What, You Didn't Hear About This On CNN?

Imagine the outrage if this guy's name were Limbaugh, Hannity, Beck, Savage, or Ingraham:

Former KGO Talk Host Bernie Ward Sentenced to 7 Years

for possession and distribution of child pornography.

I heard Ward's show when WMAL syndicated him a number of years ago; on that episode, he was gloating over the now-discredited San Jose Mercury-News investigation of the CIA funneling cocaine into Los Angeles. Ward also liked to take potshots at Rush's weight, while almost certainly weighing more than Rush himself.

It's possible that the reason this didn't get more coverage is that Ward didn't have that big a following. I think it's more likely that his position as a liberal shill gave him a pass.
