An Illuminating Contrast

If Americans were not yet cynical enough about the objectivity of the MSM, consider this illuminating contrast:

Even as the MSM has agonized over whether to report on the pregnancy of Huma Abedin, Anthony Weiner's wife, the staffs at the Washington Post and The New York Times have been calling on (Palin-obsessed) readers to help them cull the Palin emails (the Times' note is most revealing; it asks readers to identify not just "newsworthy" emails, but also even just "interesting" ones).  

If juicy emails about Bristol Palin's pregnancy are found, do you think any of the delicate considerations that have governed their reporting on Mrs. Weiner will inhibit them from printing them?
