Original message blood boiling to point of incoherence here

Say something bad about Keith and they go bonkers!!!

The following editorial appeared in my paper this morning, from one of the major editors of one of the biggest papers in the NY Metro area.

So Keith Olbermann is back, this time on Current TV, the network cofounded by Al Gore. Olbermann is smart, talented and effective (just ask him), as are many of his counterparts at both ends of the political spectrum who thrive by essentially preaching to their choirs on Fox and MSNBC.

It is the KING of false equivalencies and it really really needs to be rebutted by someone who can write. Newsday is owned by Cablevision, part of a huge media conglomerate that also owns Madison Square Garden and lots of other stuff.

When the facts have a liberal bias, as they clearly do.. How can we combat this lazy "both sides do it" mentality that infects CorpoMedia© from top to bottom? If I could write a coherent sentence I'd craft a LTTE to point out the mess that is in this thinking.. but I end up sounding like the "left wing crazy" (because you are, embrace it!) that a fact-based, angry person always sounds like to ears so thoroughly glommed up by crap thinking.

I need help. (Yes, you do.)

She admits she can't write a simple letter regarding this without sounding like a moonbat, but claims she has all the facts on her side. Nice
