The Press

While the plural of “anecdote” *isn’t* “data”


...here are a couple:

First, Instapundit gets an email:

“Off the record, every suspicion you have about MSM being in the tank for O is true.  We have a team of 4 people going thru dumpsters in Alaska and 4 in arizona.  Not a single one looking into Acorn, Ayers or Freddiemae.  Editor refuses to publish anything that would jeopardize election for O, and betting you dollars to donuts same is true at NYT, others.  People cheer when CNN or NBC run another Palin-mocking but raising any reasonable inquiry into Obama is derided or flat out ignored.  The fix is in, and its working.”
Now, via Slublog:
“It’s unbelievable here.  I’ve been through a few election cycles and have gotten pretty used to the open sneering every time a Republican candidate appears on the television, but this year is unlike anything I’ve ever seen.

“Anchors were openly cheering when the news came out that Sarah Palin’s daughter was pregnant.  Some of the comments were so over-the-top childish and nasty that I couldn’t believe what I was hearing.  They're obsessed with her.  They hate her even more than they hated Bush.  And they all talk openly about how “stupid” and “unqualified” she is...

“...The average person doesn't understand how obnoxiously left wing the average local newsroom staffer is.  The nightly newscasts they’re watching every night are being put together by producers who have nothing but disdain for the people watching.

“The irony is that these people are for the most part, some of the most ignorant, unimpressive individuals that you'll ever meet.  They know next to nothing.  They have no expertise in any area...

“ But they do think they’re both smarter than and superior to you.  Especially those of you who live in rural areas.”
