HIGHLY Recommended Reading

Jason Linkins over at HuffPo picks apart the media's shameful role in propagating the "Quran Burn 2010" story which sucked up so many countless hours of airtime this week.  In this case the news orgs involved, irrespective of partisan stripe, essentially played the role of professional pot-stirrers, hoping desperately to stoke what was always a non-story about a hateful idiot leading a small flock of hateful idiots into a national nail-biter that had, by yesterday afternoon, somehow managed to encompass most of our prominent political figures, the safety of our troops abroad, and (naturally) the Park51 community center in NY.  Talk about the gift that kept on giving.
