"Think Progress’s continued flogging of one video clip of Mitt Romney saying "corporations are people, my friend" is exactly the type of thing liberals complain about when conservatives do it to liberals. The clip was plucked by CSPAN, aggressively promoted by Think Progress, reported on by mainstream outlets, turned into an ad for the DNC, and then, on Monday, promoted by Think Progress again in an effort to keep the controversy alive and, through repetition, make Mitt Romney seem like the "corporations are people, my friends" guy. … [T]he real question is whether the liberal thinkers lamenting the so-called "hack gap" between conservatives and liberals are comfortable with what the progressive counterpart to the conservative media infrastructure looks like," – Matthew Zeitlin, TNR.
