NPR Check strikes again

MyTWords, a 43-year-old guy with a job in education in downstate Urbana, is keeping an eye on "right-wing, progovernment, and corporate bias" on National Public Radio at NPR Check.

Last weekend he noted that all the polls showed that the November 7 voters were opposed to the Iraq war, corruption, and George W. Bush. So why are NPR personalities like Mara Liasson and Daniel Schorr making up the notion that voters asked for bipartisanship and cooperation?

Why do you think? My first (charitable) guess is that they share the kind of upper-middle-class good taste that frowns on actual partisanship and strives to be a bit above it all.
