If there were ever a time for an arrogant, drunken, lazy, ethically challenged and totally fictitious reporter to comment on the state of journalism, it is now!

Geneva Overholser's reading material

Geneva Overholser has responded to feedback generated by her Poynter column on "liberal media bias" (I commented on it here):

Some reporting on this issue
Posted by Geneva Overholser 6/15/2004 8:20:32 PM

"The Republican Noise Machine: Right-Wing Media and How It Corrupts Democracy" by David Brock (yes, I know: no need to send me the "documented liar" characterizations) has some interesting reporting on this issue. I recommend it highly.


Yes! David Brock! Truly, one of my heroes. But come on, Gen. That "documented liar" bit is a little unfair, don't you think? (Don't worry, Ms. Overholser, Pulitzer-winning ombudsperson; I won't send these links to you.)

Considering that Gen's column was about the lack of media skepticism regarding WMD intelligence during the run-up to the Iraqi war, I think her point is unassailable:

To the Professional Journalist, a defector from the right wing such as Brock carries infinitely more credibility than a handful of Saddam's former top scientists who defected to the West.

No argument here.
