“Gather 400 lefty reporters and academics on one listserv and it turns out you wind up with a strikingly high concentration of bitchiness.”

Too funny — Tucker Carlson’s comments today on the Journolist scandal.  And it really is a scandal.  We all know about press bias, and my wife can attest to the fact that I can be rather obsessive in complaining about it.  Seeing  every story being shoe-horned into the conservative-bad, liberal-good narrative is incredibly tiresome. 

But what the Daily Caller has shown us is something altogether different and worse.  It shows people who consider themselves to be journalists attempting to coordinate the presentation of information to achieve partisan ends.  That is propaganda, not journalism.
