Pure Bias: The Vanity Fair Article on Bush v. Gore
By Mike Rappaport

I have decided to read this article out of obligation to find out what might have gone on behind the scenes at the Supreme Court. (Available here.) But is it a chore. I am about 5 pages into it, and the piece has no credibility whatsoever. Every action by the Republicans is viewed as improper; every action by the Democrats as legitimate. Republicans want to win by violating people's rights; Democrats just want to enforce the law, which will result in their legitimate election. Dan Rather has nothing on these guys.

If you are a partisan Democrat -- I am sure there are many among the Right Coast readership -- just remember this. It may be fun to read the story, especially during the current campaign, but don't mistake the yarn with the truth.
