Rule Number 2 -- If you're thinking about covering the story any other way, refer to Rule Number 1. On Thursday, the…

February 17th, 2010 1:42 PM
For some in the left-wing mainstream media the truth is too much to handle. I am referring specifically to's Alex Koppelman who is gunning for a spot on the list of "useful idiots" defending organized crime syndicate ACORN. (Salon's Joe Conason is already on the list.)
