Declare War on Establishment Media

By Rick Pearcey • March 15, 2010, 08:11 AM

Quin Hillyer writes at American Spectator:

Andy McCarthy is right. He writes . . . to complain about a hit job in the L.A. Times against Ginni Thomas, long a conservative activist in her own right, who just happens to be the wife of Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas.

Ginni Thomas is just launching a new organization dedicated to propounding First Principles, educating younger people about our nation's founding and its founding values, and mobilizing on behalf of those values in the public sphere. More power to her. But the L.A. Times treats it as a major conflict for . . . her husband. Read Andy's whole blog post to see his superb explanation for why the L.A. Times piece is outrageous.

Meanwhile, I'll go farther. I say that the establishment media is, as a collective entity, intellectually and ethically corrupt. Not just liberal, but intellectually dishonest, often knowingly, to a stupendous degree.

"Back to Ginni Thomas," Hillyer concludes. "Here's hoping that her new venture succeeds beyond even her own wildest imaginings. And here's hoping that when it does, one of the results is that it bedevils the establishment media at every turn."
