Ignorance is no excuse

Stanley Kurtz of National Review Online offers a fine analysis of the comments of Sen. Santorum to the goofy AP reporter, and the subsequent dishonest characterization of those comments by the New York Times and others. Kurtz notes that much of the media criticism of Santorum stems for sheer partisanship and bad faith. But he believes that something more is at work. Kurtz concludes that “the profound ignorance in the mainstream media about conservative arguments on social issues — be these arguments constitutional, sociological, or religious — hamstrings the press’s ability to perform its job with even minimal fairness.”
