Journalist offended by accusation of bias

In an interview with Joe “the Plumber” Wurzelbacher, CNN’s morning anchor John Roberts was deeply offended by the suggestion that he might support a candidate.  Wurzelbacher laughed out loud at Roberts’s statement “Hey, I’m not out there stumping for anybody, I’m a journalist.”

Wurzelbacher backed off, saying that he didn’t know about Roberts specifically.  He needn’t have.  As Glenn Reynolds reminds us, John Roberts was the one who committed a classic Kinsley Gaffe by saying “we” when asking Paul Begala how Democrats should respond to Republican attacks.
