Media Matters

Dave Weigel and the Left’s ‘Message Discipline’

In discussing the efforts of Media Matters to suppress conservative messages, I was reminded of a theory that continues to intrigue me:

Remember Liz Mair's theory that David Weigel's Journolist e-mails were made public because Weigel had dared to dispute the Left's narrative that portrayed Rand Paul as a racist. Weigel wasn't toeing the line. He hadn't cooperated in the Meme-O'-th'-Day agenda and, by speaking out, had helped kill the meme that Democrats were employing to tremendous advantage. Was that why he became the Luca Brasi of MSM reporters?
