Reticence of Mainstream Media Becomes a Story Itself
Did the MSM drop the ball on John Edwards?
Wingnuts are doing a dance of joy today. After years of flogging stories that amounted to nothing but paranoid right wing fantasy, they finally got something right. I think the Infinite Monkey Theorem best describes their track record on the truth.
The idea that the mainstream media fell down on the job because it didn't cover a story which broke in the supermarket tabloids is absurd. When you break it down this story really isn't relevant and certainly not worthy of the shitstorm that covered the networks yesterday and today.
We have to push back hard against media navel-gazing on this. They were correct to blow off the whiners of the right who've been complaining for weeks that this story was being ignored. The cartoon world that conservatives live in already permeates to too great of an extent into reality. We don't need the media taking them any more seriously than they already do.
