Journalists Can Be Pretty Darned Ignorant

Thursday, April 26, 2007
So everybody's talking about the outrageous stuff that David Broder said today about Harry Reid. But I just want to add some additional evidence of the mainstream media's gross incompetence.

I'm killing time before the Democratic Presidential Debate watching the talking heads, and Tom Brokaw just made the slanderous statement that Lloyd Bentsen never knew John Kennedy. Many of you may remember that Bentsen humiliated Dan Quayle in the 1988 Vice Presidential debate, telling Quayle (who was claiming he was as experienced as JFK) that "Your no Jack Kennedy." According to his "research team" Brokaw says that they can't find any evidence that Bentsen and Kennedy knew each other.

Hmm. Wikipedia says that Bentsen was in the U.S. House between 1949 and 1955. John Kennedy was in the House between 1947 and 1953. Gee, how in the world would 2 junior congressmen from the same party during overlapping periods ever know each other?

No wonder they believe everything Karl Rove tells them.
