How is it that the entire debate about the Kelo eminent-domain decision has run its course without anyone mentioning that the President of the United States made most of his huge fortune by arranging for exactly that sort of taking of private property for private use?
Imagine a Democratic President in the same situation, and imagine what Fox and Rush and Drudge would have made out of it. That’s why it’s fair to say that the country has, in effect, no liberal media in the sense that it has conservative media.
Update A reader offers a correction:
Not “conservative media;” “right wing partisan media.” Drudge et al. are not “conservative” in any sense that is recognizeable in the sense of a political philosophy like that of Burke or Bob Taft (for example).
