2 conservativs + 0 liberals ="bipartison panel"

Opposite of Novak on CNN's discussion of O'Conner's resignation Jack Valenti endorsed Antonin Scalia to be the next Chief Justice. It's nice to know how well CNN represents both sides of the argument.

Good fair coverage throughout the morning too:
Between 10:30 a.m. and 11:45 a.m. ET, the guests on Fox News discussing O'Connor's retirement included:

Sen. Orrin G. Hatch (R-UT)
Robert Bork, former District of Columbia Circuit Court judge
William Kristol, editor of The Weekly Standard
Fred Barnes, executive editor of The Weekly Standard
C. Boyden Gray, former White House counsel for President George H.W. Bush
Former Senator Alan Simpson (R-WY)

Over the same time period, CNN's guests included:

Sen. John McCain (R-AZ)
Bork
Edwin Meese, former attorney general for President Ronald Reagan

I seen Jack Velanti on many occasions and most of the time he gives liberal answers. Also the reason that they had Conservative and Republicans on was because O'Conner was a republican and they will be the one to decide who the new justice is. I personally want to see Gonzalez. I think he is the most moderate of anyone Bush could nonimate. i know people will bring ujp Abu Graibe but it was a mistake and everybody makes mistakes.
