Check out my response to this self-serving crap.

Let me stipulate: The news business attracts liberals. I work in a building where those of us who will vote for President Bush probably could fit in the paper's two elevators. New York Times writer John Tierney informally polled political journalists last month and found that journalists outside the Beltway preferred Sen. John Kerry to Bush 3 to 1, but 12 to 1 inside the Beltway. The informal poll was in keeping, Tierney wrote, with surveys that find "more than 80 percent of the Beltway press corps votes Democratic."

Every day this workforce nonetheless goes out in the world, talks to sources, reads documents, attends meetings and talks to people going about their daily business just to get the whole story. They learn layers of a story, find facts that surprise them, and then write about what they learn.

trust the media! everyone else lies!

Yes, according to McCain Feingold these are the only ones to trust during the election, certainly not the NRA. It is only their liberaleliteness (now just one word) that allows them to stipulate something so inane as "news attracts liberals".... It should be "news attracts frustrated fiction writers."

You should e-mail her, I got a hot dismissive reply once from her after I called her on something. Good fun.

I emailed her a link. I like poking people with pointy sticks.
