but because Krugman, Ryan Cooper, Adam Serwer and Jon Chait have all posted about the terrible bias of the GOP Noise Machine, I thought you'd like to know what a member of the Machine said back in 2003:
"We come with a strong point of view and people like point of view journalism. While all these hand-wringing Freedom forum types talk about objectivity, the conservative media likes to rap the liberal media on the knuckles for not being objective. We've created this cottage industry in which it pays to be un-objective. It pays to be subjective as much as possible. It's a great way to have your cake and eat it too. Criticize other people for not being objective. Be as subjective as you want. It's a great little racket. I'm glad we found it actually."
