Tim Blair nails the left for charging the right with inventing stories

Bob Fertik, president of Democrats.com, in the New York Times:

“The way we perceive it,” he said, “is that right-wing bloggers are able to invent stories, get them out on Drudge, get them on Rush Limbaugh, get them on Fox, and pretty soon that spills over into the mainstream media. We, the progressives, we don’t have that kind of network to work with.”

Poor progressives. All they have is Lancet reports, Ayad Allawi killing people, the menace of depleted uranium, plastic turkeys, oil pipelines in Afghanistan, Jewish media conspiracies, another Stalingrad in Baghdad, Bush’s dumbness, harsh Afghan winters, the massive influence of Jeff Gannon, and looted Iraqi museums. They never get to invent any stories at all.

Heh heh… And these made-up stories didn’t have to work through Drudge, Limbaugh and Fox first; they hit the mainstream media right from the start. The liberal media gave many of these stories days or even weeks of air time. And let’s not forget the “fake but accurate” Bush AWOL charges either. Kitty Kelley got 3 days on the Today show for her gossip book about the Bushes, but when Sinclair Broadcasting wanted to air stories from guys who were in Vietnam with Kerry, they got sued by Democrats.

Sorry, but all this whining about the left not being able to out-dirty-trick the right is just misdirection of the worst kind.
