IMN Award of the Week

IMN AWARD OF THE WEEK….I know that highlighting idiotic media narratives is Bob Somerby’s beat, not mine, but Howard Fineman’s latest in Newsweek has to be seen to be believed. If I were writing a parody of the genre, I wouldn’t change a word.

And a note to Fineman: please don’t try to make up for this by writing a companion piece about the Republican primary field. It won’t be any better just because you’re taking on people I don’t like.
