A couple of good posts by Meryl Yourish on how the media is finally coming around. A little.

Detractors of the UN (including myself) have long known that it descends into self-parody far too often, and on important matters. One of the most egregious examples has been the UN’s Human Rights Council that is populated, and sometimes chaired, by representatives of countries with the worst human records. Meryl notes that the Washington Post is even panning it now.

Also, the Associated Press has finally come to the conclusion that many of us already arrived at; Hamas isn’t going to be moderating anytime soon. This is not news to us, but it is news that the news thinks it’s news.

We can only hope there’s a trend emerging.
