Pigs fly!... Washingon Post admits their election coverage was biased

After the election, Washington Post admits uneven coverage:

"One gaping hole in coverage involved Joe Biden, Obama's running mate. When Gov. Sarah Palin was nominated for vice president, reporters were booking the next flight to Alaska. Some readers thought The Post went over Palin with a fine-tooth comb and neglected Biden. They are right; it was a serious omission."
Do you think Mclatchy will admit their Obama boosterism?
UPDATE: This ain't Hell isn't impressed: "Too little too late"
Malpractice: McClatchy failed its readers by choosing not to examine Obama's record
How many McClatchy reporters does it take to find a Joe Biden gaffe?
McClatchy's crack team of anti-Palin investigators misses a major Biden misstatement
McClatchy bureau chief says McClatchy doesn't need to report both sides fairly .

..Rather like a serial liar admitting " my bad "; Of small interest and no value. Rather like Rather claiming " fake, but accurate ".

You know a problem needs drastic action when they admit what they did was bias and therefore unethical, yet state bluntly that they will do it again.

They are just leaving themselves some wiggle room, when the second coming blows up in everyone's face.
