Pious Pareene: The Prince of Preachy

Salon‘s Alex Pareene never misses a beat when it comes to addressing many other journalists as if they are beneath him, which seems to utterly contradict what he claims he believes to be the proper way for a distinguished reporter (such as himself, no doubt) to conduct himself.

In a story this week, he takes out two D.C. journalists — NJ‘s Marc Ambinder and MNSBC’s Congressional Correspondent Luke Russert — for their thoughts on ideas regarding Congressional security post shootings.

An excerpt:

The eternally useless Luke Russert has fixated on the supposed need to boost congressional security in his every MSNBC appearance since Saturday. Today, Marc Ambinder talks to some security professionals who offer the sort of ideas that security professionals would offer.

Read Ambinder’s story here. No reason to link to pious Pareene today.
