Shills and activists masquerading as journalists

So-called journalists no longer pretend to be objective. They see themselves as human shields, willing to protect those pushing pet causes like gun control.

When a gun control activist attempted to disrupt last week's proceedings in the senate with an outburst and police tried to remove her, Huffington Post's DC bureau chief tells MSNBC that journalists intervened:
I interviewed her along with a number of other journalists right afterwards. They were trying to escort her out of the building, but journalists kind of formed a human shield around her because they all had their microphone in front of her. The Capitol Police realized perhaps arresting a hero of Tucson, right after the Senate knocked down this sensible gun bill, wasn't the best move, so they let her continue to talk.
