NPR's Totenberg: 'We Shouldn't Care About Weinergate - It's a Great Lark of a Diversion'

One of the really enjoyable aspects of this week's scandal involving Congressman Anthony Weiner (D-N.Y.) has been watching the perilously liberal and devoted media shills tell America how unimportant the whole thing is.

A fine example was Nina Totenberg who said on Friday's "Inside Washington" that we really shouldn't care about this because " it's a great lark of a diversion" (video follows with transcript and commentary):

GORDON PETERSON, HOST: For several days this week we’ve been treated to questions about how a picture of a man’s crotch ended up on Congressman Weiner’s Twitter account. Was it the Congressman’s crotch or wasn’t it? Why should we care, Nina?

NINA TOTENBERG, NPR: Well, we probably shouldn’t care a lot. It’s a great, it’s sort of a great lark of a diversion.

Can you imagine Nina saying this if Weiner had an "R" next to his name?
