Journalism? Eh, close enough...

Thank goodness modern American journalism "brighter lights" are maintaining the integrity long lauded in the journalists. Take it away Michael Grunwald of Time Magazine:
Okay, loves drones, irrationally hates Assange...that seems objective enough for David Gregory and such. But it does seem rather inappropriate for y'know sanity, so after twitter unleashed "shame" he saw the light...the very dim light.
Yeah, having people wish they could be killed by drones can do that...but as the twitteratti pointed out, still quite a jerk-move. Try again?

A journalist said something really stupid, and later withdrew his stupid assertion and apologized? Slap me silly with a wet Pulitzer on a Monday morning, I don’t believe it.

Would that this malady become an epidemic and ravage our poor Village, and hair shirts be as fashionable as power ties.

Ah, well, Time magazine has been a foghorn for the Beltway establishment ever since the days of Clare Booth Luce, who never met a fascist she didn't like.

Grunwald fits right in there. Of course he'd like to see Assange vaporized. To him, it's the American Way.
