In our present pundit state, conservatives can literally lie on the pages of the Washington Post and never be called to task for it. Matter of fact---they'll be asked to join the round table discussion on ABC's Sunday talk show. I call that pitiful.
One thing our media never acknowledges is that conservative pundits play under a total separate set of rules than liberal pundits. Specifically, conservative pundits are generally indistinguishable from political operatives. They aren't just writing interesting columns about things they're interested in, they're advancing an agenda, which includes electing Republicans, often with little or no regard for truth. If they can get away with it, and they frequently do, they'll just make stuff up and lie.
