I Didn't Know! I Mean, I Knew, but I Didn't Know... Y'know?

Greenwald delivers a solid left hook into the jaws of those who perpetuate the myth of the "liberal media." Money quote (emphasis Greenwald):
[A] single unapologetic Bush critic appears on the TV -- Keith Olbermann -- and this rarest of occurrence suddenly leads to controversy over whether the "respectability" of television news can survive while allowing a single "liberal" voice to be heard. The New Republic's Isaac Chotiner just wrote that he's been watching MSNBC "for the novelty of seeing outspoken liberals on television." What rational person can sustain the "Liberal Media" myth when seeing real liberals on the TV is a "novelty"?
More to come.
