The Los Angeles Times’ Tim Rutten: The Wile E. Coyote of MSM

Email Email Print

Yesterday, the Los Angeles Times’ media rumbler, Tim Rutten, boldly threw himself under The New Republic’s bus in an effort to draw attention away from the magazine’s ongoing collapse of credibility.

Confederate Yankee provides the reasons why Tim should never be mistaken for a journalist in a partial fisking –who has time to completely fisk Tim?– that should leave a mark but won’t because of Tim’s regard for himself. 

Rutten will be defending Mary Mapes and Dan Rather, the Fairness Doctrine, and the New Republic right through the day they shut off the lights at the incredibly shrinking LAT.  Tim’s an agenda journalist whose target –whose roadrunner– are critics of the MSM.  He’s got a nice gig, and he is doing his very best to defend it, even if it means defending the clowns at The New Republic who abetted a smear of the troops and now cowardly hunker down and hope it will go away.
