The Press

How accountable should we, as liberals, hold the press when they have failed repeatedly to do their jobs.? When their failue is not just a temporary oversight, but a long term problem that has manifest over the past 20 years. How can we continue to defend the press unconditionally? We can't. Digby explains why.

One of the most important catalysts for the emergence of a left online community was the Clinton and Gore character assassination campaigns. We just could not remain quiet anymore --- particularly since the mainstream press seemed to writhe around in the muck with the same pleasure as the GOP operatives who plied them with tabloid trivia. The technology merely gave voice to what millions of us out here in Americaland had been screaming in our minds for years.
