McIlheran's Painful Hypocrisy

In Sunday's article, Preview Paddy* writes about a sting operation at a Planned Parenthood in Appleton, and calls it great journalism. Whatever.

He ends his piece with this:
It's been a tough year for the press, so much that people worry about whether we'll have an informed public in the future. The worry's genuine, but against it we can count the fact that there still exists out there the drive to reveal sordid hidden truths, an instinct so on-target as to make defenders of the powerful snarl, "Why don't they just go away?"
It is more than ironic that Paddy would worry about the "informed public," considering that the vast majority of his work (think in the 90 percentile range) is nothing more than parroting the National Review or some other similar site and flat out lying to his readers.

What I am curious about is whether he really knows that he is lying and doesn't care or if he is really that deranged.

*Yes, he is still emailing out previews even though his boss said that it would be stopped.
