Everybody Loves The Simpsons

I know this is a attribution stretch, but try to stay with me. In today's "Media Notes" Howard Kurtz, quotes The Weekly Standard's Alan Jacobs on lefty reporter Robert Fisk.
The substance of his writing is easy enough to indicate: imagine someone taking simultaneous dictation from Mohammed Saeed al-Sahhaf and Noam Chomsky. The tone--and tone is what makes Fisk Fisk--is perhaps a trifle more elusive of description, but viewers of 'The Simpsons' will perhaps understand when I say that Fisk is the Krusty the Clown of journalism.
I laughed out loud when I read "...that Fisk is the Krusty the Clown of journalism.

Fisk's descriptive power is good, even though I disagree with his political position. Not that I agree with the vehemently right-wing, administration mouthpiece The Weekly Standard either.
