Rod Dreher patiently explains:
My editorial board colleague Ruben Navarrette, who is Latino, returned from the UNITY conference of minority journalists appalled by the naked partisanship his 5,000 fellow minority journalists displayed in the way they treated John Kerry, versus the way they treated President Bush. And he wrote a staff editorial about it. Here’s the first sentence: “Anyone who has ever harbored suspicions that there’s such a thing as a liberal media need only to have been in Washington last week to observe how thousands of minority journalists treated the two headliners to their conference: President George Bush and Democratic presidential nominee John Kerry.”
What’s ironic is that these idiot journalists seriously believe the President is conservative. People don’t realize that most journalists aren’t very smart or well-educated, and the affirmative action babies are sub the low par. They’re ignorant too – I once spoke with an editor at a major newspaper, who is responsible for covering tax-related issues, and he had no idea that the state’s revenue court judges were employees of the state’s revenue agency despite the fact that they had been so for more than 25 years.
