It used to be just our dirty little secret — that media people brought to the job their own prejudices that lurked just under the surface, trotted out only after a couple of drinks around the hotel bar.
And it was surely no secret that most media folks were of the liberal Democratic persuasion who held their noses at the thought of covering a Republican National Convention, hoping mostly that the protests were good and the after-parties even better.
Well, the protests here were beyond pathetic — an ice sculpture of the words “Middle Class” intended to melt in the sun in a tiny nearby park was about as good as it got. And protesters were pretty much always outnumbered by police — which wasn’t that difficult to do.
So the frustration must have been enormous.
