The MSM's Strength is its Growing Diversity of Opinion

Evan Thomas, then with Newsweek, in July of 2004: “There’s one other base here, the media. Let’s talk a little media bias here. The media, I think, wants Kerry to win and I think they’re going to portray Kerry and Edwards I’m talking about the establishment media, not Fox. They’re going to portray Kerry and Edwards as being young and dynamic and optimistic and there’s going to be this glow about them, collective glow, the two of them, that’s going to be worth maybe 15 points.”

Bill Keller of the New York Times, yesterday: “If the 2012 election were held in the newsrooms of America and pitted Sarah Palin against Barack Obama, I doubt Palin would get 10 percent of the vote.”

I know this is all shocking stuff, but I figured you as a reader could take it.

Update: Top MSM journalist Jim Treacher concurs: “Sorry, everybody, but after watching this astonishing video, I can come to no other conclusion. The evidence is irrefutable. We can’t afford to put somebody this dumb in the White House:”
