What Media Bias? Part 178: the Unfolding Journolist Scandal

This just gets worse and worse for the left by the day – these are the supposedly unbiased people who will just bring us the facts:

LAURA ROZEN: People we no longer have to listen to: would it be unwise to start a thread of people we are grateful we no longer have to listen to? If not, I’ll start off: Michael Rubin.

MICHAEL COHEN, NEW AMERICA FOUNDATION: Mark Penn and Bob Shrum. Anyone who uses the expression “Real America.” We should send there ass to Gitmo!

JESSE TAYLOR, PANDAGON.NET: Michael Barone? Please?

LAURA ROZEN: Karl Rove, Newt Gingrich (afraid it’s not true), Drill Here Drill Now, And David Addington, John Yoo, we’ll see you in court?

JEFFREY TOOBIN, THE NEW YORKER: As a side note, does anyone know what prompted Michael Barone to go insane?

MATT DUSS: LEDEEN.

SPENCER ACKERMAN: Let’s just throw Ledeen against a wall. Or, pace Dr. Alterman, throw him through a plate glass window. I’ll bet a little spot of violence would shut him right the (Expletive Deleted) up, as with most bullies.

JOE KLEIN, TIME: Pete Wehner…these sort of things always end badly.

ERIC ALTERMAN, AUTHOR, WHAT LIBERAL MEDIA: (Expletive Deleted) Nascar retards…

The leftist bias of the MSM has been so pronounced for a couple decades now that only leftists and MSMers were willing to deny it with a straight face. At this point, however, you just have to be stupid to not admit it.

And the thing is, if they would just admit it, the issue would go away – what bothers people about the MSM is not the bias, but the pretense that there is no bias. As usual, the cover up is worse than the underlying crime.
