The magic of Judicial Watch: Back in the '90s when they first began dogging the Clinton White House, Judicial Watch was often called a "conservative" or "right wing" group.
Then, when Bush came into office, Judicial Watch began pressing the White House to release documents from Vice President Dick Cheney's energy task force. In the eyes -- and the news articles - of the media, they were no longer a "conservative" group, because they were going after Republicans. The terminology changed. Now, they were a "watchdog group." They were good guys.
Now it's changed again.
A conservative watchdog group with a history of dogging the Clintons urged a Senate panel on Monday to investigate Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton over a Hollywood fundraiser for which a former staffer faces charges.
This is the sort of thing that earns the liberal media some of the enmity which it so richly deserves.
