The Double Standard.

Mr. Harris points out the differences in how the MSM handled the Easton and Gannon stories.

Wizbang correctly points out the following:

A few lefties are trying to compare the Eason and Gannon flaps and say they are the same thing... Even Kurtz fell into this trap.

But there is a WORLD of difference.

Eason Jordan wrongly accused people of murder. Gannon asked a few puffball questions. Comparing the two is a fool's game of moral equivalence.

The right hand of the blogosphere went after Eason Jordan because of his actions.

The left hand of the blogosphere went after Gannon because of who he was.
