Now I know why I don’t watch CBS News…

For what little it's worth, here's how CBS News reported on the COLA controversy.

What's striking is that in a two-and-a-half minute segment – which is in-depth journalism by today's standards – CBS interviewed precisely no one who opposed paying an ad hoc COLA this year, despite ample reason to believe it's unjustified (when both the Wall Street Journal and the Washington Post editorialize against it, you can be pretty sure something's gone wrong).

Come on, people – at least pretend to get both sides of the story.
