OMG: Washington Post's Spin On Brown's Arrival In DC Is More Blatant Than Daily Kos'

Is there any distinction anymore between "straight" news and blogging?

If there's not -- and there doesn't appear to be -- can we have an end to these punk-bitches' assertions of superiority?

Yes, this is a straight news story. Supposedly. Front-page.

Scott Brown left the truck back in Massachusetts.

At 9:30 on Thursday morning, the Republican state senator arrived by US Airways shuttle at Reagan National Airport, though he rode a GMC-driving everyman image and a wave of Tea Party-stoked, establishment-financed frustration into the U.S. Senate seat of Jack and Teddy Kennedy. Looking fresh and fit, he stepped out of Gate 43 for his crash-course introduction to official Washington.

Tea-Party-stoked, establishment-financed? How about Tea Party stoked, Tea Party financed? You think "the establishment" gives its contributions in average lumps of $77?

What the hell is this? First real paragraph, right out of the gate: Hypocrite. Liar. Poser. Wannabe populist beholden to a shadowy "establishment."

Good God All Mighty, do they have no shame left?

This is the kind of thing I'd expect in a bitchy Style section story, not a news story on the front page.

Exactly. But while blogs have been endeavoring to become a bit more professional and credible, these wannabes have been trying to be bloggers, and not even bloggers as they are now, but bloggers as they were back in 2002.

And they're not even good at it. It's all this kind of crap:
