Fair and Balanced?

I was listening to Teresa Tommeo on Catholic Exchange and she brought up a really important point concerning Katie Couric.

Apparently, when she was on the Today show, Katie interviewed Whoopi Goldberg. Whoopi is an ardent pro-choice advocate and she referenced the fact that Katie and her attended a pro-choice rally together. Katie tried to write this off, but it is important to note that as a journalist, unless she there to cover it, she ought not participate lest she favor one side over another. As an opinion piece, that's fine; as a news report, that's not acceptable.

Hmmmm, I wonder what would have happened if it had been the National Prolife March...
