The press is convinced that conservatives do not like them because of conjured up, imaginary reasons. That couldnt be further from the truth.
This past week, the press gave us yet another example of why conservatives have legitimate reason to hate them.
Monday, one of the best media critics in America, Howard Kurtz, wrote a column at CNN.com about conservatives blaming the liberal media for the nut in California. His column included this:
