MSM: From Nauseating to Nauseated
I'm not sure which is more stupefying - the degree of bias in the mainstream media or their utter inability to learn that they're going to get busted when they traipse it around like this.
Devoted commenter M.A., if you're reading this, this is how I know the media swings left.
A shiny Sacagawea awaits anyone who can get their hands on an unredacted copy or otherwise gleans the identity of the recipient.
John Green is the executive producer of ABC's Good Morning America Weekend Edition, which I can't say I watch, um, ever. But in fairness, a look at the lineup of recent and pending stories suggests a programming menu without much ideological slant (unless "Are the Red Sox good for your health?" qualifies as pandering to a blue state).
According to the Drudge piece:
A friend of Green's at ABC says Green is mortified by the email. "John feels so badly about this email..."
Well, I doubt Green is in fact mortified by the email or that he feels badly about the email. He did after all write it. I think more likely Green is "mortified" that the email got out and that he "feels so badly" about his views being made public.
We all have views, John, but so long as you work for an organization that pretends to be objective, you really need to curb the blatant and electronic displays of your politics, no matter your level of queasiness.
May I recommend blogging? You get to trot out your leanings and predispositions willy-nilly and hither and yon, and yet you enjoy a higher degree of credibility because your audience knows you're not selling them a bill of goods.
Of course there is the 100% pay cut...
Update: Keith Olberman has just informed us that it was the White House that leaked this document to the "infamous, deplorable Matt Drudge", something he has determined in all of his trademark journalistic rigor simply by noting that "the timing is too good".
As I typed that last sentence, Olberman went on to note that Dick Cheney likes to watch Fox News because he "tells them what to say". Someone get this man some help. Lots of people prefer Fox News, Keith. For instance, in your time slot, you lose out to FNC by more than 5-to-1.
