MrBrink on the media obsession with Anthony Weiner:
“When Newt makes the media rounds, nobody is asking him about his lack of loyalty to his ex-wives or what he was thinking. Nobody asks David Vitter if he's still banging hookers. Nobody is asking Joe Scarborough about that dead girl in his Florida office. On and on. Nothing sticks to loyal conservatives, and when it does, it's because they are found to be gay, and that's only because conservatives are predisposed to hate gay people.
They get to go about their media lives like nothing ever happened, influencing the power structure in America.
Anthony Weiner has been asked over and over, not about Clarence Thomas, or any number of issues, but about whether or not he's guilty of flirting with women. There's a mound of evidence incriminating right wing operatives on his right, (Supreme Court justices!)...and some harmless Twitpics on his left.
The corporate media plays America like a drum, and there is no such loyalty on the left(I'm talking to you, Ed Schultz) to veer away from the corporate media's obsessive defamation of liberal views.”
As Rachel Maddow says, IOKIYAR » it’s only okay if you’re a Republican
