This is the best inventory of the media's hypocrisy yet. Here is a list of things that President Barack Obama has, or hasn't done, that the press would have gone nuts over if former President George W. Bush had done the same things. But because Obama is doing them, there's barely a peep out of the press.
Such observations have become a cliche and many of my media colleagues will brush them off, unable to see beyond their self-satisfaction. But they have become a cliche because they are so true.
And the media continue to wonder why newspaper and network news ratings keep falling. Among all the reasons--competition from New Media, recession, etc.--surely this is one of them.
