They Hate You

It's long been a mystery to me why journalists internalize right wing criticisms of them and ignore left wing ones. As an example, about every time I go and give some good panel in front of a crowd containing journalist types I get the standard "do you think bloggers are going to replace reporters?" question. Only the Pajamline wankers and their fellow travelers believe that shit. But for some reason that's what journalists hear - that bloggers are going to revolutionize reporting! Take their jobs! Report the GOOD NEWS from Iraq!

Reporters really need to adjust their criticism filters. Stoller explains that the Right hates you for not being the propagandists they want you to be.
