It's certainly not a surprise. Another example is that a conservative attempted to question the responsibility of Democrats on the downgrading of American credit ratings. Representative Dick Durbin D-Ill. was asked a question by William Kelly, a freelance reporter for various conservative media outlets, was attacked by other Chicago MS media type Jim Anderson, News Director for the Illinois Radio Network. Anderson also was quoted by Kelly on his blog as telling Kelly: “You’re not allowed to ask questions during a press conference,” bleated Anderson. “We are going to have you thrown out by the cops,” he said, running interference for Durbin. In addition to doing news for the Illinois Radio Network, Anderson apparently moonlights as an unpaid member of Dick Durbin’s staff.
As a former journalist, I resent vociferously, the anti-first-Amendment" hypocrisy of Anderson. Turns out, Kelly wrote that Anderson moon-lights for Durbin as an unpaid adviser. The hypocrisy is obvious but Anderson is a turn-coat on honest journalism, which seems to be standard-fair for the media these days when it comes to their defense of socialistic liberal policies promoted by Obama and Democrats.
It is a sad day for America that the former "Watchdogs" of government have become the "Lapdogs" of liberal politicians and there is no longer free press, but open season by Anderson-like journalists who have been pissing on the Constitution for years and America is paying the price of an a dishonest media.
