Yep like we said


Yep, like we said this afternoon, among the jobless.

Sinclair Broadcasting’s Washington Bureau chief Jonathan Lieberman got canned this afternoon for denouncing Sinclair’s Swift Boat stunt in an interview for this morning’s Baltimore Sun.

I give this guy a lot of credit. I feel bad for him. And I really hope someone picks him up quickly.

But my strongest impression is simply the outlandish quality of this drama. It’s like we’re a banana republic suddenly. Or it’s like the late 19th century in some unruly part of this country where the local papers and most of the legislators were owned by some railroad boss or some similar honcho or tycoon. Only now the rot and swindlerdom of it all is magnified by cutting edge technology.
