Rather odd, isn't it?

So it’s not news that the Bush administration has been preparing what they call “Video News Releases” (VNRs) which it’s been giving to TV news stations and paying them to run them. These VNRs are of course friendly to Bush policy, even though they’re passed off as if they were real news.

So what I want to know is: since so many conservatives were calling for the head of Dan Rather and other CBS executives when he aired a slanted, poorly researched report on Bush’s military service, shouldn’t they then be calling for the heads of the station managers who are airing these partisan VNRs? I mean, think about it…
