…that dumping Lou Dobbs indicated CNN was starting to take their middle initial seriously. As it turns out: Nope! They were just looking for someone even more objectionable. (One wonders why they didn’t just keep Glenn Beck, really.)
I don’t really see what further comment I could add. Erickson is vile. He’s certainly as vile as Limbaugh or Beck. He makes much of the rest of the conservative blagoweb look measured and reasonable, and that’s no mean feat.
Yet, somehow, the fact that people say “fuck” on Daily Kos is constantly held up as evidence that liberal bloggers are hateful and meanspirited and unserious — and I have no doubt that we’ll also continue to see right-wing bloggers and Fox News blasting CNN for being an exemplar of the “liberal media.”
