FAIR AND BALANCED….Dan Froomkin on George Bush’s endless “town hall” meetings:

No one gets in trouble for reporting what he says and calling the events whatever the White House calls them. By contrast, if you consistently point out his errors and regularly describe the events in a unflattering way ? especially without a named or unnamed “critic” to attribute it to ? you are in some danger of being considered a partisan, a kook, and off the reservation.
