Conservative columnist belittles the idea of a liberal media

Blog ››› ››› ERIC BOEHLERT

In her weekend column, Kathleen Parker bemoans Dittoheads and the "non-journalists who have been demonizing the media for the past 20 years or so and who blame the current news crisis on bias."

Writes Parker:

There is surely room for media criticism, and a few bad actors in recent years have badly frayed public trust. And, yes, some newspapers are more liberal than their readership and do a lousy job of concealing it. But the greater truth is that newspaper reporters, editors and institutions are responsible for the boots-on-the-ground grub work that produces the news stories and performs the government watchdog role so crucial to a democratic republic.
