The Media Research Center is noting how the media is treating Sen. Zell Miller.

Georgia Democratic Senator Zell Miller will speak before the Republican National Convention this evening. But in contrast to how excited reporters were at the notion this spring that John McCain might jump over and help John Kerry’s Democratic campaign, and how then-Republican Senator Jim Jeffords’ defection in 2001 was frequently cast as evidence that the Republican Party was inhospitable to moderates, the networks have not touted Miller’s switch as any kind of evidence of a failure of John Kerry’s campaign or proof that the national Democratic Party has become intolerant of non-liberals.

Are we detecting any sort of bias here? Matt Lauer was apoplectic over Miller’s Senate record and his confidence in Bush. Don’t be looking for too much balance from tonight’s major media talking heads on that subject.
