The quotable Evan Thomas, then and now:
- Evan Thomas, 2007, “…our job is to bash the President…”
- Evan Thomas, 2009, “…he’s sort of a God.”
And to quote from Howard Fineman, Thomas’s fellow Newsweek journalist, in early 2005:
A political party is dying before our eyes — and I don’t mean the Democrats. I’m talking about the “mainstream media,” which is being destroyed by the opposition (or worse, the casual disdain) of George Bush’s Republican Party; by competition from other news outlets (led by the internet and Fox’s canny Roger Ailes); and by its own fraying journalistic standards.
