Can't the media do even basic labeling of the biases of people they get quotes from?

Ed Rollins on Huckabee's chances of running for president:

“My sense is he would like to do it,” said longtime GOP consultant Ed Rollins, Huckabee’s 2008 campaign chairman and still a close adviser.


Here is what Rollins wrote for CNN under the title: "Palin, I knew Reagan. You're no Reagan."

To paraphrase the late Sen. Lloyd Bentsen's comments to Dan Quayle in the 1988 vice presidential debate: I knew Ronald Reagan, and you're no Ronald Reagan. . . .


For some reason though, Rollins forgot to mention that he had a financial relationship with Huckabee.

None of the media that I have seen quoting Ed Rollins' attacks on Palin have noted his conflict of interest with Huckabee.

“To paraphrase the late Sen. Lloyd Bentsen's comments to Dan Quayle in the 1988 vice presidential debate: I knew Ronald Reagan, and you're no Ronald Reagan,” Rollins wrote on CNN’s website. “You might as well compare yourself to Abraham Lincoln or Teddy Roosevelt.” . . .
