Legacy Media: Chewed Up and Spit Out

Thanks to Tim Blair for pointing out the obvious bias in an entertaining (and therefore unforgettable) way.

Thanks to Glenn Reynolds for publicizing it (among others) twice.

Thanks to Jeff Jarvis (no member of the Vast Right-Wing Conspiracy) for noting The Washington Post is simply adding case studies on what is bad journalism.

Thanks to Roger Simon for providing, as always, perspective:

This article would seem to be another exercise in conscious/unconscious self-destruction by the mainstream media. Jeff Jarvis has an interesting post in which he sees it as evidence for the proposal for "open sourcing" in reporting (i. e. you can see the reporters raw notes online and evaluate them). I'm all for that, but I think there's something deeper at play here...

Apologies for the Tease and Run, but read the whole thing -- it's not that long.

Definitely read Tim Blair's post above. Soon to become a blogosphere classic.
