MWO shredded

Brendan Nyhan obliterates Media Whores Online in his most recent entry at Spinsanity. He documents some of their more egregious excesses, and dismisses the fawning coverage of them by Eric Alterman and Paul Begala. The kicker:

MWO's tactics simply pollute the public discourse. While many intelligent people read the site and are not seduced by its methods, the overall effect is to build a self-reinforcing community of aggrieved partisans and to help break down taboos among liberals against the rhetorical viciousness promoted.
