Necessary

If Media Matters did not exist it would be necessary to invent them:

But Broder didn’t name a single senator of either party to support his contention. Indeed, the entire Senate Democratic Caucus responded by sending a letter to the Post in which they praised Reid as an “extraordinary leader who has effectively guided the new Democratic majority through these first few months with skill and aplomb.”

In claiming that Reid is as much an embarrassment as Gonzales, Broder cheated a bit: He not only distorted Reid’s comments, he glossed over Gonzales’ failings — a complete description of which would have made the comparison laughable. Broder made only passing mention of Gonzales, downplaying his involvement in the scandal surrounding the Bush administration’s purge of federal prosecutors, and omitting any mention of other Gonzales controversies.
