More Liberal Media

The NYT managed to put out a 26 paragraph story on the rise and fall of Ashleigh Banfield without ever mentioning noted jackass, Michael Weiner (a.k.a. Michael Savage), and his asinine “mind-slut” comments. The NYT did attribute the fall to a number of factors other than her saying “It [War on Iraq coverage] wasn’t journalism [because] getting access does not mean you’re getting the story. It just means you’re getting one more arm or leg of the story.” I think Savage is relevant to the Banfield story because it demonstrates the regard Banfield was held in by top management–long before she made statements critical of the network.
