Former CBSNews Writer/Producer: That's It For Me, I Can No Longer Claim The Media Has Good Motives For Its "Errors"

As she ended several men's devotion to heterosexuality (I assume; I mean, gotta be, right?), Andrea Mitchell now ends one man's willingness to defend the media.

Iím tired. Truly. Iíve grown weary of trying to defend the indefensible and explain the inexplicable. For years, people have stomped their feet and pounded their fists and snorted ďLiberal media bias!Ē and Iíve always tut-tutted and shooshed them and said, ďNo, no. Calm down. They meant well. It was just a misunderstanding. A mistake. These things happen."

...

But now?

Forget it. Iím done. You deserve what theyíre saying about you. Itís earned. You have worked long and hard to merit the suspicion, acrimony, mistrust and revulsion that the media-buying public increasingly heaps upon you. You have successfully eroded any confidence, dispelled any trust, and driven your audience into the arms of the Internet and the blogosphere, where biases are affirmed and like-minded people can tell each other what they hold to be true, since nobody believes in objective reality any more. You have done a superlative job of diminishing what was once a great profession and undermining one of the vital underpinnings of democracy, a free press.

Via The Anchoress.
