Tim Graham lets his partisan bias show in a Sept. 15 NewsBusters post in which he repeatedly refers to Robert Casey Jr., the Democratic opponent for Sen. Rick Santorum's seat, as "Bobby Casey."

As The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reported:

The Santorum campaign constantly refers to their challenger as "Bobby Casey Jr." Using the diminutive is meant to remind voters that Mr. Casey's political career is a function of the fact that he is the son of the late governor.

If your job is to "expose and combat" bias, should you really be forwarding biased terminology in your own commentary?
