No Media Bias To See Here

Apparently, the L.A. Times is interested in the fact that Justice Clarence Thomas' wife is involved in the Tea Party movement.  But they seemed relatively uninterested in the fact that both Justices Ginsburg and Sotomayor -- the Justices themselves, not their spouses -- were intimately involved in political causes prior to taking the bench.  And Eugene Volokh notes that several circuit court judges have spouses with political jobs, including one whose spouse is the current Governor of Pennsylvania (and the former head of the Democratic National Committee).  But hey, that would require reporting, rather than agenda-driven writing.
