The media truly disgusts me in their duplicity. They bend over backwards to "out" a Republican's thesis to "expose" his "radical" views, and at the same time, do everything in their power to bury a prominent Democrat's thesis that contains "moderate" statements like:
"... the Constitution allows for many things, but what it does not allow is the most revealing. The so-called Founders did not allow for economic freedom. While political freedom is supposedly a cornerstone of the document, the distribution of wealth is not even mentioned. While many believed that the new Constitution gave them liberty, it instead fitted them with the shackles of hypocrisy."
You'll have to click on over to find out whose thesis this excerpt is from. (Keeping in mind that excerpts are all we have.)
The Washington Post cannot go bankrupt fast enough for me.
Disclosure: The only source for the citation above is this blog post right here, which claims that Time's Joe Klein is behind the leak. Nothing further has come of it, so I can only assume that there's nothing to this quote.
My point about the media's lack of curiosity still stands, of course.
