It’s time for the folks at Media Matters for America to just shutter up the shop and go on holiday. There’s really no other explanation for throwing hissy fits that coverage of the inauguration of a sitting Republican president doesn’t feature enough liberals (or the less pejorative “progressives” as the bloggers on the MMA payroll like to refer to themselves).
They can’t be serious, can they? It’s like claiming there’s not enough liberals covering the Republican National Convention. What news executive is going to schedule a giant slate of members of the opposite party at an inauguration? The networks didn’t do it for Clinton, Bush Sr., or Reagan; why should they start now?
Bonus – They’re not happy that the few protesters on hand were casually dismissed by the cable news outlets either.
