BWAHAHAHAHAH! Brit Hume Says Because of Blogs News Will Be More Partisan

[Hat Tip ThinkProgress]

At the blatantly wrong-wing Media Research Center's Award Gala this past week, Brit Hume, who got their award for journalism excellence (?!?!?!?!?), said the following:

HUME: What are we getting?…We’re getting bloggers and websites and all sorts of individual entrepreneurs, and we have a vaster menu of choices today than we’ve ever had. But I think that we also have the danger that everything will be presented from one political viewpoint or the other, and that the media that confront us are going to be more partisan than ever — which means that the Media Research Center will have a mission for many years to come, and a good thing that is.

Now that's funny! Here's a man spinning GOP talking points and all the while claiming blogs are the problem... Real News did away with itself long ago. And FAUX News helped seal the fate of Real News.

As Think Progress points out, it's even more funny when you learn that, in the same speech, Hume thanked the blatantly wrong-wing MRC for feeding him talking points, which he used on the air.

HUME: I want to say a word, however, of thanks, to [MRC president] Brent [Bozell] and to the team at the Media Research Center and all the contributors who make that work there possible. […] also for the tremendous amount of material that the Media Research Center provided me for so many years when I was anchoring Special Report. I don’t know what we would have done without them. It was a daily, sort of a buffet of material to work from, and we — we — we certainly made tremendous use of it.

There you have it. FAUX News and Brit Hume are tools of the radical wing of the Republican Party. And not very good tools at that.
