The media moved with stunning symmetry this week is seeking any and every means of tearing down the Republican National Convention, and particularly Paul Ryan.

To borrow their favorite metaphor, it was as if someone blew a dog whistle that only the liberal media could hear.

Chris Muir takes note:

Worry not, Dear Journolistas,

You still have your youthful snark, irrelevant wit, what the f@#k kick ass attitudes, and epistemic closures;

and you still can suckle at the informational bosom of Mother Media Matters, and call it journalism.

How did I miss this. Did The Daily Caller intend it?

By “it,” I mean the significance of the fact that the Journolist emails about Trig Palin were posted today. In my post about the emails, I gave no note to the date.

Question:

How many of the Journolists who object to the release of their e-mails regarding the 2008 presidential campaign will spend the next several days gloating over the publication by WikiLeaks of over 90,000 classified military documents regarding the war in Afghanistan?

Ezra Klein, proprietor of the Journolist, the day after Election Day, 2008:

There was hardly a specter lurking in the American subconscious that [Barack Hussein Obama] did not call forth.
