This Bloody Fight's Been Rigged!
Power Line tipped me to a fascinating article by Todd Manzi up at Human Events, provacatively titled "The Vast Left-Wing Conspiracy: Attack on Bill Bennett Was Staged." While Manzi makes some powerful points about the irresponsibility of the press, he ultimately fails the twin labors of Hercules he sets himself: either to prove that the dogpile on William Bennett was "staged," or to offer any practical suggestions for preventing such media mayhem in the future.
My response turned out to be 1,600 words... far too long for a blogpost. So it has become the second hissing of my semi-regular column, the Lizard's Tongue -- go thou, o wise, and read why I say Manzi did not deliver the knockout blow many think he has!
