Death Throes Of The Exempt Media, Vol. MCCLXII

Today's example of the Exempt Media meltdown comes from the Washington Post in a hack-job report on blogger Bill Roggio. I'd write about it, but Hugh Hewitt, Paul Mirengoff, and Bill himself have done an excellent job in tearing Jonathan Finer and Doug Struck into tiny shreds.

I have to express some disappointment with the Post in this instance. While I know they write from a liberal viewpoint, I've usually considered them more fair and professional than the New York Times and the Los Angeles Times, although in both cases that can fairly be called damnation by faint praise. In this case and in their coverage of the John Roberts nomination especially, they have gotten carried away by their prejudices and need to correct their reporting if they want to maintain anhy kind of credibility. Right now, they remind me of the proverbial little girl with the curl smack in the middle of her forehead. When they're good, they're very, very good ... but when they're bad, they're horrid.

UPDATE: Mark Tapscott talks about how the Post can walk this back and cover bloggers more honestly in the future.
