Bootlicking Media, Redux
You have to check out these examples, just at NBC alone, of how our allegedly liberal media is bootlicking the GOP.
First, take a look at how perky and clueless Katie Couric perpetuates the GOP myth about Abramoff giving money to Democrats with Howard Dean yesterday. And when challenged on it, says, “we’ll obviously have to look into that.”
Second, take a look at how Chris Matthews tells Los Angeles mayor Antonio Villaraigosa that to him, Latinos should be natural Republicans. And he also carried more water for DeLay again. What does DeLay have on him?
From the chutzpah department, Tim Russert, who sat on the fact that he was involved in the Valerie Plame outing effort for months, is accepting a $50,000 honorarium to speak on media ethics.
And for your CNN files, note that in an effort to have their quota of an in-house right wing operative on every show, CNN hired Bill “abort every black baby”, gambling addict Bennett to replace Bob Novak, after hiring far right flame-thrower Glenn Beck earlier in the month.
