T.R. Reid I'm not one to get much worked up about media bias but I've certainly noticed that as more and more journalists seek professional refuge outside the nose-diving news business, many of them are taking Democratic jobs. A lot have gone to work for the Obama administration, for example.

And now I see that T.R. Reid, a former reporter for the Washington Post, is seeking appointment to a seat in the Colorado House as a Democrat. A vacancy committee will fill the position next week.

Reid wants to make health care his central focus. He's written a book and produced a documentary on the topic.

Nothing wrong with that, but I would like to see an ex-journalist take a job as a Republican sometime soon. (Okay, it's not like the GOP is a growth sector right now, either...)
