When Republicans Attack…


…other Republicans! Here's the Media Research Center's L. Brent Bozell III (count 'em) latest col, in which the Mullah of Media Bias chides GOPpers for going soft in the trenches:

Memo to: Republican Party Leaders

Re: Where Are You???

The other day John Kerry had finished addressing the American Society of Newspaper Editors convention and was greeting participants when the C-SPAN camera caught one woman, presumably a member of the Fourth Estate, gushing to the Democratic candidate, ?You?ve got my vote!? There?s no surprise here. It?s almost impossible to distinguish between Democrats and journalists in their passion to elect Kerry and defeat Bush.

But where, oh where, are you?

It?s good to criticize those in the media who long ago lost sight of the word ?balance? (not to mention ?fairness?) and there are plenty of us on the outside pointing this out. But you, who have the mantra of ?GOP leaders? ? where are you? Your silence is shocking to the point of disgraceful. At best you are inept. At worst, you are cowards, unwilling to engage your political foes.

There is no shortage of issues, and opportunities available to you. You should be having a ball exposing and neutralizing the leftist press, not to mention the leftwing political opposition (or do I repeat myself?), yet you?re AWOL from the debate….

A day doesn?t go by wherein there isn?t a golden opportunity not only to show America what the left?s philosophical agenda truly is but also, by distinction, how different it is from yours.

Assuming you have one.

Whole thing here.
