Joan Walsh Says She Looks ‘Stupid’ For Defending Weiner – Then Continues to Defend Him
To a liberal media member, politics means never having to say you were wrong. On Tuesday’s “The Ed Show,” Salon’s Joan Walsh said she looked “kind of stupid” for defending Congressman Anthony Weiner (D-N.Y.) last week, then went right on defending him
Brent Bozell reminded readers of his column that the networks piled on 152 stories about Rep. Mark Foley in the story’s first 12 days in the fall of 2006, but they weren’t the only ones with a vast left-wing disparity. Time and Newsweek each devoted cover stories and multiple pages to the Foley scandal. Time put an elephant’s rear end on the cover with the words “What a Mess…Why a tawdry Washington sex scandal may spell the end of the Republican revolution”. Newsweek had a huge picture of Foley (with a small President Bush in front of his face) with the huge headline “Off Message” and the subhead “Foley’s Secret Life: How a Predator’s E-mail Sex Scandal Could Cost Bush Congress.”
Changing of the Liberal Guard on NBC’s Today
Wednesday was Meredith Vieira’s final day as co-host of NBC’s Today. Since joining the broadcast in September 2006, she has brought staunch liberal advocacy to the morning news program, following the model of her predecessor, Katie Couric. News reader Ann Curry will take over as Matt Lauer’s co-host, maintaining the broadcast’s left-leaning perspective.
