Dismissive: We don't expect many newspapers' opinion sections to endorse Bush over Kerry this year, considering that most editorial writers lean left. But I don't think you can just dismiss them all either.

Dick Cheney tried to do that when asked on the "Today" show about The Washington Post's endorsement of Kerry. Cheney responded, "I don't deem The Post a friendly paper."

Normally that could fly, but The Post has been a strong ally of the administration, from news reporters breaking stories about Rathergate to the opinion section supporting Bush's invasion of Iraq. While the charge of liberal bias is sometimes true, you can't use that response against all your critics, because some of them were your friends.
