With Angle Up 4, NYT on Harry Reid: ‘Some Republicans Fear Losing Such a Powerful Ally in Washington’
By Terence P. Jeffrey|CNSNews
In a classic example of liberal media bias, the front page of the print edition of today’s New York Times carries an above-the-fold story about the Nevada U.S. Senate race–headlined, “In Nevada, It’s Hold Nose and Cast Vote.” At one point, the story says: “Some Republicans fear losing such a powerfull ally in Washington—no matter that his name is Reid—at a time when Nevada is in precarious economic shape.”
But the story does not quote a single Republican from Nevada or elsewhere, or site a single poll, that indicates that Republicans, either on the grassroots or in the leadership of the party, fear that Harry Reid will lose.
Nor does the story quote a single Republican from Nevada or elsewhere, or site a single poll, that indicates Republicans either on the grassroots or in the leadership of the party, would like Sen. Reid to be re-elected because they believe his reelection would help Nevada overcome its “precarious economic shape.”
In the Real Clear Politics average of all polls in the Nevada Senate race, Republican challenger Sharron Angle is leading Sen. Reid by 4 percentage points.
