David Adesnik has nice bit on a recent exchange between a liberal mainstream reporter and a liberal opinion writer (who will almost certainly join the mainstream media establishment some day soon).
This little anecdote illustrates perfectly the left's dilemma with how they engage the media. They want to be able to cry bias, just like conservatives do. The problem is, they agree with most mainstream media opinion. The conservative argument is: You liberal media elites present a view of the world which directly opposes ours. The liberal argument is: You media elites refuse to go far enough in exposing the lies of the right. That's a tough sell.
