Media Bias, Anyone?

Look at the way the Washington Post covers the Estrada confirmation hearings. Here’s the headline and first paragraph:

Bush Nominee Pushed Through Committee
Judiciary Panel Approves Estrada Along Party-Line Vote

The Republican-controlled Senate Judiciary Committee voted along party lines today to approve the nomination of Miguel Estrada to the Circuit Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia, spurning Democrats’ arguments that he was a “stealth” nominee chosen to help “pack” the court with conservatives.

Democrats stall on Bush’s judicial nominees for almost two years.  Republicans come out of the gate running to get them confirmed.  Then the Post uses charged words like"pushed," “party-line,” “spurning,” “stealth,” and “pack.” The DNC couldn’t have written a more favorable article.
