the sleazy side of punditry

Eric Alterman's column, The Liberal Media, at The Nation, features a great and timely look at the right-wing propagandists increasingly blatant sleazy tactics, in the January 13th Pundit Limbo: How Low Can They Go?

"While often annoying, punditry is an honorable and necessary corollary to media in search of the holy grail of objectivity.
