The Daily Howler calls our attention to the fact that Nantucket’s rich-and-famous ranks have swelled yet again with the addition of NBC’s Chris Matthews and his wife Kathleen. As the media elite continue to swarm over the island, it will be most interesting to watch coverage of the battle over the proposed wind farm in Nantucket Sound. As we have already noted, the rich-and-famous are concerned that the wind farm will adversely affect the view from their McMansions (and have enlisted His Excellency the Governor to carry water for them), despite the farm’s promise of unlimited and pollution-free energy for a region that has chronically bad air. So how will the media cover this story? We’ll be watching, and you should too – keep your conflict-of-interest detector handy!
