How the left argues

Thomas Lifson
Soros-funded Media Matters operates in essence a briefing organization, supplying left wing journalists and opinion leaders with talking points to discredit conservative media, especially talk show hosts, in a press release today. It was mass emailed even to me this morning. Media Matters debunks in advance a program they haven't seen, a one hour global warming TV show by Glenn Beck, of Headline News and talk radio.

Rather than dispute any of the substantive issues likely to be on the show, Media Matters supplies ammunition to argue that the views expressed on the show are from a discredited source. This document perfectly expresses the dominant attitude of the left, which sees all conservatives as evil, not to be listened to, for fear of the satanic appeal of Rush Limbaugh and company. Read the press release here.
