-- MSNBC screamer Keith Olbermann feeling so angry that Fox's Chris Wallace supposedly put Bill Clinton through the wringer that he insulted him as "a monkey posing as a newscaster."

-- Dan Rather once again saying he believes in the phony Bush National Guard memo story "absolutely." (Here insert pained Al Gore sigh -- or Dean scream.)

-- Bryant Gumbel trashing the Winter Olympics for being too white, so devoid of blacks that "the Winter Games look like a GOP convention."

-- ABC's Terry Moran getting so enraptured by his man-crush on Barack Obama that he actually reported from Iowa, "They're even naming babies after him!"

-- Katie Couric (at NBC) lecturing Domino's Pizza founder Tom Monaghan that creating a Florida town based on Catholic values was "de facto segregation" that is "really infringing on civil liberties and freedom of speech and right to privacy and all sorts of basic tenets that this country was founded on."

-- Katie Couric (at NBC) telling Al Gore his movie showed he was "funny, vulnerable, disarming, self-effacing," and should have been electable in 2000. After that, she helpfully added that global warming would ruin New York: "Even Manhattan would be in deep water, right?"

-- Katie Couric (at CBS) spreading the conspiracy theory that lower gas prices might be "an election-year present from President Bush to fellow Republicans."

-- CNN's Jack Cafferty proclaiming that liberal Sen. Arlen Specter was "all that's standing between us and a full-blown (Bush) dictatorship in this country."

Of course, some reporters actually do like dictatorships, especially the Cuban kind. The Associated Press' Vanessa Arrington reported that under the thumb of Fidel Castro, Cubans still enjoy "a rich and accessible cultural life" and "a leisurely lifestyle," not to mention "their free education system, high literacy rates and top-notch doctors."

Perhaps Arrington and Arthur Sulzberger Jr. can counsel college graduates to consider emigrating to Cuba, where even legal citizens have no rights.
