Got It In One

The Dumb One on Ann Coulter and the Observer.

... the real insight into the Liberal worldview comes courtesy of well-respected MSM figure Eric Alterman (and you are reminded that the Observer must have felt his insights were sufficiently important to reproduce them in this article):

There's a kind of daisy chain in the media that's allowed her to reach this level, with Hillary Clinton responding to her comments about 9/11 widows. Hillary Clinton shouldn't have to wipe that stuff off her shoes. The gatekeeper function of the media has entirely disappeared.

So, there you have it. The role of the MSM is to protect Liberal royalty from having to deal with impudent commoners. So what’s the attraction of this 'blogosphere' again ?
