Open double standard weakens media’s voice

By Weston Hicks | 1 hour ago

Conservatives are learning how to ignore the media’s double standard more and more. The Washington DC media establishment has recently given us a nice example of it.

“Governing” magazine, a liberal DC outfit claiming to be the most authoritative publication in the field of local and state politics, wrote a hit piece against a group doing advocacy journalism from a conservative perspective.

Meanwhile, fellow DC press characters PBS ran a story about a conference of “leading (read: liberal) media players” how advocacy journalism isn’t such a bad thing and we should all get comfortable with it.

The progressive cultural oligarchs now deal in open hypocrisy, a fact they sometimes flaunt. While they are busy overindulging they are making it hard for people of good will to remain liberal, something likely to be reflected on election day.
