Faced with a groundbreaking investigation by investigative journalist and Breitbart editor Peter Schweizer that reveals corrupt self-dealing on both sides of the aisle in Congress, the mainstream media had two options:
Yesterday, Politico chose #1. Today, Huffington Post has joined it, defending the Republican speaker it routinely derides, in order to protect the former Democrat speaker that many of its contributors hope to reinstate.
- Criticize both sides in proportion to their involvement.
- Defend both sides, in order to protect Democrats in power.
Why yes, Huffington Post, just like Politico and Media Matters, did decide to criticize "both sides in proportion to their involvement." Which is what you should do. And which is why those outlets are taken seriously, unlike Big Journalism.
