Chutzpah

At some point, if we had a responsible media in this country, we’d simply stop publishing the sort of right wing denial of reality that sustains most of the current GOP politically. But alas, people like Jennifer Rubin are still being published. Like this latest piece that just went up on RCP. It starts off with the big one, and goes downhill from there.

John McCain believes he is in an existential war. America is engaged in a death struggle against Islamic terrorists.

But he is also fighting for his life: against a media establishment dedicated to his political destruction.

How stupid would someone really have to be to believe this? Does Jennifer Rubin actually believe this? And why do media outlets keep publishing blatant propaganda that leaves their readers dumber for having seen it?
