As evidence grows that the keynote speaker at the Democratic National Convention may have been practicing law in Massachusetts—the state she seeks to represent in the U.S. Senate—without proper legal authorization, the description of the matter in the mainstream media, to the extent that it is mentioned at all, is that “the conservative blogosphere” is making the accusation. This ritual drives me to distraction, as readers of Ethics Alarms know. But if conservatives want to be given more respect when they uncover a legitimate story that the biased media will try to ignore or bury, they have to stop indulging themselves in utter garbage like this.
It would be fun to quote from this completely pointless exposure of an Obama supporter who happens to be, and I am being kind here, an ignorant moron. But that would be compounding the offense. I heard Sean Hannity today using the statements of this utterly stupid woman to defend Mitt Romney’s 47% gaffe. If anything close to 47% of America is like this cretin, we ought to just pack it in. Characterizing Obama voters by plastering this sad case across the web is offensive and unfair, and insulting to whatever audience it is supposed to persuade. So there are idiots who support Obama. I personally know idiots who support Romney, Hillary, Rick Santorum, Donald Duck and worse. What does that prove? Why is that newsworthy? How does that explicate or illuminate anything?
It doesn’t. And when the conservative media wastes its credibility and sullies its integrity with stunts like this, it only makes it harder for Americans to trust it when it ought to be trusted.
I’m warning you guys, as an advisor and occasional admirer.
