Thunder on the Right, Maybe

When liberal media report on conservative politics, the result is often baffling. Mike Allen has a piece today about conservative unhappiness with President Bush. In it, he does not mention that the most important conservative voice in America, Rush Limbaugh, has been quite critical of the president in recent weeks. Instead, Allen quotes a bunch of Washington-based eggheads and busy-bodies who find Mr. Bush wanting in this way and that.

One of the chief failings of blogging, we are told by people who refer to themselves as journalists, is that bloggers have no editors. Fair enough. But does anyone edit The Washington Post? How is it possible to write an article about conservative dissatisfaction with President Bush and not mention Rush Limbaugh?
