"John Amato at Crooks and Liars says: "The Washington Post continues to become more and more a mouthpiece for the GOP by hiring a rightwing blogger." I don't get it. One conservative blogger? It's not like The Post doesn't have a left-leaning blogger, or liberal columnists. Is the New York Times a GOP mouthpiece because it employs David Brooks and John Tierney? If people don't like what Domenech has to say, don't click on him. It's not like you can say "cancel my subscription!" since the Web site is free."
I'd just like to know who the actual liberal blogger is? That's all I'm asking because nobody really seems to know either. Let's talk about it Sunday.<snark> Obviously, it's more than just Ben's hiring that makes them a mouthpiece. Couple that with the way John Harris treated Dan Froomkin and James Brady's appalling behaviour regarding Deborah Howell and you get a bit more of the total picture.
