It can never hurt to rehash and reprise the theme of hypocrisy in the MSM, especially some of our friends at the Denver Post. It almost looks like the Ritter campaign has contracted out its public relations services. Joshua has it spot on:
In the Denver Post’s case, they don’t llike whistleblowers who leak to Republican campaigns. Of course, they’re more than happy to report on the reaction of the Perlmutter campaign to a story planted by that campaign in the Post itself.
The Post ridicules Beauprez’s claim that his source is courageous, even as it campaigns for federal shield laws for journalists. It states that Beauprez’s source leaked for partisan political purposes, even as it defends the New York Times for publishing information that’s likely to get Americans killed, in pursuit of its own political agenda.
Yes, the Post wants Beauprez to lose that bad. Unfortunately, for too many days during this campaign, it has looked like the Beauprez campaign was aiding and abetting the Post‘s efforts. Don’t count on the final results looking like the latest polls, though.
