We got your unfair right here

Michele Bachmann took a page from the Palin playbook today, telling a friendly talk show host that the media had reported her Revolutionary War misstatements only because she was a conservative politician. To her credit, Bachmann refrained from using the grade school phrase 'lamestream media'.
“We all know there’s a double standard in the media," she told Laura Ingram, "as we know all 3,400 members of the mainstream media are part of the Obama press contingent.”
The mainstream media immediately pushed back, stating that it had over 7,000 members and that Bachmann had "simply pulled the lower figure out of her ass."
