Propagandists covering for Liars

I knew it was coming. But it is still jarring to see the extent to which the agenda journalists of the MSM will cover for the Democratic Party, even when it means abandoning a very good story certain to attract readers and serve the public's interest.

Perhaps the sad story of MSM's collapse can be condensed in a case study surrounding this race by the poobahs at Columbia School of Journalism. Dean Nick Lemann wants his students to learn power skills in order to reinvigorate the profession. Perhaps he should preface those classes with an admonishment: First, get the facts out and get them straight.

Journalists face a terrible delimma -- tell the truth or help liberal politicians. They can't do both. And if they do the former, they won't long be employed as journalists.
