IT WASN'T INTENDED AS A COMPLIMENT, BUT: Kevin Drum wrote a couple of days ago that
Mainstream reporters, despite their generally liberal temperaments, have an odd sort of contempt for actual liberal politicians, who they widely view as being wimpy, pandering, fence-sitting, poll-driven wonks who are hesitant to really speak their minds and insist on giving lots of boring policy-oriented speeches that don't make good copy.
Don't look at me. I didn't write that. Also plenty of substantive posts from Kevin about terrorist finance and European law, the gender gap in education, and Harvard basketball.

Let's face it: Mainstream reporters have an odd sort of contempt for everyone except themselves.
I don't exactly get your point here David, is it that actual liberal politicians are all those things? that reporters think they are and that's good? bad (because they should)?
Let's just say I'm helping to defend the liberal media from the accusation that they are particularly nice to Democrats.
