Pajama factchecker brigade 1, silly journalists 0

This WaPo article by Michael Birnbaum about the supposed conservative white wash of history being pushed on Texas schools was pretty devastatingly taken down by Ann Althouse and others. One more point for the pajama brigade.

There may well be some disagreeable stuff in the education curriculum that was approved in Texas, but Birnbaum certainly didn't make the case. Instead he furthered a different view, something about liberal media bias, blah, blah, blah.

I wonder sometimes how many journalists have yet to discover this thing called the Internet. They should look it up on LexisNexis. They may find some citations on the subject and perhaps read articles on microfiche.
