I’m going to be extremely charitable to Nick Gillespie and n0t suggest that he’s any one of those three, though. Because while his bitterness is palpable, he and I do have similar opinions on how nice it would be if we hacked back the government a bit. Or a lot. Anyway, Nick’s aforementioned bitterness starts off by noting that the most vituperative members of the antiwar movement (the knaves) clammed up pretty much the moment the Democrats took power**, then really starts in on a nice, representative sample of all those journalists out there who strained gnats under Bush, and swallow camels under Obama. Nick then concludes:
This isn’t ultimately about ideological hypocrisy – of liberals changing their tune once their guy is in office – but something much more basic and much more disturbing. It reveals that for all their crowing about being watchdogs of all that is good and decent in society, when push comes to shove, too many journalists are ready and willing handmaidens to power – including the power to kill.
