The folks at the Associated Press do have their moments“:

Republican majorities in the Virginia House and Senate pushed the bill to passage one year after a more modest GOP-sponsored voter identification law failed to prevent President Barack Obama from winning Virginia for the second presidential election in a row and a Democratic U.S. Senate victory.

Funny how the AP (this writer and their layers of editors) don’t seem to have a problem assuming that the intent of voter ID laws is to disenfranchise a group of voters rather than just to keep people ineligible to vote from doing so, but these same “objective reporters” would consider it an act of journalistic malpractice to assume that Dem pushes against voter ID laws are attempts to make it easier to cheat.

The MSM’s bias is often easiest to spot when it comes to noticing who usually earns the benefit of the doubt.
