Lonely are the brave: Glenn Reynolds gets a letter

Someone wrote the following email to Glenn Reynolds today: “Off the record, every suspicion you have about MSM being in the tank for O is true. We have a team of 4 people going thru dumpsters in Alaska and 4 in arizona. Not a single one looking into Acorn, Ayers or Freddiemae. Editor refuses to publish anything that would jeopardize election for O, and betting you dollars to donuts same is true at NYT, others. People cheer when CNN or NBC run another Palin-mocking but raising any reasonable inquiry into obama is derided or flat out ignored. The fix is in, and its working.”

I don’t know who this is, but it’s easy to speculate on where he or she works.  There are only a few places in this contracting media market, other than the cited New York Times, that can afford to send sizable staff to Arizona and Alaska. I could hazard a guess of my own, but wouldn’t it be wonderful if the person who wrote this email would come out of the closet and testify?  Of course, in so doing, we would probably be asking her or him to give up their job, not a particularly fair requirement in current economic climate.  Still, it would be a great act of courage and, dare I say it, patriotism for that person to own the content of the email and sign it, not that there is anything suprising in that content.  In fact its very banality is what gives it force. The level of bias and de facto censorship it imputes is extreme, almost Soviet.  But we knew that, didn’t we?

Feel free to put your own guesses here.  I am curious to see if they track with mine.
