Tailgunner Ellen Goodman

Friday, April 7, 2006  |  posted by Hugh Hewitt

Ellen Goodman writes a typically self-serving bit of MSM posturing today, full of the now-commonplace MSM McCarthyite tactic of blasting unnamed conservative bloggers, this time for their treatment of Jill Carroll.

But she doesn’t name anyone in particular, which gives the game away.

Goodman slams a group without the specifics that would allow her audience to judge the reliability of her accusation.

How Tailgunner Joe of her.

There may be bloggers guilty of the sin she describes, but she doesn’t name even one of them.

How MSM.

She also neglects to mention that many of these conservative bloggers did their best to assist in the campaign to free Jill Carroll. While not very much, it was action completely contrary to the spin Goodman puts out.

For easy reference, here’s my post from mid-March:

Jill Carroll

by Hugh Hewitt

The Christian Science Monitor has updates on the campaign to persuade her kidnappers to free Jill Carroll, including a video of the public service announcement running on Iraqi television.

The Committee to Protect Bloggers is urging that all bloggers link to the site and the public service announcement.

If you have not already done so, please do.

Goodman’s dishonesty in her column today reveals that the sin she accuses unnamed bloggers of committing –exploitng Jill Carroll– is exactly what she is doing.

Hypocritical, but not surprising.

UPDATE: RogerLSimon has more.
