Bloomberg Blames Tea Party, CNN Sympathizes with NYC Bomber

James SimpsonERIC CHESLEY:New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg can keep his 25 cents because his opinion isn’t worth even that much.

At some other time in our nation’s history, an organization like this would not have been commissioned to conduct a poll, and perhaps it would not even have existed. At a minimum, its poll would have been considered biased and rejected by every newspaper in the country. Read more…
