Liberal journalists have distorted reality

Letter writer John Bonn's accusation that former Gov. Robert L. Ehrlich Jr. and the GOP are out of touch with reality as related to the journalistic elitist left is a pure example of self-delusion ("The GOP lost because it's out of touch," Nov. 28).

If Mr. Bonn's lofty opinion of reality is shaped by today's journalistic credentials then he needs to re-examine the reality of the left's agenda without the arrogance of a card-carrying liberal. Since when do Democrats have the sole pulse of "real world" politics or societal challenges? Why did it take the reporting of Fox News to expose the hypocrisy of Susan Rice and her five Sunday talk show tour of fake and fabricated excuses for the death of four Americans in Benghazi days after their murders? Or, maybe we should believe the journalist likes of Dan Rather who advanced the false National Guard fitness reports of George W. Bush just before the 2004 presidential election.

In Mr. Bonn's view, one cannot gain "real world" objectivity unless one is a Democratic journalist. I think conservative Andrew Breitbart would disagree, having exposed the corruption of ACORN in a 2009 video sting, or Rep. Nancy Pelosi's assertions of racial slurs that never happened at a U.S. Capitol rally in 2010, or the Anthony Weiner sex scandal. But alas, while Mr. Breitbart is dead, his conservative spirit lives on in those of us who know the real truth unlike those who hide behind the shadow of what they think is reality.
