Another Journalist Breaks Ranks

Writing in the Chicago Sun-Times Mark Steyn adds his voice to that of Jack Kelly from the Post Gazette. Both men are fed up with the biased and defeatist tack taken by the mainstream media of which they are a part. Steyn writes:
Sen. Joe Lieberman, Democrat of Connecticut, came out with a big statement on Iraq last week. Did you hear about it? Probably not. Everyone was still raving about his Democrat colleague, Rep. Jack Murtha, whose carefully nuanced position on Iraq is: We're all doomed unless we pull out by next Tuesday! (I quote from memory.)
Here's hoping that there are still enough oldschool journalists around to serve as an effective conscience for the MSM.
