Andrew Sullivan complained that as of 7:27 p.m. on April 16, 2009 (approximately three hours after the interrogation memos were released by DOJ), none of DrudgeReport, Instapundit, Michelle Malkin or Pajamas Media had a post on the topic:
No mention of the torture memos appears right now on the Drudge Report (which provides news of a prank at Dominos pizza), Instapundit (which mentions the new DVD for the Lord of The Rings trilogy), Pajamas Media, or Michelle Malkin. They are reacting to the evidence of war crimes committed by the president of the United States the way they did at the time the crimes were committed.
I have this to report. As of this moment in time, approximately 24 hours after Barack Obama yucked it up with Hugo Chavez, one of the worst abusers of press and individual freedom, agent of Iran and Hezbollah, supplier of support to FARC narco-terrorists, jailer of opposition political opponents, closer of opposition televisions stations, user of street thugs to beat the opposition silly, soon to be President-For-Life:
Andrew Sullivan’s blog still does not have a post on the Obama-Chavez LoveFest, although he does have a post titled “It hurts when I pee.”Others who are maintaining radio silence include Matthew Yglesias, anyone else at Think Progress, Ezra Klein, Glenn Greenwald, FireDogLake, Talk Left, Crooks and Liars, DailyKos, and I’m sure there are more, but I can’t check everyone (note, Oliver Willis and Comments from Left Field do mention it).
Does not mentioning something constitute agreement or reflect one’s position or if only a few hours have passed, mean the matter never will be addressed? Of course not, after all Obama says he likes to know what he is talking about before he speaks.
But if it’s good enough for Andrew Sullivan to play that game, it’s good enough for me.
