I want to be the first to say that I have received no taxpayer money to tilt my coverage in favor of the President. There is a big difference in getting taxpayer money to push some ideology or program for the administration and having the integrity to do the same because you know it will help your career and endear yourself to people who bully you.

It is disgusting to me that Armstrong Williams has made so much more money than me. If you want be filthy rich you don’t go into journalism (with the exception of everybody who works in the news business). You go into journalism to feel important, to have that rush when you enter a room and know that you have the power to shape reality in a way that will ultimately benefit yourself.
