You Stay Classy MSM
Posted by Mike on July 12, 2008
All decent human beings are saddened by Tony Snow’s death. Which brings me to the AP and the New York Slimes. On the very day Tony Snow passes away, the AP projected their own failures on to the brilliant and decent man:
With a quick-from-the-lip repartee, broadcaster’s good looks and a relentlessly bright outlook — if not always a command of the facts — he became a popular figure around the country to the delight of his White House bosses.
The New York Slimes obit did the same thing.
Incorrectly assuming for the purposes of discussion that the MSM swipes are accurate, is it really appropriate supposedly objective media to attack a decent man on the day he dies? The fact of the matter is that Tony Snow routinely put the lazy and biased American media in their place with accurate facts that contradicted their own unresearched assumptions and left-leaning biases. The media never could stand up to Snow while he was alive. Maybe that is why they are so classless now.

UPDATE: Newsbusters has more on the classless AP.
UPDATE 2: Patterico hits the nail on the head.
