"We have stood by too long and watched other people make money off the hard work of our journalists."

Political bias in the news
Or, why McCain is getting hosed in the press. "Before answering the question, indulge us in noting that the subject of ideological bias in the news media is a drag. The people who care about it typically come at the issue with scalding biases of their own. Any statement journalists make on the subject can and will be used against them.
