Speaking of liberal media bias

The article URL: http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/bush_voter_suppression

How unbiased! It reminds me of CNN using a profanity to name a picture of President and Mrs. Bush (link to our friend Jackie Passey's blog). Dean Esmay also had more on the looney leftist moonbats.

GOP Pays Legal Bills in Vote-Thwart Case

The Republican Party says it still has a zero-tolerance policy for tampering with voters even as it pays the legal bills for a former Bush campaign official charged with conspiring to thwart Democrats from voting in New Hampshire.

James Tobin, the president's 2004 campaign chairman for New England, is charged in New Hampshire federal court with four felonies accusing him of conspiring with a state GOP official and a GOP consultant in Virginia to jam Democratic and labor union get-out-the-vote phone banks in November 2002.

The Republican National Committee already has spent more than $722,000 to provide Tobin, who has pleaded innocent, a team of lawyers from the high-powered Washington law firm of Williams & Connolly. The firm's other clients have included former President Clinton and Sen. Hillary Clinton and former Housing Secretary Henry Cisneros.

Republican Party officials said they don't ordinarily discuss specifics of their legal work, but confirmed to The Associated Press they had agreed to underwrite Tobin's defense because he was a longtime supporter and that he assured them he had committed no crimes.

"Jim is a longtime friend who has served as both an employee and an independent contractor for the RNC," a spokeswoman for the RNC, Tracey Schmitt, said Wednesday. "This support is based on his assurance and our belief that Jim has not engaged in any wrongdoing."
He hasn't even been convicted yet, that is, not in a court of law. The media has already convicted him. While I'm not a Republican, isn't he supposed to be innocent until found guilty? Then why the insinuations about the Republican Party paying his legal bills?

Or course he is guilty. Guilty of being a Republican. Just like when Dean wanted DeLay thrown in jail. Charges and a trial were not considered.

Then again, when PETA pays ELF's legal bills then it is just providing a means to a decent legal defense.

Here is a great editorial cartoon on media bias.

Yes, that's another great one from C&F. As usual, they hit it dead on.
