  •  The reason they didn't compare Ayers to Liddy. (2+ / 0-)

    Sadly, I'm wondering if this crap from RS...
    ...and other right-wing media outlets trying to dig up examples of "left-wing violence" for so-called "balance" is intentional

    The same search for "balance" led them to avoid comparing Gordon Liddy to Bill Ayers.

    Imagine that McCain actually beieved that the media was as Liberal as the Repubs always whine. Wouldn't he have anticipated that they'd look for skeletons in his own closet? Wouldn't they have found a skel named Gordon Liddy?

    In terms of nonrepentence and proximity to the respective candidate, Liddy comes across as a lot worse. Even if intentionality was a wash, the Liberal media would have been able to say that McCain's position is that because Liddy was busted before those plots of his of a terroristic nature could be carried out, that somehow makes him a better person.

    They didn't make such an analysis because telling the truth wouldn't be balanced.

    It's quite clear that the only "rule of law" these people care about is one that says you can't lie about your sex life. -Digby
