MSM: Behold the double standard...

HughHewitt.com: "When American corporations screw up, the American media whales on them day after day, week after week, and year after year. Think the Exxon Valdez, Union Carbide and Bhopal, The Ford Pinto, Enron.

Now an American media company has committed a huge and grave error leading to widespread unrest and the loss of life. Will the Washington Post Company, Newsweek's owner, suffer similar fallout as those examples listed above? Probably not. The club will protect one of its own."

The similarities to the University should be obvious: Plenty of blame for those outside of the institution, little self-criticism or real debate inside.

The press limits it's own freedom with the blinders of idealogy. That's why new media has arrived.
