The idea that news coverage in Old Media is driven by some conspiracy is considered laughable, but what does it mean that exactly that sort of thing keeps turning up? Townhouse, Journolist, and now Media Matters. I think it’s another sign of the intellectual decay of the Modern American Left that it now needs this sort of crutch to continue to have any cohesion. When such people don’t have that, you get the Occupy Designated Location results. So at least Media Matters is helping keep street crime down.
