7. Yes, I think many 'journalists' will do anything to gain access and
keep it. I know nothing about those two, but I would have thought that the editors at The Nation would have checked it out before publishing it. Unless they too wanted to please the WH. I never thought they would sink this low. The NYT and CNN yes, but they are beholden to Corporate America. The Nation depends on its readers, most of whom are not going to be happy about this. Unless they receive funding from elsewhere.

The irony is that they were pointing fingers at tea-biggers and the Koch brothers, while doing exactly what those entities do themselves.

Part of it probably is hiring people who are so partisan they allow their own emotions to influence their work. Real journalists can set aside emotion and publish facts no matter how harmful they may be to their political party. I think these two are the left's equivalent of the right's Beck followers. They have no place in a magazine like The Nation.
