  •  Ben Smith is okay (0+ / 0-)

    He was the NY Daily News blogger on NYC politics before he went to Politico. He did a decent job. I don't see him as an idealogue, regardless of who he works for.

    •  You must not remember the primaries and his (5+ / 0-)

      big William Ayers "scoop." He's the source of Palin's "pallin' around" BS.

      He's somewhat accountable because he actually responds to his critics, but he's after page hits instead of cold hard truth, so don't be fooled.

    •  He makes crap up. (0+ / 0-)

      He fabricates 'news' and peddles hysteria.

      I suspect he fabricates material he claims as quotes, too. I'm still trying to get absolute proof of that, and I will post a diary specifically about it, if I can get a reply from the person in question.

      Ideology is not the point here. If I thought one of the front pagers here was doing this, I'd be in their face, too. From what I've seen at Politico, specifically his postings, he's just another Mike Barnicle, Jayson Blair or Jason Leopold.  

      Try to make it real, compared to what.
