Progress Marches

John Podhoretz at Contentions calls it "beyond all possibility of parody"...

Atlanta Progressive News fires reporter for trying to be objective

The editor, explaining why the reporter was canned...“because he held on to the notion that there was an objective reality that could be reported objectively, despite the fact that that was not our editorial policy at Atlanta Progressive News.”

Proudly making editorial policy indistinguishable from news policy...not exactly a novel practice, but something not usually admitted so forthrightly.

When you're right, you're right...so spin it all. It's the virtuous thing to do. The self-regard is breathtaking.
