Paul Krugman & The New York Times Are Such Jokers
It is very difficult to keep up with the dishonesty from the liberal media these days.
Today, the renowned columnist Paul Krugman at The New York Times goes on a conservative-bashing rampage. His column is nothing more than a list of mean-spirited liberal talking points:
“Conservatives Are Such Jokers”
…Before the last election, the actor Michael J. Fox, who suffers from Parkinson’s and has become an advocate for stem cell research that might lead to a cure, made an ad in support of Claire McCaskill, the Democratic candidate for Senator in Missouri. It was an effective ad, in part because Mr. Fox’s affliction was obvious.
And Rush Limbaugh — displaying the same style he exhibited in his recent claim that members of the military who oppose the Iraq war are “phony soldiers” and his later comparison of a wounded vet who criticized him for that remark to a suicide bomber — immediately accused Mr. Fox of faking it. “In this commercial, he is exaggerating the effects of the disease. He is moving all around and shaking. And it’s purely an act.” Heh-heh-heh.
First of all, Claire McCaskill lied in those ads on stem cell research.
Senator Jim Talent was not against stem cell research, just embryonic stem cell research where embryos are killed. Claire knew this. She ran the ad anyway.
Rush Limbaugh never claimed that those who oppose the war are phony soldiers. That was a lie by Hillary Clinton’s Media Matters. But, Krugman repeated it anyway.
Rush Limbaugh never compared a wounded vet who criticized him for that remark to a suicide bomber. That was a also a lie by Hillary Clinton’s Media Matters. But, Krugman repeated it anyway.
That was just two paragraphs!
Shame on Paul Krugman and The New York Times for their dishonest report.
Is this what the media has become? Just a bunch of liberals repeating the talking points of Hillary Clinton’s Media Matters website?
If Paul Krugman and The New York Times believe this column passes for honest journalism-
then we all know who the real jokers are.
On the other hand… This post on economics at Instapundit is more worth your time.
