It sounds like a cliché. “If Hitchens didn’t exist,” wrote Ian McEwan, “we wouldn’t be able to invent him.”
I’m looking at Christopher Hitchens’ latest book. On the front-cover he’s smoking and (my guess) sending secret smoke signals to neo-conservatives. And yet, in the world of politics, no-one appears more complicated than Christopher Hitchens because of [...]
Nah, just kidding. Here he is on Flotilla-Gate, siding with the enemies of civilization, as usual:

Later that year, Rebecca Walker described how her mother, author Alice Walker, has a similarly skewed perception of motherhood:

Rachel Maddow of MSNBC unveiled a profoundly dishonest assessment of the ACORN undercover video saga.
On her show she took irrelevant facts and half-truths and then made sweeping generalizations. This describes the Media Matters approach to waging war on “conservative misinformation” to a tee. If a semi-colon is out of place anywhere, you’re a contemptible liar hellbent [...]
