The MSM Fights Back

THE MSM FIGHTS BACK….Via Matt Yglesias, this Q&A with Newsweek’s Rod Nordland is genuinely entertaining. My favorite bit:

Hopatcong, NJ: Do you, Masland and Dickey mean “F—ing Murderers” when you say “insurgents” and “fighters” in your STUPIDITY? I’ve grown sick and tired of you “politically incorrect” reporters. Why don’t you have the gumption to call a spade a spade?

Rod Nordland: OK, you’re an idiot. How’s that?

The whole thing seemed like it might be a joke, but I clicked the link and it’s for real. Be sure to read it.
