Media: Liberal, Conservative, or Just Shallow and Stupid?
A columnist for Rupert Murdoch's rag, the NY Post, wrote two opposing columns about Barack Obama which both inadvertently got published.
I buy her explanation that she wrote the more positive one before she actually heard Obama speak then rewrote it based on her new viewpoint, rather than that she rewrote it at the bidding of her ultraconservative masters.
And perhaps I'm putting too much on a NY Post columnist. Her mini-column obviously just takes up space that the salespeople didn't manage to fill with advertising (who the Hell is she, anyway? More prestigious than I, at any rate).
But it certainly serves as a great example of shallow, uninformed, uninquisitive personal opinion reportage that passes as journamalism. I bet she hates those unethical, unprofessional bloggers, too.
Oh, irony, thy name is Andrea Peyser.
