Yesterday at Breitbart's BigJournalism, Jeff Dunetz served up yet another badly premised, nigh unreadable piece on the many outrageous evils of the "progressive media," which on its own is hardly worth mentioning. But there was one passage in Dunetz's sloppy harangue that indicates the high level of unseriousness we're dealing with here:Media Matters goes on to point out that Buchanen worked for three Republican presidents, ran for President as a Republican, and founded The American Conservative. Correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't it the editor's job to make sure that nonsensical garbage like this doesn't get posted? I mean, I know that the Breitbart sites primarily trade on nonsensical garbage, but even brainwashed tea partiers would know that the claim about Buchanen is false.Israel is a favorite target of the progressive mainstream media. For example the New York Times,Washington Post and LA Times are famous for their anti-Israel bias. To mix things up a bit, they can blame the Jews too. Progressive media are famous for their attacks on Jews also. MSNBC commentator Pat Buchanan, for example, is a Holocaust revisionist who opposed did not support the Kagan nomination because it would put too many Jews on the Supreme Court (he also complained that there were too many Jews in the Senate).
