Best Dissection of the Rotten Job Media Did During the Election

Many excellent points.

My favorite line:

There’s no way to justify systemically misinforming people about the stakes of an election, and then clarifying the consequences after it’s over.

And I would like to underscore how “meh– who cares” the misrepresentation of George W. seemed at the time. President Clinton had gotten things humming along and maybe electing a guy you’d like have a beer with (and was, oh yeah, proud of his anti-intellectualism) didn’t seem like that dangerous an idea. Of course Bushie pulled the time-tested switcheroo — there was nothing “compassionate conservative” about the way he governed. The ultra-low-bar thing, however, is a thousand times bigger dereliction.
