Over at Salon (sitting through a brief commercial is required), Joe Conason is excerpting his smarter, more helpful effort on much of the same subject as Al Frankens recent flame-bait. Heres Matthew Yglesiass remarks for lefty media critics:
[C]omplaining that your political opponents have a propaganda machine is like complaining that the jockey youre riding against has a horse.
Of course. But the righties have gotten pretty far spurning such advice, and I dont see this changing so long as lefties continue to pay service to notions of journalistic objectivity.
