Then she dismissed the event as "anti-government" and "anti-CNN" -- and the product of the "right-wing conservative network, Fox."

Asked about Roesgen, CNN's response: "No comment." In this space I have lamented what seems to be the advent of Designer News, that allow consumers to cull out undesirable viewpoints and information.

The irony here is that newspapers have written fawning stories about Google and Twitter and free classified ad sites as if they are all good. But when newspapers cover Fox News, they have this need to write the network off as right-wing -- end of story. Nothing to learn there, right?

Clearly there is an insatiable appetite for news from a conservative perspective that the folks who run newspapers continue to overlook -- except in the opinion pages.

There are days I wonder if newspaper and network news execs cannot change by broadening their ideological diversity -- even to save themselves. They'll keep telling themselves that they are unbiased -- up until the end.
