Political Hackery Masquerading as "News"

The Weekly Standard identifies this week what it calls "three interesting data points on media double standards."

Of course, this likewise demonstrates that at least portions of Virginia's moonbatosphere suffer from the same tunnel-vision in the interests of pursuing their far-Left political agenda.

For example, J.C. Wilmore (The Richmonder) has whole tags for "Right Wing Terrorism" and "Right Wing Violence."  Now, never mind that he attributes to the "Right Wing" occurrences with no provable connection to the "Right Wing" --- things like a shooting into an Obama campaign headquarters, the bombing of a Democrat Texas state senator's office, and the Gabby Giffords shooting --- declaring that "The far right wing constitutes an ongoing threat to the United States...."

Since he has no such tags for "Left Wing Terrorism" and "Left Wing Violence," one can only presume that there are some kinds of terrorism and violence that he supports.  And no mention of mob violence perpetrated by labor unions in Wisconsin and Michigan.  Don't expect to see a report on perpetrators of union violence.  Mr. Wilmore offers 'nary a word about that violence in February and March 2011, or in December 2012, respectively.  In Wisconsin, the tag is for "Wisconsin Protests" (emphasis added).

But what's a little disingenuous euphemism among friends?

Hypocrisy, thy name is Liberal.
