It's from Teresa Tomeo's Noise.
How can a reporter or editor do what is right when he or she is being told in writing to favor one candidate over the other by ignoring mistakes or exaggerations? On November 1, 2004, just days before the election, the Center for Media and Public Affairs (CMPA) issued an alarming study about how the media coverage, especially the major broadcast news operations, blatantly favored John Kerry. CMPA said that Kerry received the most favorable network news coverage of any presidential candidate "since CMPA began tracking election coverage in 1988."

Wow. Good thing that book is out-of-date, eh? That kind of thing could never happen again. And honestly, I think everyone I know has done this one, but if you haven't and want to, that's what the comments are for.
