Epistemological Relativism

As Josh Marshall calls it is the notion taught in journalism schools including mine that we must present both sides as if they are two separate realities with equal value and grasp of the truth from the information i.e. facts on the ground. It is never this simple and the job of journalists is to find the truth wherever it is regardless of the messenger. Bush is commandeering the media outlets with this they both do it cliche and it has to stop.

There's two sides alright and usually one is more wrong than the other. This time it's Bush. He did it not the journalists. Don't enable liars. Call them on it. Mark Helperin wants to. Good for him.
