Too Little Too Late

From Deborah Howell, The Washington Post ombudsman:

"The Post provided a lot of good campaign coverage, but readers have been consistently critical of the lack of probing issues coverage and what they saw as a tilt toward Democrat Barack Obama. My surveys, which ended on Election Day, show that they are right on both counts."

Is it just me or would it not have been better to correct the reportage before Election Day since you knew you were providing biased coverage? Only unbridled arrogance can account for this.

If nothing else, this election cycle has proven that the MSM have no credibility left and are most certainly not a source of unbiased information. Coupled that with their current financial difficulties and circulation declines it can only hasten their eventual demise.
