Shut up, he explained

Liberal “journalist” finds evil righwingNaziterroristdeathbeast complaints about Court Media tiresome.

In the last few days, conservatives have become agitated about Mitt Romney’s drop-off in the polls. So did they think the stumble was because of the ill-fated “47 percent” slip of the lip, or the hasty effort to gain a political edge after the death of an American ambassador in Libya, or more problematically, a campaign that can’t seem to stop pratfalling no matter what the news?

Paul Ryan and Mitt Romney on board the campaign plane at Dayton International Airport last week. Republicans have denounced recent unfavorable polls.

No, in their view, the mysterious drop can only be explained by the fact that the mainstream media have their collective liberal thumb on the scale, in terms of coverage and, more oddly, polling.

The mainstream media are frequently indicted suspects when the rink tilts against conservative causes. But it seems worth pulling apart that notion, especially in a landscape where ownership of the megaphone is increasingly up for grabs.

It would indeed seem “worth it”–to a hack propagandist interested in attempting to deny something so self-evidently true in order to protect not only his beloved King, but his own influence. Trouble is, it ain’t even remotely possible for any honest man to do it.

So of course, this clown tries. But frankly, I find it all too tiresome to bother arguing about it. To quote the old joke, it wastes my time and annoys the pig.

Via Ramesh Ponnuru, who says: “The headline, at any rate, is perfect. The trouble is that it’s also compatible with the subheadline ‘But They’re True, and an Indictment of My Colleagues.’ Which may be why the whole debate makes Carr so very tired.” Yep.

    When things come unwound, our press can look forward to the same treatment Julius Streicher received. As far as many of us are concerned, they ave active combatants, and this will be noted once things heat up.

    The press is corrupt, as in rotten. The sooner we treat them as pariahs instead of celebrities, the better.
