A sigh of frustration
Someday people will understand the logical fallacy of these accusations of hypocrisy: "These radio and cable entertainers do precisely what they damn Mainstream Media reporters for doing: They 'interpret, analyze, and explain' news inside their narrow political context."

So where's the false logic? Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity, etc. do not bill themselves as reporters or anchors. In fact, their shows are interrupted every half hour for a news report. Theirs is news analysis, not coverage. They give nothing but their opinions, and they make that quite clear. The MSM, by contrast, writes "news" articles that pass massive amounts of judgement on the subject they are covering.

That's a big difference, and someday people will catch on to that.

If they haven't by now, they probably never will!
