Media Matters, the Soros-funded so-called media watchdog on the left, is especially good at spit-take inducing analysis. Today is a good example.
They complain about a CNN panel last night on the Brown-Coakley election, calling it biased. Here’s their take on the panel, made up of Paul Begala, Alex Castellanos, Erick Erickson, Dana Bash, John Avlon and Gloria Borger:
That’s two conservatives (Castellanos and Erickson), an independent who used to be a speechwriter for Rudy Giuliani (Avlon), two journalists (Bash and Borger), and one liberal (Begala).
First of all, Bash and Borger may be “journalists” but anyone who has ever watched them over the years know there’s not a dime’s worth of difference between them and Begala. Second, if Media Matters is so upset about a former Giuliani speech writer being included on a panel, where’s their outrage at the likes of George Stephanopoulos and Chris Matthews, two Democratic operatives who are not just periodic guests on panels but hosts of their own shows?
