Silly Benen

Steven Benen asks: “If six media figures joining Democratic campaigns is proof that reporters are liberal, are seven loyal Bushies joining news outlets proof that major media outlets are conservative?”

Of course not! The loyal Bushies joining major media outlets is proof that the media is liberal — so liberal, in fact, that even the hard-core liberals who control the media feel so guilty about it that they need to hire hack propagandists from the Bush administration to try to counteract their own liberal liberalishness. Similarly, CNN hiring Steve Hayes also proves that the media is liberal.
