Hugh Hewitt Sets The Record Straight
Mark Halperin was upset by my conclusion that he is a very liberal MSMer. So I offered him the space below to make his case as to why I –or you– cannot come to the conclusion that I have come to and retain. Arguing for a sort of “sovereign immunity” from opinions being formed about his ideology and agenda is at first baffling and then humorous. Smart and pleasant, but the condescension in his offense taking is startling. This is the MSM disease, one associated with all aristocracies –that it will not endure criticism or questioning, is easily offended, and quick to cast aspersions on opponents.
For the record, Mark Halperin e-mailed me and asked if he could be a guest. Not only did I agree, I thought his position worthy of a three hour interview and the offer of a return visit. His anger with me comes from my opinion that he is very liberal, and as I explained below, I don’t think it is easy to come to any other conclusion with the evidence at hand.
I report, and interview. You decide.
