Late Night: It Takes A Village

By: Thursday January 2, 2014 8:00 pm

One of the most infuriating sideshows of the holiday week(s) was a column by even-the-liberal Ruth Marcus of the WaPoo, which said, in the requisite 700 words such hacks are allotted, “Edward Snowden is a big, fat, poopyhead.”  No, really, that’s what her argument boiled down to.

The Murdoch phone-hacking scandal is billed as British tabloids run amok, and the US media seems fixed on the “Gosh, I’m glad that could never happen here” storyline. Sadly, the phone-hacking label is a misstatement — that’s the symptom, but the problem is deeper. Behind the phone-hacking, however, are the revelations of the incestuous nature of politicians and journalists in the world of British politics and media.

And that, my friends, is a well-accepted part of the DC world. See “Russert, Tim” or “Mitchell, Andrea (Mrs Alan Greenspan)” or “White House Correspondents Dinner” or . . .

You get the idea. I just wish the Media Villagers did.
