And they call him nuanced.

The most recent evidence of how unbiased the MSM is in its coverage of Election 2004 is an internal memo that surfaced, which was sent by ABC's political director, Marc Halperin, to its reporters.

In it, Halperin says that neither Bush 43 or John Kerry are telling the truth, but that reporters should show more leniency with Kerry than Bush.

"Kerry distorts, takes out of context, and mistakes all the time, but these are not central to his efforts to win," Halperin wrote.

They're not? Then why is Kerry doing it if not to win?

Or is Halperin saying that Kerry's constant distortions, repeated errors and self-serving lies are something he has no conscious control over. That Kerry can't help himself because that's just the way he is.

If so, then what it is "central to" is Kerry's innate character, which Halperin should not try to have ABC's reporters hide behind carefully "nuanced" news reports.
