More evidence that the right wing media is thoroughly corrupted

November 19, 2008 | By | Reply More

Consider this implied admission, that the National Review “spent the last eight years holding their tongue, taking it easy on Bush, averting their eyes from failures, and deliberately backing power over truth.”   Compare this talk with the November 2006 admission by Rush Limbaugh, that “I no longer am going to have to carry the water for people who I don’t think deserve having their water carried.”

These guys know full well what they are doing, and it’s not journalism.  It’s advocacy.  To praise something that THEY think should be criticized or even scorned is corrupt and despicable.

The right wing media has certainly earned the recent criticism of Chuck Hagel:

“You know, I wish Rush Limbaugh and others like that would run for office,” a sarcastic Hagel continued. “They have so much to contribute and so much leadership and they have an answer for everything. And they would be elected overwhelmingly. [The truth is] they try to rip everyone down and make fools of everybody but they don’t have any answers.”
