Podcast for 20 Feb 06
Posted by: Dale Franks on Monday, February 20, 2006

Once again, it's time for the podcast. In this podcast, Jon, McQ and I discuss the political partisanship, media bias, Jimmy Carter's foreign policy genius, Iran's nuclear program, and much more.

I think you certainly can point to specific reporters, people like Erick Alterman let’s say, who, can’t do a news story without poking in their sort of ideological hobby horse in the middle of it somewhere, so within individuals I think you can point it out.
Uh-huh. But here on QandO, Dale sits high above on his hobby horse with the luxury of not having to present both sides of the story. So it’s easy to take the high road.
But until you give both sides of the story, your criticism of reporters, like your hobbyhorse, carries little weight.

Uh-huh. But here on QandO, Dale sits high above on his hobby horse with the luxury of not having to present both sides of the story. So it’s easy to take the high road.

Uh, what makes you think I’m a reporter? I give my opinions about stuff. Practically everything I do is opinion-based, and I don’t pretend otherwise. I don’t think any one is coming here for objective news. We give our opinions on current affairs, we don’t offer—nor do we pretend to offer—an objective account of the day’s events.

Moreover, as I also said in the podcast, I’m not sure we weren’t better served when the press made no pretensions to being able to provide unbiased coverage, and individual media outlets had predictable political positions that they took no pains to hide. Just as we make no pains to hide our own biases, by boasting at the top of the page, "Free Markets, Free People". So, your implication that I make some sort of shibboleth out of "objectivity" is flatly contradicted by what I actually said in the podcast.

So, your "point" is both extraordinarily idiotic, and intellectually dishonest.
