trying to take the heat off of FOX and it's RINO talking points?<quoted text>According to a new Gallup poll, 55 percent of Americans say they have little to no confidence that they can rely on mass media to report the news "fully, accurately and fairly."
Forty-six percent say the media is too liberal and just 13 percent think it's too conservative.
Justification for this public sentiment is evident as the budget and debt-ceiling issues heat up and the press can hardly restrain its disdain for Tea Party Republicans and the idea that our nation may really be in crisis.
New York Times columnist David Brooks does a regular political commentary feature along with Mark Shields on the "PBS NewsHour." It's hard to believe that this feature is supposed to be balanced, with Brooks the alleged conservative and Shields the liberal. But for PBS, like The New York Times where Brooks writes his column, anyone not on the far left is a conservative.
In a recent "NewsHour" segment about the budget debate, Brooks talked about "the rise of Ted Cruzism."
According to Brooks, the Republican freshman senator from Texas is not a "normal" senator who sees himself in Congress to form alliances and pass legislation. Rather, per Brooks, Cruz is more a "media protest person."
The same thing is happening in the House, says Brooks. House Republicans are "not normal.... They just want to obstruct."

seems they're now obstructing each other.
