Uh, I Didn't Mean My Network

CBS News president revises and extends his revealing remarks: "Ultimately journalism has changed…partisanship is very much a part of journalism now."
Over the years, CBS News has often faced accusations of liberal bias, which it has steadfastly denied.  Was Moonves suggesting a new policy?  I asked network spokesman Dana McClintock whether Moonves, when he said, "partisanship is very much a part of journalism now," was referring to CBS News.

McClintock sent back a four-word response: "No he was not."

So: When the chief executive of CBS attends an Obama fundraiser and explains his presence in part by saying that "partisanship is very much a part of journalism now," he does not mean CBS.
Damned few people would agree with him.
