A Liberal Dose of Labeling Bias

There'sa labeling overdose by congressional reporter Sheryl Gay Stolberg's "President to Renominate Five To Seats on Appeals Court" on Thursday morning.

"With just a few weeks to go before lawmakers break for their fall campaigns, and with Democrats and even some Republicans objecting to the nominees, their confirmation is in doubt." ("Even some Republicans" are the Times' favorite kind of Republican.)

"Even so, the White House move cheered conservatives, who make up an important part of Mr. Bush's political base and are passionate about putting conservatives on the bench. The battle over the judiciary was a big feature of the 2004 Congressional campaigns, and conservatives are eager to replay that fight."

Three conservative labels in 50 words - pretty impressive.
