It took eight (8) paragraphs for NY Times to identify as a Democrat the WVa congressman who steered $1/4 mill to five of his very own non-profits, though early in a story is the usual place. Not to mention his senior-Dem status on the gosh-darn ETHICS COMMITTEE. Two days EARLIER, Wall Street Journal had put him on Appropriations (?), where with Sen. Byrd's help he earmarked lotsabucks for friends and allies. Tsk, tsk. It's the paper of record? Or broken record? Dennis Byrne has it.
