Better Than Ezra: The JournoList Rides Again

Doug Ross spots the “The Democrat-Media Complex’s ‘Hostage’ Meme:”

• Huffington Post: How Extremists Have Taken America Hostage

• News-Star: Sen. Mary Landrieu: Republicans in the House “holding the U.S. economy hostage”

• Los Angeles Times: Government: Trading the debt ceiling for another hostage

• The Nation: Economic Hostage-Takers Have Infiltrated the House GOP Caucus

• Tehran Times: Paul Krugman: ‘Republicans have, in effect, taken America hostage’

• The Hill: Sen. John Kerry: GOP is “prepared to hold the nation’s entire economy hostage”

• Bloomberg: Jonathan Alter: “Republicans want to hold the system hostage”
