Crittenden continues the beat with Bleeding, Leading in which he comments on Greenwald the sock puppet. Ok, maybe that is not fair, my also calling him a sock puppet. But if you ask me it is better than saying that he comes across as a semi-hysterical shill for terrorists. Now that is probably too extreme, so maybe we should return to the sock puppet. Either way we’ll give Greenwald some time in the sun.

Jefferey Goldberg wrote The World’s Pornographic Interest in Jewish Moral Failure. Look at this excerpt:
“Once, in Khan Younis, I actually saw gunmen unwrap a shrouded body, carry it a hundred yards and position it atop a pile of rubble — and then wait a half-hour until photographers showed. It was one of the more horrible things I’ve seen in my life. And it’s typical of Hamas. If reporters would probe deeper, they’d learn the awful truth of Hamas. But Palestinian moral failings are not of great interest to many people. “
