Forbes, please define "liberal"

Blog ››› ››› ERIC BOEHLERT

Forbes magazine, that well know bastion of liberal thinking, just published its list of the The 25 Most Influential Liberals In The U.S. Media. And surprise! At least some of them are actually liberal. (Glenn Greenwald, Ezra Klein, Rachel Maddow, etc.)

But a bulk of the list is made up of Beltway insiders who wouldn't be caught dead at the Netroots Nation. Either that, or the progressive movement in America today is suddenly being represented in the media by the pro-Iraq war Kurt Andersen, the pro-war Andrew Sullivan, the pro-war Christopher Hitchens, the pro-war Thomas Friedman, and the pro-war Fred Hiatt.

And not to mention--according to Forbes--the Clinton/Gore-hating Maureen Dowd and the Clinton/Gore-hating Chris Matthews.

Note to Forbes: stick to what you know. (And it ain't liberalism.)
