SO I WAS QUOTED IN THIS NPR STORY ON ANDREW BREITBART, which was pretty good, really. But this story — which on my station ran right afterward — really underscores Breitbart’s point about the media trying to control the narrative. It’s all about a crumbling coastal building in California and the threat of coastal erosion from “climate change.” If you listen closely, the story doesn’t quite say that the seas are rising and that’s why that building is in trouble, but it certainly gives that impression. And it never admits that there are any questions about the whole climate-change debate. Narrative, indeed.

UPDATE: Reader Thomas Lyttle writes: “Listened to the NPR Breitbart report while going to dinner. Was surprised to hear the reporter describe you as the ‘conservative’ blogger Instapundit. It doesn’t use that term in the written version you linked to, but the as-broadcast version sure did. Check it out.” Yeah, I know. Sigh. I fight it, but basically to a lot of media folks if you’re not in the Obama tank with them you must be a conservative.

ANOTHER UPDATE: Susanna Cornett writes:

Glenn – Just send those reporters who don’t get the difference between “libertarian” and “conservative” to me. Because…

I’m a conservative. Conservatives are friends of mine. And you’re no conservative. Heh.

Indeed.
