The Americans who complain about “negative” news are the ideological cousins of those who shoot at CNN crews. The news is the news, good or bad, and those who resent being informed of it are pitiful. More Americans are well-informed about current sports and auto-racing statistics, I sometimes think, than anything else.
Bonus leftist blind-to-the-threat points: this comes in the context of a review of “A Mighty Heart,” the new film about the murder of Daniel Pearl by jihadist animals. Exit question: Does this stern bromide about those who resent the truth apply to the nutroots too or, per Eric Boehlert, does the avenue run one-way only?
