Google/Current casts a jaundiced eye at Malkin

While it’s still running you might want to check it out.

Google, in association with Al Gore’s Current broadcast, seems to go out of its way to make sure everyone takes a notion away from the piece that Michelle is eyebrow-raisingly extreme and “ridiculous.” And there is a vaguely insinuation that the blogosphere is hypocritical.

Also in the piece is Andrew Sullivan’s shrewd observation that the press seems more interested in being moral arbiter than a disseminators of information:

“…it’s up to places like Wikipedia or the blogosphere to disseminate actual facts, images and informed opinions. Obviously, I don’t see the need to publish everything. And editorial judgment counts. But we are approaching a time when the MSM may have that as precisely its role – not as a source of informaton, but as an arbiter of social etiquette and good judgment. The NYT as Miss Manners.”

Oh, heavens! IMAGINE that!

Google/Current does seem to go beyond mere “reporting” on Michelle. It seems to jump into a puddle of “ain’t she awful,” with both feet.
