"He instinctively can find the shining greatness of our American culture and does a good job of highlighting it (although he also does have those rare lapses when he writes about hockey, but that is something caused by impurities in the Eastern waters or something)." Erik Keilholtz

Say what you will about the crazy old right-wing Manchester Union Leader in the William Loeb days, it made no pretense about its bias. The same can't be said for today's Boston Globe, which not only has shelved any sense of objectivity in covering the presidential election, but is resorting to outright dishonesty in its role of shilling for the Democrats. Today's most e-mailed item on Boston.com is this morning's editorial, "Wasilla made rape victims pay." That smear was debunked at least a week ago. This past weekend, Globe political cartoonist Dan Wasserman defended a cartoon mocking Palin's Pentecostal background because, he said, Palin had described the Iraq war as a "task from God." That quote had been shown to be a distortion several weeks before. Either the Globe editorial-page staff is not bothering to keep up with the news, simply relying on the Huffington Post and the Keith Olbermann Show for its partisan talking points, or it is keeping up with the news and simply lying. Which is it?
