What Passes for "Journalism"

Check out this post at Powerline. It's no wonder that the folks at the Minneapolis Star-Tribune don't much like its authors -- John Hinderaker, Scott Johnson or Paul Mirengoff -- as they document and comment on the paper's steady diet of agenda journalism, mistakes and distortions.

But even so, isn't it a bit much -- even for the Star-Tribune -- to lift a comment off an AOL news site where Powerline can be accessed and try to present it as the work of the site's three bloggers?

Egregious incompetence or worse? That's the problem . . . with the Star-Tribune, you can never tell.
