The NewsBusters Weekly Recap: February 3 to 9

This week, Chris Matthews' anti-Bush bigotry spilled over into a profanity laden rant. The "Hardball" host dropped the F-bomb during a live interview with Don Imus.

Meanwhile, CNN’s Paula Zahn connected opposition of illegal immigration to, you guessed it, the Ku Klux Klan. This is the same network, however, that tried to downplay proven religious bigotry by a blogger for the John Edwards campaign.

Over on ABC, "Good Morning America" anchor Diane Sawyer spent the week in Syria. She let the despotism of President Bashar Assad go mostly unchallenged.

During other segments, Sawyer chose to ask him about video games and whether he uses an iPod. There was also time to discuss the wonderful relationship that Syria’s dictator has with his wife.

Finally, the "Today" show couldn’t get enough of John Edwards, a Democratic "superstar." And the solution for Iraq? Raise taxes!
