Right Wing Nuthouse: A New Blog Discovery

Different blogs are worth reading for different reasons. Some are fine aggregators of links to information, some are interesting in their own right; and some are a combination of the two. Right Wing Nut House is one of those combination blogs. The blogger, Rick Moran, has been around the news media a long time and offers real insight, well-written. Here's an excerpt from his latest post, "The Press And The Electric Kool-Aid Acid Test:"

Tom Wolfe, who chronicled Ken Kesey’s riotous, hallucenigenic trip across country in a painted school bus in The Electric Kool-Aid Acid Test wrote in that American classic “It’s easy to have faith as long as it goes along with what you already know.”

I can’t think of a better explanation for the cognitive dissonance shown by the mainstream press since “Crapperquiddick” hit the fan this past weekend. Because make no mistake: The very same people in the press who took CBS to task last fall for their “fake but accurate” defense of the Bush TANG memos have elevated that apologia so that it’s now considered a legitimate way to report the news.
It seems to me that anyone who can come up with a word like Crapperquiddick deserves our attention. Read the whole thing; you'll end up blogrolling this man.
