The Fake Objectivity of the Modern Press


Over at RedState, my friend Leon Wolf writes your must read of the day:

One gets the feeling that if Cecile Richards were caught on tape literally herding Jews into a gas chamber, Blake Hounshell would object to any conservative saying, “Boy, she sure is a lot like Josef Mengele.”

The piece’s starting point is actually a tweet from me. Blake Hounshell, who is one of the “reporters” who mocked Romney on foreign policy only to see Romney’s predictions come true, has moved over to the Politico as an editor of some sorts. And he is deploying fake objectivity to avoid what Planned Parenthood is doing.

Leon makes some great points. Go read the whole thing.
