They're Just The Same!!!1!

[Newsweek's Lisa] Miller, naturally sees an equivalence between left and right anger-mongers -- ignoring, as all conventional-wisdom purveyors do, the fact that the thirteen highest-rated cable news shows are all on Fox and the fact that the nine most influential radio talkers are right-wing.

From a great post by Steve M. on No More Mister Nice Blog about that most tiresome of false equivalences, how eager the Villagers are to state it as gospel, and why, therefore, we DFHs are expected to just STFU.
