Begala and Willis to Media: Just State the Facts, Jack

Paul Begala on the media's he said/she said problem. When it comes to facts, demonstrable facts  — i.e., Gov. Palin supported the bridge to nowhere, she was up to her ears in earmarks as mayor — it's part of the media's job to state these facts. It's not a matter of partisan debate.

Or, if you want, we can go back to the John McCain-has-no-genitalia discussion. That was a fun one. 

UPDATE: Oliver Willis slams the Washington Post for the same problem.
