From a great piece by David Ignatius due to be published in Sunday’s Washington Post.
Our late Post publisher Katharine Graham once chided some of us, "Just because you are getting attacked from both the left and right doesn’t mean you’re doing a good job." She was right, but it’s still a useful index.
I agree…until the “useful index” part. No it’s not. If the MSM were willing to call a lie a lie, they may have a chance to regain relevance. Having both sides criticize you assumes most comments by both sides are informed.
Don’t be misled by the lede. This article is more than about war correspondents and worth the time to read from a writer I greatly respect.
