Media Shills For Alito
This subversion of democracy is brought to you by the American corporate news media - working working hard to keep the world a fun, profitable playground for its millionaire reporters:
Some say "Some say..."I saw Gloria Borger on CBS News yesterday, and it was some of the most shameless propaganda I've seen in days.
Summary: Despite the fact that Supreme Court nominee Samuel A. Alito Jr.'s wife's emotional response did not come during the Democrats' questioning, but during Sen. Lindsey Graham's characterization of the Democrats' questioning, numerous media outlets pounced on the incident to raise the question of whether Democrats on the committee "took this a step too far."
BORGER: Well, I think what happened is that yesterday the Democrats started hearing from all of their constituency groups, which were really up for a fight, saying that they hadn't pushed hard enough on abortion, that they hadn't pushed hard enough on Judge Alito's character, and so today you saw the Democrats really ratcheting up their questioning. It's a very fine line, very difficult, but some say they went over the line.Well, Gloria, some say your relentless propaganda on behalf of the Republican Party is a microcosm of the rotting, fetid industry which rewards you so generously for telling the public what to think.
