Since there are others who've been at this blogging thing a heck of a lot longer than me, I've compiled a list of links to some of the best in the 'sphere, who've done the "layers of fact-checking" necessary to out the drive-by's on their PDS-driven complicity:
The Anchoress: Side-by-Side Gibson Questions and More
Newsbusters: Gibson Didn't Pound Edwards in 2004; Asked Him if GOP Attacks Made Him Mad
Newsbusters: ABC News Edited Out Key Parts of Sarah Palin Interview
Ed Morrissey: Did Gibson have a Double Standard for Palin?
Surely these haughty dinosaur media types understand that they're actually working against their own interests, right? After all, they're supposed to be so much more intelligent than the rest of us, so much more "nuanced" and "effete." Do they really want to underestimate the American electorate again, the same Silent Majority that swept Ronald Reagan into office twice, even without new media like talk radio, cable and Internet blogs?
Or is it simply that, like Obama, they're so invested in their self-image of superiority they've lost all grip on reality? Sounds like a conundrum for the gifted Dr. Helen to analyze.
