”…The left-leaning paper gave the thumbs-up to…”
—Actual words of Kate Wheeler, anchor, CTV Newsnet, Friday, January 25, 2008.
What’s the official liberal media handbook’s position on penalties for revealing the truth about the liberal media? Is there some sort of “rehab” prescribed? A re-education program? Some sort of media union banishment? Is Wheeler going to be kicked off the liberals’ cocktail circuit? Is this actually a kind of Church of Liberalism blasphemy?
It happened when informing us as to the grand, official presidential candidate endorsations from the liberals’ bible, the New York Times.
Naturally, for her sheer—almost balanced, realistic —honesty; and certainly her audacity, we have awarded her with (the still utterly un-celebrated across the blogosphere) ProudToBeCanadian Quote of the Week Award.
The liberals at the liberals’ newspaper of record chose Hillary Clinton for the Dems with a glowing report:
“By choosing Mrs. Clinton, we are not denying Mr. Obama’s appeal or his gifts … Mr. Obama and Mrs. Clinton would both help restore America’s global image, to which President Bush has done so much grievous harm … The potential upside of a great Obama presidency is enticing, but this country faces huge problems, and will no doubt be facing more that we can’t foresee. The next president needs to start immediately on challenges that will require concrete solutions, resolve, and the ability to make government work. Mrs. Clinton is more qualified, right now, to be president.”
And as if to prove that John McCain is the wrong choice for Republicans, they “endorsed” him on the Republican side. This is how they “endorse a Republican”:
Senator John McCain of Arizona is the only Republican who promises to end the George Bush style of governing from and on behalf of a small, angry fringe.
Golly. That’s lovely.
You should read their thoughts about the other Republicans. It’s all really charming.
New shift: new tone.
Kate Wheeler’s shift ended, and anchor Jennifer Ward swoops in. Same story, different take. She omits the words “left-leaning”, and frames the story as an entirely Obama/Clinton story—referring not once to the Republicans. All is back to normal.
