Imagine the Reaction If It Were Olbermann

Imagine the GOP reaction if MSNBC's Keith Olbermann agreed to host a DCCC fundraiser.

Now consider this:

Conservative CNBC host Larry Kudlow, rumored to be mulling a bid against Chris Dodd next year, is headlining a March 24th fundraiser for the National Republican Congressional Committee at DC's Building Museum, according to an invite for the event.

It's incredible how quickly CNBC is rivaling Fox News when it comes to conflicts of interest and as a bastion of biased and partisan news.

And let's not forget how numerous people began demanding that Chris Matthews should not be on the air while he was mulling his own Senate bid. Apparently, that standard doesn't apply to journalists on the right -- like Kudlow -- who is seriously considering a Senate bid in 2010 as well.

CNBC is fast joining Fox News as a laughing stock of American journalism.
