Researching a piece for Pajamas on Bill Moyers and came across this gem from that Democratic hack.Â So delicious was it that I had to post it right away, especially given my most recent post on the Obama/MSNBC “machine”:
The press is also hobbled by the intimidation from ideological bullies in the propaganda wing of the Republican Party who hector, demonize, and lie about journalists who ask hard questions of this regime.
So, Bill, how do such actions “hobble” them?
And, um, what do you have to say about the Obama folks demonizing their political adversaries?Â Guess it’s fair play when the Democrats do it, but hectoring and demonizing when the Republicans do it.
And given that “journalists” like you seem only to find problems on the right side of our ideological spectrum, what’s wrong with asking hard questions of the media? Or, do you believe, only the media should be allowed to ask tough questions? I mean, Bill, you earn your keep off the taxpayer’s dime. Don’t media watchdogs have the right to question you?
Moyers wrote this during the Bush Adminsitration which he calls a “regime.” An interesting betrayal of his extreme partisan bias.
