    • The MSM is the keeper of the memory hole. With liberal election failings across the country yesterday: Virginia, Kentucky, Ohio, Huston, San Francisco even, watch them sweep those into short term memory void.

      • So far they’ve summed that up to craven culture warring and racist dog whistles…as practiced by one side, of course.

        The media is largely composed of partisan advocates, unfettered by any other imperative.

        • There are none so blind as those who cannot see.
          MSM is blind. Blind to their own biases and refusing to believe that it possible that they aren’t as pure of heart as they claim to be.

          • Frankly, I don’t think they try to hide biases anymore. They are proud of them.

            When you frame every political issue in language of a medieval mortality play consideration of another point of view isn’t just a waste of time, it’s equivocating relativism.

            That’s what we have now. We don’t have political discourse we have holy wars.

            Whether it’s in the House of Representatives, a news room, or a blog, we are morphing into quite an anti-intellectual extremist lot.

          • At least this blog contains a good bunch of people having reasonable discussions. Until some fool like The Royal POS or Chucky and his charming bride shows up. Then things go into the terlit fast.

          • I think we could have been spared those problems if Johnny were only sensitive enough to head his blog with a trigger warning.

    • There’s not much I can add to these excellent analyses. The characteristic I find prevalent among the on-air lefty media is elitism.

  1. Wolffe, a favorite Olbermann nodding head and glowing Obama chonicler (and sometimes basketball partner) is an excellent choice in Lack’s liberal wart removal effort.

  2. Charlie Brown, he’s a clown, but it’s poor Don Lemon who should be singing, “Why’s everybody always pickin’ on me!”.

    • I didn’t hear Lemon justifying the South Carolina officer’s treatment of that high school student, he said he’d withhold a verdict until he knew more.

      Well, of course he knew enough to be able to safely condemn that treatment. (Why the men in the room didn’t just grab the sides of the desk and carry it and her out…I don’t know)

      Lemon tries. His judgment is poor…but he tries. That’s why I have a soft spot for him.
