Political Jihad

That's what Tom Brokaw said about the blogger vigilante effort to get Dan Rather yesterday in a panel with Ken Auletta. I agree. Bloggers aren't anything but partisan so they only see things in those terms. One side the right-wing bloggers only operate on shoring up assumptions they hold dear: liberal media bias and the plot against middle America. How Bush became a symbol for that class is beyond me. After the debate, "Let them eat cake," rings true.

As Dan Rather said, "Not asking tougher questions was the mistake leading up to the war," not asking them in the first place as his critics seem to wish for. I don't know what kind of journalism those fools want. Lap dogs?
