Nothing's private anymore

We hear it again and again, nothing is private. I agree with the contrarian (perhaps making me a double contrarian) that an email sent by a media staffer expressing an opinion is not news, unless, for example, Matt Drudge was caught sending an email extolling the virtues of Hitler's human extermination program.
On the other hand, people love to read this. In a debate with a friend regarding the "liberal media," my friend brought up that he had heard of Dan Rather, during a commercial break, was heard rooting against Bush during election coverage. It's not something I had heard before.
Regardless, people, being people and especially Americans, have a right to personal opinions. It's the job of the media to not let those opinions get in the way of balanced coverage.
