Bias in TV News

I long felt that ABC was the least biased of the top three US networks. I was also a fan of Charlie Gibson ever since I first saw him during his first time as a host of Good Morning America a very long time ago when I watched while stuck at home with an injury. But the last few weeks in general and Charlie Gibson's interview of Gov. Palin in particular have changed my mind on both counts. I had overlooked ABC's hiring of an obviously biased former Clinton administration person but things have just gotten out of hand by them recently. They treat Obama with kid gloves while Gibson in body language, invasion of space and pressing trying to get the answer that he thought Palin should give rather than accepting her anwsers that were complete and answered the question the first time was some of the worst bias I have ever seen. ABC is now as bad or worse than CBS which had set the standard for liberal bias for many years. And Gibson has totally lost the respect that I had for him for decades.
