Sheppard Flip-Flops On Scarborough Within A Day
Topic: NewsBusters

Noel Sheppard can't decide whether he loves or hates MSNBC's Joe Scarborough.

In a Sept. 26 NewsBusters post, Sheppard chortled over a Newsweek profile of Fox News, in which president Roger Ailes said that Scarborough “tacks to the center” and “doesn’t act like a conservative.” Sheppard added, "Seems a metaphysical certitude most conservatives would agree with that statement."

The next day, however, Sheppard was singing a different tune about Scarborough, simply because he was toeing the Media Research Center party line: "People are shocked and stunned at the blurred lines when Roger Ailes and Fox does it, not so shocked and stunned when Democratic establishment figures have been doing it over the past three decades." Sheppard didn't mention his pleasure the day before in Ailes' criticism of Scarborough.

How shallow a person must Sheppard be if he changes his opinion of someone from day to day simply based on how closely that person's words hew to a partisan political agenda?

Shallow enough to have a job writing for NewsBusters, apparently.
