The Simplest Explanation

Mark Steyn, who is not Jewish — and thus has no payess to twirl — addressed the question of how the MSM managed to miss the story of Chas Freeman before he resigned:

Look, which is more likely? That the numbskulls of the New York Times, Washington Post, ABC, CBS, NBC et al were slipped the word by their buddies Goldberg, Podhoretz, and McCarthybergstein? Or that they ignored it because they wanted to protect the Big O from yet another nomination failure?

I’m going with the latter explanation, based on the application of Occam’s razor:  look to the obvious conspiracy of like-minded people, not the diverse collection of bloggers on the left and right, Democratic senators and Democratic and Republican House members, Jews and non-Jews.
