Because David Brooks Isn’t Wrong Often Enough

I’ll never understand why Republicans hate the media so much. It’s not like they’re not on the same side:

The Huffington Post has learned that, in a move bound to create controversy, the New York Times is set to announce that Bill Kristol will become a weekly columnist in 2008. Kristol, a prominent neo-conservative who recently departed Time magazine in what was reported as a “mutual” decision, has close ties to the White House and is a well-known proponent of the war in Iraq. Kristol also is a regular contributor to Fox News’ Special Report with Brit Hume.

I have to think that Republican hatred of the “liberal media” is nothing more than an act, like pro wrestling. After all, their continual insistence that the media have a liberal bias is probably the only reason that most Americans have not figured out that the media are owned by people and corporations who have a mutually beneficial, almost symbiotic relationship with the Republican party.
