Talk radio ideologue Hugh Hewitt has a long blog piece seeking to compare the controversy over Dan Rather's probably fake documents about George W. Bush to that anti-Fox speech given in May by L.A. Times editor John Carroll. Hewitt's subtext never varies, far as I can tell — conservatives good, media bad, blogs trump all — so I generally figure his arguments are shaved to fit the party line, but maybe you'll get something more out of it. For background, below are some of the original L.A. Observed posts about the Carroll speech.
