Journalists have never been known for humility, but Politico’s Roger Simon set a new standard for arrogance in an editorial penned after the GOP debate at St. Anselm College (N.H.).
Simon got carried away in the first paragraphs, starting with claiming the college was “packed with the most talented political journalists in America.”
Of course it was, and their approval rating with Main Street is lower than a debt collector’s.
Simon was wound up for sure. He wrote:
There are the old and wise heads, who have covered many of these presidential primary races and I shall not name out of deference to their tenuous hold on their careers.
Then he unleashed his inner leftist. Simon asked if the GOP field “is worthy of the press that covers them.”
