MSM Spontaneous Combustion

Thursday, February 16, 2006  |  posted by Hugh Hewitt

Mark Tapscott is applying Jay Rosen’s media rollback theory to the MSM meltdown over Shotgungate.

I thought Jay’s theory depended upon the Buish Adminsitration orchestrating the rollback. What we have seen this week is the MSM, led by the White House press corps, spraying itself with shotgun blasts of hysteria and whining. It isn’t rollback so much as spontaneous combustion.

Rosen’s take is here.

The upset within the press corps is as amusing as it is amazing. Cafferty sputtering about the “f-word network” and Gregory hyperventilating on camera are just two of many snapshots of a once privileged elite realzing that the public that is watching judges them carnival barkers, not intellectuals; clowns, not judges of important events.
