JEFF JARVIS:

The anti-Fox craze also reveals (pardon my standard screed here) an essential snobbiness to the left these days. The left used to be the people’s cause, the Democratic party the people’s party. But with the age of disapproving, PC snips, the left became a culture of snobs. Labor ties aside, they look down upon the mall masses. And that’s why they don’t understand the popularity of Fox and its balls-out opinions. That’s why theirs has become a smaller movement.

Indeed.
