WASHINGTON (AP) – Federal checks could begin flowing again as early as next week to millions of jobless people who lost up to seven weeks of unemployment benefits in a congressional standoff. President Barack Obama on Thursday signed into law a restoration of benefits for people who have been out of work for six months or more. Congress approved the measure earlier in the day. The move ended an interruption that cut off payments averaging about $300 a week to 2 1/2 million people who have been unable to find work in the aftermath of the nation’s long and deep recession…..

Rick Sanchez, who hosts his Rick’s List program for two hours during the afternoon on CNN, will be taking on the network’s 8 pm Eastern hour slot for several weeks between Campbell Brown’s departure on Wednesday and the start of the ex-Democratic Governor of New York Eliot Spitzer (the infamous Client #9) and sometime-conservative Kathleen Parker’s new program.

Sanchez will likely bring his two-year record of liberal bias to his temporary gig. Some of the worst examples from the Media Research Center’s archives……………..

Conservative journalist Andrew Breitbart and Eric Boehlert of the liberal organization Media Matters debated each other on Wednesday’s Good Morning America. But, ABC only identified the ideology of the right-leaning guest. Boehlert was simply the “senior fellow with the watchdog group Media Matters for America.” [MP3 audio here.]

Yet, Breitbart’s website was described in a previous segment as “conservative.” In a follow-up piece, news anchor Juju Chang labeled him “a conservative blogger.” Breitbart and Boehlert were appearing to discuss the firing of USDA employee Shirley Sherrod, following the posting of a tape of her on Breitbart’s website.

A number of topics not usually highlighted on network television were discussed. Host George Stephanopoulos actually allowed Breitbart to raise the 2008 case of voter intimidation by the New Black Panther Party, a story previously ignored on GMA………………………..

White House correspondent Chip Reid began a report on the new bill by proclaiming: “It’s being hailed as the biggest shakeup of Wall Street since the Great Depression.” Reid enthusiastically touted provisions in the legislation: “The bill’s centerpiece is the Bureau of Consumer Financial Protection….charged with regulating financial products, including mortgages, credit cards, and student loans. The legislation also gives broad new powers to the federal government, allowing it to take control of and shut down large financial institutions……………
