There's been a lot of pussyfooting around the Helen Thomas Affair. We've been chided on Twitter for calling members of the legacy media to task for not "taking sides." That is between the individual journalist and his conscience, but there's a lot of willful misunderstanding going on. Chris Muir (above) captures the essence of our own argument with his usual laconic wit. Our point is that in giving Thomas a pass by not saying anything about her anti-Semitism, members of the legacy media may be inadvertently enabling Israel's mortal enemies' public relations war.
Update: "Inadvertently?" asks Adam in the comments to our crosspost at Riehl World View. Our reply:
Good point, Adam. Still, the specific White House Correspondent I happened to have a private online conversation with was convincingly pro-Israel as a private citizen but naively bought into the Columbia Journalism School ideal of an unbiased media. Unbiased media? Give me a break. Who'd want that, even if it were humanly possible? Just acknowledge your biases and get on with it.
