Our Broken MSM, Cont'd.
Everywhere, from the esteemed pundits appearing on the op-ed pages of the WaPo and NY Times, to the TV gab fests, there is abundant evidence of the outright laziness and cynicism of the mainstream media. For example, Glenn Greenwald takes apart the WaPo "national political reporter" Shailagh Murray for her idiotic non-response to questioners on the Scootin' Scooter affair. She seems bored with the fact that there's so much "flap" about the convicted felon, ignoring the evidence of a continuing obstruction of justice by Dumbya himself. It's all "YAAWN" to Ms. Murray, who condescendingly implies that the "department store managers and orthodontists" shouldn't concern themselves with the government being hijacked and corrupted. Let the Shailagh Murrays of the press inform the unwashed masses: "Nothing to see here, move along."
