Blaming the Messenger: Fair Enough When the Story is Wrong

Bret Stephens reminds his media colleagues that terrorists feed on false narratives, bad stories and lousy reporting driven by ideological nonsense.

It's a fair cop.

it's worth wondering why a media that treats nearly every word uttered by the U.S., British or Israeli governments as inherently suspect has proved so consistently credulous when it comes to every dubious or defamatory claim made against those governments. Or, for that matter, why the media has been so intent on magnifying genuine scandals (like Abu Ghraib) to the point that they become the moral equivalent of 9/11.

And the useful idiots of the Liberal Media continue on their treasonous task of aiding our enemies and getting more Liberals elected.

But in all likelihood, now that the target of their hatred will be out of office and their selected Lib will be in, the Treasonous Lib Media will likely tone down their enemy aiding. See, because they want Obama to succeed where they didn’t want Bush to. Libs hate Bush more than they hate terrorists.
