Hugh Hewitt Calls Out MSM for Botched Katrina Coverage

Appearing tonight on The News Hour with Jim Lehr, Hugh Hewitt called out the mainstream media for their botched coverage of hurricane Katrina. Here’s what he said:

“That’s terrible for a democracy, to have a media that is willing to suspend their disbelief and report myth. People have to ask, why was the media so eager and willing to circulate these stories? Is it because we are dealing with the urban under class, largely black, largely a community with which the elite media does not regularly deal, and as a result they were willing to believe stories about this community that they might not have given any credence to in a different situation.”

Hewitt has an article in the current Weekly Standard about “why so many journalists painted an exaggerated picture of the situation in New Orleans.”
