Our Liberal Media

For various reasons I was reminded of the Imus situation. Let's have a flashback of the Howies Fineman and Kurtz. First Fineman:

Fineman: It's a different time Imus. It's diferent than it was even a few years ago, politically. You know, in the environment politically it's changed. And some of the stuff you used to do you just can't do anymore.

Imus: no you can't

Fineman: You just can't because the times have changed. I mean just looking specifically at the Africa-American situation. I mean, hello, Barack obama has gotten twice the number of contributors of anybody else in the race. I mean, you know, things have changed. Some of the kind of humor you used to do you just can't do anymore. So that's just the way it is.

And Kurtz:

Imus's sexist homophobic, and politically incorrect routines echo what many journalists joke about in private.
