Just the phrase "conservative charge" raises my hackles.
 
We've had far too much charging by conservatives; what we have always needed, and usually do have, is objectivity in the press.  Devotion to truth is the credo of responsible reportage.
 
The people been conditioned by repetition of half truths, abandoning their responsibility to make sound judgments on their own. It takes time to judge character, and the populace has become lazy and lets others influence them.
