Once again, a gathering of journalists erupted into applause for a Bush-bashing tirade. Same thing happened over the summer. Here’s a quote from one of the few journalists who doesn’t shrug this off as unimportant:

I’m a newspaperman — these people don’t seem to understand what their role in society is. It makes me very uncomfortable.

— Jack Hart, managing editor,

Portland Oregonian

First off, props to Hart for not saying he’s a “newspaperperson.” Secondly, he’s dead right. Even if the vast majority of journalists do hate Bush, they should at least try to conceal the fact.
