I get why Republicans are forced to fawn over Jindal but why are reporters pretending he's a hero, too? salon.com/2013/01/25/the…—

Gov. Bobby Jindal’s speech to the RNC last night is still generating a lot of buzz in the media world, and, well, Joan “editor at large when it’s convenient, morons” Walsh is upset. In a new piece, cleverly titled “The shame that is Bobby Jindal,” Walsh takes the media to task for paying attention to Jindal and taking him seriously as a conservative voice. Why aren’t they doing their job and being hard on him?
The acclaim for Jindal’s speech is an example of bigotry by the mainstream media: “the soft bigotry of low expectations,” to use one of George W. Bush’s few good lines.
