The Liberal Media

Eric Alterman

The MSM’s addiction to false equivalence continues to distort our political debate.

Ever notice that anytime anyone tells the truth in the contest for the Republican nomination, a new scandal erupts?

While our tech-obsessed media fondled their iPhones, it was left to a courageous monologist to discover the real legacy of Apple's founder.

From the Times to NPR, the so-called liberal media has a phobia of liberals.

The New York Times columnist faults President Obama for failing to do… exactly what he did.

Is this a politician who, when faced with recalcitrant opposition, would rather switch than fight?

Why do the media believe that they must behave like idiots in order to be “fair” to the Republicans and their idiotic ideas?

Just three years ago, President Obama was an unapologetic Keynesian. Now, he's jumped on the deficit hysteria bandwagon.
