Drooling Over Foley

The first funny thing about seeing the mask drop and the real politics of people high and low in the Mainstream Media revealed is how regularly these sorts of things show not just liberalism, but nasty, gloating, scornful leftism of the most unappealing sort - the very antithesis of the kind of attitude one would want from even a fair-minded journal of liberal opinion, let alone a news source that at least pretends to be objective.
The second funny thing is we get revelations of this nature because people employed by news organizations are apparently unaware that things they say or do could be...well, newsworthy. And they're not always real bright about covering their tracks.
With that in mind, let us savor this email received recently by the Republican National Committee from an email address at CBS News:
From: Cammisa, Vincent [mailto: VAC@cbsnews.com]

Subject: Perverted Internship Program
Please send me information on how I can become an intern for some perverted, phony family-values Congressman. I know there's no shortage of Republican hypocrites on the Hill, so please rush me the info ASAP. And don't forget to keep covering-up your dirty little secrets, it makes great fodder for your enemies.
Our enemies, indeed. At least they identify themselves by name, employer and email address.
Oh, and one more question: Would Edward R. Murrow have sent that email?
UPDATE: CBS responds.
