Brad DeLong apparently called Elizabeth "Are you a liberal?!?!?" Bumiller about one of her asinine articles the other day. The piece in question is kind of a 'meta' example of Bumiller's postmodern project of creating a perfectly relativistic world, where no truth exists, only spin, in that it pitted Condi Rice and Cheney against each other in their accidental disagreement over how to smear Dick Clarke, instead of the usual administration vs. everyone else. Not that she settled the dispute or conveyed any facts, goodness no, but it is sort of theoretically interesting to watch them parse untruths like that. And even though she pulled a McClellan on Brad, evading or just pretending not to hear his questions, I think this sets a fine precedent for guerilla tactics forcing the news media to do their job.
