hell, by that standard i'm non-partisan
Atrios of Eschaton, certainly not someone whose politics are normally in line with mine, I would say is right about his handling by David Kuhn for CBS.

But I just have one question, regarding this phrase:
Media Matters for America is a non-partisan "501(c)(3) not-for-profit progressive research and information center dedicated to comprehensively monitoring, analyzing, and correcting conservative misinformation in the U.S. media."

Eh? How is something a "non-partisan" group dedicated to "correcting conservative misinformation"? Wouldn't that make you necessarily partisan? If I started a group dedicated to weeding socalists out of the media, wouldn't that make me necessarily biased against socalists? I don't even have a problem with MMfA overall, I disagree with them but they certainly can do what they want. But insisting that they are a non-partisan group when their mission statement is to combat conservativism seems sortof silly to me.

Perhaps there's some "nuance" I'm missing in there. Eschaton link via Rather Biased. Oh, and can someone explain to me what the hell an "Eschaton" is? I've been wondering about that forever, but I'm too lazy to do any research and figger it out for myself.


howdy, thanks for stopping by. what you're looking at is the intermittent ramblings of an iraqi vet, college student, goth-poseur, comic book reading, cheesy horror loving, punk listening, right-leaning, tech-obsessed, poorly typing, proudly self-proclaimed geek. occasionally, probably due to these odd combinations, i like to think i have some interesting things to say; this is where they wind up.

"I think we ought to read only the kind of books that wound and stab us...We need the books that affect us deeply, like the death of someone we loved more than ourselves, like being banished into forests far from everyone, like a suicide. A book must be the axe for the frozen sea inside of us.
