all the rumors that are fit to print

jill at brilliant at breakfast bemoans the fact that now even the washpost considers gossip to be news:

this is how it works, folks. wingnuts put something "out there" -- obama is a muslim spy. hillary is fucking her female arab assistant. john edwards had an affair. it doesn't have to be true; it doesn't even have to have anything to it other than what's pulled out of wingnut ass. all republicans have to do is put something "out there" and out-and-out lies become just an "alternative view" deserving of equal time to facts. because as stephen colbert said, facts have a liberal bias.

meanwhile, rudy giuliani does have ties to terrorists by having a government that harbored khalid sheikh muhammed as a business client, and it's nowhere to be found in either the washington post or the new york times.

this is the kind of campaign journalism we're going to get until november 2008: republicans good. democrats bad. rumors true. facts false.

Have you heard about Mitt Romney pimping out Guliani in drag on the streets of DC?

And Rudy's biggest customer was McCain, who paid Rudy to tie him up and call him a velly velly bad boy in a bad asian accent while whipping his ass with a rolled up issue of the Washington post?
