The Right Conclusion For The Wrong Reason

Lowell Feld over at Raising Dough, ... er, "Raising Kaine," offer his moronic "10 Reason Why the Mainstream Media Sucks."

Now, don't get me wrong: on the basic premise --- "the Mainstream Media Sucks" --- I agree.

Lowell offers ten reasons. Some ("Their reporters are lazy") are even agreeable.

But those which seem most important amount to little more than "their insufficiently Leftist." The best example is the notion that those who reject --- or even question --- the concept of human-caused "global warming" aren't entitled to any attention. But Lowell even rejects as "overcompensating" on those rare occasions when reporters even attempt to give a fair shake to Conservatives.

The single best reason why the so-called "mainstream" media sucks is one that seems not even to have occurred to Lowell: they make pretensions to fairness, when in fact, they are unapologetic propaganda voices for the Democrat Party. Lowell's chief complaint appears to be that they haven't assumed such a role for the moonbat contingent, i.e., Lowell and the children at Raising Dough, ... er, "Raising Kaine."
