Why oh why can't we have a better press corps?
Howard Kurtz - Worlds Apart: The Great Hannity-Olbermann Divide: On Fox News last week, Sean Hannity said he was tempted to ask Barack Obama: "Where did you buy your cocaine, how much cocaine? How much cocaine did you use? How often did you use it? When did you stop?" On the same Monday night, Keith Olbermann said on MSNBC that John McCain had a responsibility "to say 'enough' to Republican smears without end" and not be "party to a campaign that devolves into hatred and prejudice and divisiveness."
Are these guys watching the same presidential race, or even living in the same country?... As high-profile hosts adored by fans and derided by critics, Hannity and Olbermann provide a case study in the power of ideological punditry...
I call false equivalence. Saying "stop sliming" is not sliming. Sliming is sliming.
