...Now, if he were a CONSERVATIVE talk show host...

It is currently 11:51pm. It is a lead story on the homepage of Drudge and FoxNews, but there is nothing to be found anywhere on the homepages of ABC News, CBS News, MSNBC, or CNN. That would be the news that KGO-San Francisco talk show host - and screaming lefty - Bernie Ward, has been indicted on charges of child pornography.

Now, I realize that Ward does not have the popularity or visibility of Limbaugh, Hannity, Savage, et. al., but you would think that it would at least be mentioned somewhere by the major news agencies besides Fox News.

Now, reverse the scenario. Imagine a second-tier conservative host like Hugh Hewitt, Lars Larson, or Mike Smerconish got popped for the same crime, do you imagine the left media would ignore it like they have Ward's predicament? And no, Fox News and Drudge would not ignore it if the host were on the right. They have always proved themselves to be equal-opportunity slime-peddlers. How many Larry Craig bathroom news stories did I have to endure from Fox News before that story finally played itself out?

Good Day to You, Sir

Let's hope he's just guilty of really really bad judgment and it's not what it appears. As I do with all cases like this, I'll wait until all the facts are in. If we demanded that the Duke LAX players get the benefit of the doubt then we need to do the same here. Then if he really did do it, we'll truly have the high ground.

Oh, I'm not saying he is guilty. I'm pointing out that if the politics were reversed, the talk host in question would be splashed all over the left-wing medias' news cycle. This guy isn't.

That I believe, but I refuse to go down the road the media did with the Duke kids...
