Well, after all, they are journalists.
And as such, they’ve passed a rigorous series of training courses in activities such as lying, altering audio and video, using MS Word to simulate 1960s typewriters, hatred for guns,etc., in order to gain the high (as in pot smoking) status of teleprompter reader.
We must bow to their superior (non) intellect.
Have you ever seen the MSM make a 'mistake' that made someone on the left look silly or bad? Somehow journalists get around to checking things out when a dem might be embarrassed... Look how long they sat on the John Edwards story... a tabloid had to print a picture before they'd run with it. With Republicans they run on the rumor...
