Agenda setting media

Michael Calderone and Mike Allen of Politico have a fantastic piece on the agenda-setting conservative media.  Charges of bias in the media have been around foreover; some of it is merited, and some isn't.  But this piece lays out the real fact: bias doesn't occur in the actual reporting of a story, but rather the decision on which stories to report on.  Great read.
