FAIRYTALES VS. REALITY
First, from that Bill O'Reilly interview with Arnold Schwarzenegger, the fairytale:
O'REILLY: All right. If it's true, though, that the L.A. Times is taking their cues from the Davis campaign, why would a newspaper that's supposed to be objective do that?
SCHWARZENEGGER: Well, have you ever seen how many times they've put Davis on the cover and Bustamante on the cover, and I'm on page 12 or page 20 or something like that?
Now the reality, from Reuters:
The actor did not make clear whether he was referring to photographs or stories in the paper, but a search of the Lexis-Nexis database showed that Davis has been mentioned on the paper's front page 64 times since Schwarzenegger joined the race on Aug. 6, while Schwarzenegger appears 61 times over the same period. Bustamante is mentioned 48 times.
Are Republicans utterly incapable of shame?
