Intellectual Honesty

From a big name in the press, no less:

Tom Brokaw, on the "surprise" NH Clinton victory over Obama and his colleagues' reaction -
"The pirouettes are amazing. The utter confidence with which everyone had been wrong 20 minutes earlier, they have the same utter confidence about what produced this surprise. It's intellectually dishonest."
Has Tom had a breakthrough about the culture in which he works? I'll bet if he sat and thought about it, other examples of how press culture works would pop out of the woodwork right and left.

But mostly left.
