I think they same could be said for any type of media or journalism. Some writers are going to push an agenda, because they can and want to. In the realm of politics and media that is exactly the case. A journalist has the ability to destroy a candidate, take for example in 2008 when Katie Couric interviewed Sarah Palin. The interview made Palin look like a complete moron. Well, now that is the case. It just highlighted how ill-prepared she was as a candidate, but Couric was attacked for how she interviewed Palin.
