Emanuel's Daily Phone Call to Media Friends

What would the media say if George W. Bush or his chief of staff held a daily phone call with Brit Hume, Sean Hannity or Rush Limbaugh every day for eight years? That is what Obama's chief Rahm Emanuel has been doing with George Snufalufugus, Paul Begala and James Carville for the past 17 years. Every day.

One could argue that Begala and Carville are really politicians and moonlight as commentators, but Snuf is supposed to be an objective news chief for ABC. Everyone knows that the media is in the tank for Obama, but is it possible to have any slightly objective thought in this situation? I suppose the bottom line is that no American expects the media to be objective anyway...which might be why half the media outlets in this country will likely be bankrupt by the end of '09.
