CorporateMediaWhores: No Democrats Allowed

Daily Kos: Roll Call carries GOP's water

So the NSRC is going to air anti-Byrd attack ads. No surprise there. But a Roll Call reporter "wrote" a story about the ads as fed to her by the Republicans, under the condition she not include any opposing viewpoints.

Wow, Laura; shake that moneymaker. Oh, right, you're not a pro... you give it away for free.

"Turns out Roll Call writer Lauren Whittington got the story from the GOP with the ground rule that she not call anyone else for the story. In a news media that has fallen mightily, this is just one more gross failure of established journalistic process (time for another blogger ethics conference?)."
