Mickey Kaus explains why he’s afraid of debating Ezra Klein. I also earn Kaus’ praise, which probably won’t endear me to my netroots fan base. To regain anti-Kaus street cred, let me note that he reads a New York Times story that he thinks is unduly favorable to John McCain calls it liberal bias. There’s no doubt that the press has, for years, suffered from a pro-McCain bias. It may even have been somewhat plausible in 2000 to chalk the McCain love up to liberalism (but then how to explain the press’ hatred for Al Gore) but as time goes by don’t you eventually need to just recognize that reporters like John McCain?
