“Inside Media Matters: Sources, memos reveal erratic behavior, close coordination with White House and news organizations” [UPDATED]
It’s like the uber Journolist / Townhouse / JuiceBox Mafia listserv for “progressive” news cycle setting and baldface propaganda — this time, going all the way up to the most transparent White House evah!
And the thing is? There isn’t a conservative alive who is in the least bit shocked by any of this.
– Well, except maybe Rick Moran. Who is probably busy penning an angry retort to the Daily Caller in which he scolds them for their investigative Visigothery, supplying several historical examples of how the Bushies, eg., or Nixon, also tried to use friendly news sources to support their Administrations’ positions, marking this particular “scoop” as an hysterical non-story being hyped by unhelpful purist crazies on the right who continue to believe, erroneously (and naively, and with a foul populist foaming), that the Obama Administration is somehow more nefarious and radical than your ordinary, typical Democrat administration.
Probably because Obama’s black. Though that’s just a guess.
