Very well said, Rock. I am amazed that Jonah will write, "I am willing to believe that journalists like Gregory are sincere in their desire to play it straight" ! I don't believe that for a minute. I don't see Gregory as especially bright but he is obviously not out-and-out stupid. He is ,within my definition, a bald faced liar. He is a partisan for the left-most wing of the Democrat party. He knows EXACTLY what he is doing. He subscribes to the left's philosophy, "the end justifies the means", sans ANY bounds on the "means" Whatever it takes. He should be tarred and feathered and run out of town on a rail.
