Rich praise

By

Editor & Publisher, the leftist publiucation serving the leftist press, predictably loves leftist Frank Rich's forthcoming book. Matt May is not impressed and blogs what he wrote to E&P:

"Your 'review' of the new Frank Rich offering is a prime example of why the mainstream news media is circling the drain at a high rate of speed. It is highly ironic that the Bush administration stands accused by you clowns of an alternative reality. It is you — the media — who live in a fantasy world of your own making. [....]

"To say that this administration has 'quasi—totalitarian control of the news media' is perhaps the most ill—conceived phrase ever written in the history of print. If that is truly the belief of your organization and your profession, you are in an area so deep beyond your understanding it is tempting to pity you."

There's much more.
