From Washington Journal April 9, 2009. Rich Lowry and C-SPAN get taken to task from a couple of Democratic callers. It's pretty pathetic that every day citizens do a better job of holding these people's feet to the fire than our media does.

As Think Progress noted the second caller in the above clip's point about the balance at C-SPAN is a valid one.

The caller’s criticism has a ring of truth. A 2007 Center for Economic and Policy Research study found that C-SPAN “overwhelmingly favor[ed] conservative think tanks in its coverage by a three-to-one margin over all left-of-center think tanks.” Indeed, MSNBC host Rachel Maddow recently asked of the neocons, “Why is it that people who are catastrophically wrong about big important things like foreign policy and war never, like, flunk out of that as a subject?”
