Fair. Balanced. Not.

Yet another data point in the whole "media bias" debate, for those who still cling to the illusion that the press is reporting news as opposed to promoting storylines.

During the confirmation process for the first nominated Attorney General candidate for each of the last two Presidents, senators of the opposition party have requested that confirmation votes be delayed for a week for further review and questions. The Washington Post has reported these stories under the following headlines:
(2001, Democrat Senators delay confirmation of John Ashcroft):

Vote On Ashcroft Is Delayed A Week; Democrats Cite Need for More Review

(2009, Republican Senators delay confirmation of Eric Holder):

Republicans Obstruct Holder's Path to Justice Department
