Media Whores Online

If you’ve watched CNN’s Crossfire lately, or since centrist Democrats James Carville and Paul Begala have joined the usual cabal of neocon shouters and goose-steppers, you may have heard mention of this site. Operating from an assumption that most of the corporate media is “liberal” in the way that Fox News is “fair and balanced,” MWO takes aim at the stenographers and genuflectors who work tirelessly to give the Bush administration a good name. If your male bovine excrement detector goes off whenever you watch the news or read the paper, this site will validate your perceptions. And the entertaining “Whore of the Week” feature is just what you might think; last week, the entire staff of the Washington Post got the distinction. MWO’s credo, below its nameplate, describes what it does most accurately: “The site that set out to bring the media to their knees—but found out they were already there.”
