E. J. Dionne, Jr. - The Intellect of a Dust Mite

In an opinion piece today for the Washington Post titled "Enough right-wing propaganda," the esteemed intellect of E. J. Dionne, Jr. comes up with this gem:
The mainstream media and the Obama administration must stop cowering before a right wing that has persistently forced its propaganda to be accepted as news by convincing traditional journalists that "fairness" requires treating extremist rants as "one side of the story." And there can be no more shilly-shallying about the fact that racial backlash politics is becoming an important component of the campaign against President Obama and against progressives in this year's election.
What planet does this guy live on? Does he not have the slightest idea about the existence of the JournoList expose, where liberal media members conspired to destroy Sarah Palin with innuendo and falsehoods, like here, here and here?

To have a discussion about right-wing "propaganda" without also providing the context of the damning revelations from the JournoList emails smacks of partisan hackery to the highest degree. Why this guy has a job in ANY news organization speaks volumes as to the state of the lamestream media.

It is no longer in question that the Washington Post and the rest of the LSM are in its death throes. As Sarah said in a Facebook post today, it's a "journey into the media's heart of darkness."
