Media Whores Online Is Back -- And They're Kicking Right-Wing Butt!

After a well-deserved vacation, the watchdogs at Media Whores Online have returned with an excellent collection of articles. Interestingly, the best pieces are those directed at two New York Times columnists who haven't totally prostituted themselves to the ReTHUGlicans, Thomas Friedman and Maureen Dowd. Friedman is basically a good guy, and the column cited in the article is an excellent critique of the "administration's" foreign policy, but MWO points out where he has a huge blind spot. Dowd is another story; while she's not completely evil -- like, say, Susan Schmidt, Katherine Seelye or Howard Fineman -- she does try awfully hard to be a Heather: a "kool kid" in the school's most prestigious clique. While Dowd writes well, her columns are all style and little or no substance.
