Thou Doth Protest Too Much

The title is, of course, a classic quote from Shakepeare's Hamlet.

My Daddy always had a saying: "If you throw a rock into a crowd, the fellow you hit is going to holler."

It appears that the media is outraged over a purported Wikileaks that reveals a direct collusion between the Democratic National Committee and the mainstream media.

This should come as no surprise to anyone.  Ed Driscoll is all over it.

C'mon.  A simple Google search for DNC-MSM will give you 400K hits in under a second.

It's so obvious, we shouldn't even have to bring is up, but as Instapundit says: THINK OF THEM AS DEMOCRATIC PARTY OPERATIVES WITH BYLINES AND YOU WON’T GO FAR WRONG

We can find lots of opinion about what the Republicans need to do after a Trump loss, but nary a word about how the Democrats need to rebuild after nominating a known criminal.

Methinks that the MSM doth protest too much, or as Dad used to say, when you throw a rock into a crowd, the fellow you hit will holler.   In this case, the whole crowd is hollering.  It kind of makes you wonder, doesn't it?

To be more accurate, they aren't upset over the collusion. They are only upset that it's being revealed, and people are then starting to see them in the same manner as the USSR & Pravda, i.e. the official house organ for Democrat and inside the beltway, but I repeat myself, propaganda.

As long as the emails weren't revealed, people like my mother believed that the news media was still "objective". Seeing the revelations forces her to change her opinions, and then question what is published. Is it true, or false, and to what extent.

Taken too far, people stop watching & listening (already happening) and then the news media starts going out of business: Washington Post, Twitter, etc.

From the late, great Louis L'Amour:

"When you throw a rock into a pack of dogs - the one that yelps is the one that got hit."

I'm quoting from memory, I think this line was in one of the Kilkenny series.
