“The fix is in…”

Speaking of that little oxymoron we call MSM objectivity… Instapundit’s Glenn Reynolds recently recieved a revealing email from a media insider:

A READER AT A MAJOR NEWSROOM EMAILS: “Off the record, every suspicion you have about MSM being in the tank for O is true. We have a team of 4 people going thru dumpsters in Alaska and 4 in arizona. Not a single one looking into Acorn, Ayers or Freddiemae. Editor refuses to publish anything that would jeopardize election for O, and betting you dollars to donuts same is true at NYT, others. People cheer when CNN or NBC run another Palin-mocking but raising any reasonable inquiry into obama is derided or flat out ignored. The fix is in, and its working.” I asked permission to reprint without attribution and it was granted.

The Anchoress adds:

I have a couple friends who work in the MSM, too, and one of them tells me the newsroom is (exact words) “unbelievably cavalier” about any complaints viewers register about their reports, what they ignore, their bias or the way they edit Republicans vs. the way the treat Dems. “Cavalier” as in the fix is in and they don’t even have to pretend to care what half the country thinks or wants.

These are the same media outlets who routinely pooh-pooh the blogs for lacking balance in their reporting. Here’s a newsflash… we ARE the balance. We do the work the MSM refuses to do and we don’t have to resort to dumpster diving in Chicago to do it.  All of the scandalous info we need regarding the Chosen One and his Dem pals is usually just a Google away. Or an insider email away.  Or maybe even a LexisNexis away for those of us who have the funds. But RARELY is a trip to the dumpster warranted… no need to get those pajamas dirty.
