Glenn linked something yesterday which really gets at the advantage the legacy media accord to Democrats. When some fringe figure at a Republican rally hurls an angry epithet, prominent Democrats call for party leaders to “differentiate themselves” from the lone nut-bag lest he come to define the party. And folks in the legacy media often pick up on the story, portraying the isolated voice as representative of the GOP.
But, when an angry leftist hoists a mean-spirited sign at a liberal rally, that’s just one angry liberal and not a representative of the party. Heck, if a prominent Democrat says something stupid, well, it’s just not news. And when a liberal columnist uses harsh language to describe Republican, there’s no need for any differentiation–because the Republicans really are that bad.
