Media Matters turned its bias detectors on the corporate media’s coverage of the Keystone XL pipeline, a proposed $7 billion Canada-to-Texas oil way that the Obama administration put on hold last week.

Raw Video: Ukraine Parliament Smoke-Bomb-Egg-Fight

Here’s some footage to keep the dysfunction of U.S. politics in perspective. Our lawmakers may not agree on anything, they may be rude to the president and on the corporate take, but at least they have the decency to keep their eggs and smoke bombs at home.

With the Russian-Georgian war winding down, McCain has firmly established himself as an old-fashioned Cold Warrior and a supporter of the huge oil companies that have a big stake in Georgia and the rest of the Caucasus.
