Compare And Contrast

Robert Novak spews a cynical column that’s pretty darned near fact-free, and nothing will happen to him because of it. (Other than maybe getting a Pulitzer.)

Paul Krugman makes a good-faith cite of an item in an Enron story by Jason Leopold, an item that Leopold couldn’t vouch for 100% (although to be honest it was a lot more credible than what Judith Miller had been writing on Iraq on behalf of her neocon buddies for over a decade) and Krugman and Salon are made to grovel while Leopold loses his job.

What was that about a “liberal” media?
