Passing thought on this hump-day morning — the MSM’s sudden interest in conservative opinion

Ever notice that the only time the mainstream media seem to report what Rush Limbaugh and Pat Buchanan say is when it’s something critical of President Bush or his choices?

Normally Limbaugh and Buchanan are the red-headed step-children of the MSM machine, but they question Bush, and they’re all of a sudden as welcome as an ice cream truck in front of Rob Reiner’s house.

There’s a two-for-one example in the USA Today. Even the three major network newscasts, anchored by… oh, I forget who they are now… have mentioned Limbaugh and Buchanan.

Soon, however, this too will end, and the MSM can go back to only mentioning Limbaugh and Buchanan when they say something that can be construed as racist or are accused of doctor shopping.

Note: My first book, “‘Because That’s the Way God Decided to Do It!’ – A conservative father fields confusing questions from his confused kids about a confusing world – Inadequate explanations of politics, parenting, economics, war, technology, and the future of the human race” is now available in paperback or as a downloadable Ebook.
