More examples of "even handed" news coverage

When Bush did the requisite folk dances overseas, he was a fool. In the words of one critic, "George Bush has one more month left in his presidency but a lifetime left of stupid, funny moments."

But, when Obama folk danced in India, he "won accolades among Indians for at least trying out his moves" "to the seeming delight of Indian viewers" and "danced into India's heart".

"Danced into India's heart"? I'm no supporter of or apologist for George W. Bush, but you have to wonder if such blatant bias is the result of intent or reflex, and why no one in the media ever seems to notice their own obvious favoritism.
