LEFT, RIGHT, AND CRAZY. Via Belle Waring, Michael Ledeen uncorks a doozy:

In today's "reportage" of the World Cup semifinal between Italy and Germany, the (lefty) Washington Post reported that the game-winning goal was scored on a left-footed kick, while the (righty) Washington Times reported it was scored on a right-footed kick. The Post account was correct, but don't you find it mysteriously symbolic of something or other?

This mostly seems symbolic of the dementia of rightwing media criticism to me.
