The mad dash to demonize Greenwald
I would post this at FDL, but it seems inappropriate there.
But TBogg sees us, and categorizes us in with Alex Jones types. But, anyway...
(If you have nothing to hide, why are you worried?)
I have to give the Bogger credit for being the first to call out "advocacy journalism".
In no way is the way that Greenwald is reporting this “straight journalism”. It’s advocacy journalism that just happens to coincide with his pet hobbyhorse.

Of course, Taibbi watches all of this:
Bogg is in a strange position. Taibbi is on his blogroll. GREENWALD is on his blogroll. So, Bogg has to try to discredit folks with "I like him, BUT" statements.
But you have to give Bogg credit. His homespun "advocacy journalism" meme really did make it into the "mainstream". He and his handful of commenters really are a mean, lean meme propagating machine.
