Take My Word for It

Too lazy to link, but apparently Forbes magazine named Matty-Y and Ezra Klein two of the 25 most influential liberals in the media.

I'm not sure if that's better or worse than the fact that Tom Friedman and Maureen Dowd are also on the list, but holy-shit. What the fuck is going on?

Brad must be really proud of me for not mentioning how Matty-Y, by himself, is two of the 25.

Andrew "Bell Curve" Sullivan somehow got on the list too, which appalled me. Sure, he provides a, um, "valuable service" to the gay community by being our very own prominent Uncle Tom, but he never even describes himself as a liberal!

I could see Josh Marshall on the list because he seems to be able to occasionally push a story into the limelight against an mainstream media. But Yglesias and Ezra are second team along with Megan. Who beyond a limited circle of readers is even reading them?

Matt's no fucking liberal. What a disgraceful insult to him. He's much more tasteful than that.
