The Unbearable Lightness of Reading Dana Milbank

Richard Eskow

Feel free to read Dana Milbank if that sort of thing appeals to you, but don’t imagine for a minute that you’re learning anything. That would be like studying the French Revolution by reading Marie Antoinette’s cake recipes. The Milbank school of journalism – which at this point is American journalism -doesn’t just fail to inform. Somehow it’s able to subtract from a reader’s overall body of information, as if by magic, leaving her or him even less informed than they were before.
