The media have been bad boys (and girls)

Over at Politico today, Roger Simon responds to those who say the news media have been unfair to Sarah Palin, the Alaska governor and Republican vice presidential nominee, in the days since her selection by John McCain.

Meanwhile at the New York Observer, Leon Neyfakh says there's really nothing new about politicians blaming the media for their bad images. Republicans make more of it than do Democrats, though some Democrats insist they get the back of the hand more often than do Republicans. and if you're among those who buy into the liberal media bias theory just keep in mind that Bill Clinton believed he had worse press than any president in history. 

When does critical/probing become unfair?
