The Media's Drilling Double Standard

On NBC's Meet the Press just now, Gwen Ifill said some Democrats are "backing off their knee-jerk opposition to drilling."

Let's review.

When Republicans filibuster anything that has anything to do with energy unless it does only one thing - let Big Oil do more drilling in more of America's public lands and waters, they're holding firm to their principles.

When Democrats oppose more drilling because they know we can't drill our way out of our energy crisis and that more drilling will do nothing to lower gas prices while adding Big Oil's record profits, they're knee-jerk obstructionists.

Gotta love that "liberal" media.
