Make it stop

NYT media reporter David Carr recapitulates Halperin, with yet another long tongue bath for guess who?

But if you believe that his huge traffic numbers are a byproduct of an ideologically motivated readership, consider that 15 percent of the traffic at WashingtonPost.com, which is not exactly a hotbed of Tea Party foment, comes from The Drudge Report.

I'm not sure what's worse, the innumeracy or the clinging to the notion that The WaPo is still the same paper it was when Woodward and Bernstein were cub reporters.

Or that in order to ensure balance, Carr got quotes from some clown from the Weekly Standard, a co-founder of the rePubOLITICO, and Andrew Breitbart.
