The ABC News interview with former House Speaker Newt Gingrich’s second ex-wife, has prompted radio host journalists aren’t held to the same standard as those they investigate. Limbaugh said that it was appropriate to do so, since media are no longer just reporting, but passing judgement. The Daily Caller has more.
MSM journalists are unlikely investigate themselves with rigor, so this role would be ideal for independent bloggers. Such blogs might thrive on increased traffic but would likely need some financial help to take on this added role (with all outside funding disclosed). For campaigns or Superpacs this could be a great investment.
