THIS IS RATHER AN OVERSTATEMENT: ” In the world today, there is no truth being told except in the right-wing blogosphere.” It should bother the trad-media that there are so many who feel that way, though, particularly as they’re likely to continue to feel that way regardless of political events over the next few years.
Of course, the “whole picture” doesn’t just include the bad news as well as the worst. Even the presentation of bad news is lazy, inaccurate, and largely useless in making or evaluating policy.
UPDATE: Well, yeah. That’s my point.
