"The blog has also taught me that serious journalism still has a very large place amid the babbling noises of the Internet."

"I have but one regret, and it is that I was unable to persuade the traditional journalists who control the credentialing for Congress that I was as independent as they feel they are, and that journalism can take unusual new forms and still be journalism."

Writes Lyle Denniston, ending his stint on SCOTUSblog.

SCOTUSblog is 100 times better than so-called journalists Nina Totenberg and Linda Greenhouse. Both are liberal hacks.

Since he qualifies his statement, "as independent as they feel they are", I wonder if he perceives those "traditional journalists" as the wholly owned subsidiaries of the Democratic Party they actually are.

If you are not progressive, you are not "independent."

They knew that. It's the competition they did not like. (The writer knows that too. Why is he pulling his punch?)

Are the MSM really any different from TASS? Do they not speak with one voice and spout propaganda that serves their own agenda?
