Nowhere left to hide

Who knew the Christian Science Monitor was a shrill lefty rag? You may expect to hear that charge shortly, because following up on Friday night’s attempted one-man attack at the Pentagon, their story leads off as follows:

John Patrick Bedell: Did right-wing extremism lead to shooting?

Authorities have identified John Patrick Bedell as the gunman in the Pentagon shooting. He appears to have been a right-wing extremist with virulent antigovernment feelings.

As you can see, it is now clear that the CSM can no longer be trusted.

    I missed this beauty yesterday.

    You’ve really got this one backwards. Here, I can’t summarize how wrong you are any better than this wonderful summary. This was a crazed, Bush hatin’ truther.

    Your kind of man!

    • I never said what I thought. I said that because the CSM asked the question in print, they will now be maligned.

      The guy is a ‘truther’ as far as I know. The post isn’t about him. It’s about media and reaction to it. Am I that obtuse?

      • Not obtuse…gullible. You’re treating the CSM as some type of righty rag gone bad.

        At best, it is middle of the road.

        • Politically middle of the road is probably exactly right. They’ve never had a political identity far as I know.

          But now that they’ve asked THAT question, they will be called lefty. For a few days anyway. Then those name callers will move on to the next target.
