Carol Platt Liebau: What a Double Standard!

What a Double Standard!

Can anyone imagine the uproar it would elicit if the Republicans had chosen a minister to give their weekly radio address, as the Democrats did this week?

Think of the rending of garments and gnashing of teeth that would have ensued among the press if men of the cloth were conscripted into similar political service by Republicans. We'd be hearing about how it signaled the advent of a theocracy.

But apparently, when the Dems do it, it's quite all right, as far as the press goes. Perhaps that's either because the members of the MSM suspect the Dems don't really mean it, or else they figure it's to help the Dems increase their political hold on power . . . and therefore, it's quite all right.

I think it goes back to the media playbook regarding politics: if it damages Republicans, play up the story as much as possible. If it hurts Democrats, don't say a thing. Unfortunately, this type of behavior from the media is not the least bit surprising. I expect we'll see more of the same from the MSM over the next two years as they do everything they can to help Democrats broaden their hold on power.
