WaPo’s Gossip Gals Jump on Conservative Bloggers

Just in time for Christmas, WaPo‘s “Reliable Sources” took on conservative bloggers — John Hayward for Human Events, Fox News and Media Research Center’s Brent Baker to name names — who griped about NPR’s Nina Totenberg allegedly bashing Christmas.

Totenberg quickly hopped on WaPo‘s bandwagon. The item reads, “As for the bloggers who were so quick to judge — without bothering to ask her what she meant: “Jeesh, these folks need a life — and perhaps a touch of the Christmas spirit, as well.”"

In a tweet about the item, “Reliable Sources” writer Amy Argetsinger jumped down the bloggers’ throats for not calling Totenberg. She snapped, “Hey, bloggers, would it kill you to make a phone call? Nina Totenberg is ON YOUR SIDE in the War on Christmas.”

In the end, WaPo oddly never mentioned any calls to the conservative bloggers for comment — which seemed to be one of the author’s main points of contention in the first place.
