Credibility? What credibility?

USA Today reported yesterday that CBS arranged for the source of the now-discredited Rathergate memos to talk to the Kerry campaign. So much for any notion of journalistic integrity.

Were it not a major media organization, the perpetrator would be liable for heavy fines and prison time under the McCain-Feingold campaign "reform" act. However, that act gave the media the ability to act with impunity, even, as we see here, when they act with obvious bias in a blatant attempt to influence the outcome of an election. Why should CBS be able to throw its weight behind a candidate so blatantly with no penalty, while the NRA's hands are tied? What's fair about this?
