When Lou Dobbs tells Lesley Stahl of "60 Minutes" that he's not a fan of Bush, she questions how he can consider himself to be a "journalist."
In a related story, the Giuliani campaign reportedly complained to NBC about choosing Olbermann's to do the post-debate coverage. I suspect Rudy was a little miffed by Keith's scathing Special Comment. ThinkProgress , MediaMatters and Glenn have more.
Nicole: It's frustrating to say the least to have respected members of the media fall for the conservative framing that anything that is not essentially stenography for the current administration equates to bias. Yet Chris Matthews's effusive praise for Giuliani or Romney or Bush would not be considered bias on the other side. There is no one who can credibly call Lou Dobbs a liberal, yet because he openly disagrees with administration policies on a couple of discrete issues, his journalistic integrity is somehow in question.
