Logging into my Comcast e-mail this morning, I found the headline on the Comcast home page: "Russert hazed for remark." Some might think Luke Russert's still involved in college fraternity activities? It was great to see AP pick up on our item on Luke's boo-boo yesterday, but "hazing" is a little strong:
Almost immediately, Russert took a hazing in the Web world. Wrote Tim Graham of the conservative Media Research Center on the NewsBusters blog: "Out of the mouths of young, untrained reporters come the unspoken beliefs of the liberal media."
The MRC believes in exposing and correcting the liberal media, but have never actually paddled a member of the media elite or subjected them to any other frat-style hazing activity.
