"It pays to be unobjective"

TomPaine.com (a left-leaning, somewhat iconoclastic webzine) writes aboutthe popularity of "conservative" journalism as enumerated by Matt Labash, a senior writer with The Weekly Standard. In an interview with a journalism website, Labash blithely says, "We've created this cottage industry where it pays to be unobjective" at the same time as you "criticize other people for not being objective." (As an ironic footnote, I've found TomPaine.com and The Weekly Standard to be about the most thoughtful "we wear our bias on our sleeve" sites from the left and right respectively. But TP's rant touches on an interesting topic about media biases, left and right: who is the liberal answer to Rupert Murdoch?)
