As if we needed another example of the utter hypocrisy of the Old Media, we get New York Times screed-maker Binyamin Appelbaum who used his Twitter feed to smear Gov. Rick Perry over his Bernanke comments while giving V.P. Joe “Tea Partiers are Terrorists” Biden a complete pass.
Once again, Twitter catches the unhinged left revealing itself as the hypocrites they are. On Aug. 16, Appelbaum was all a twitter on Twitter over Rick Perry’s slap at Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Benrnanke.
If you missed the story that caused Appelbaum’s heart to skip a beat, on Aug. 15 in Cedar Rapids, Iowa Texas Governor Rick Perry said that in Texas Chairman Bernanke wouldn’t be given the wide latitude to muck up the economy as Obama has allowed him to do in Washington D.C.
If this guy [Bernanke] prints more money between now and the election … I don’t know what y’all would do to him in Iowa, but we — we would treat him pretty ugly down in Texas. Printing more money to play politics at this particular time in American history is almost treacherous — or treasonous in my opinion.
“News” inventor Appelbaum wasn’t having any of Perry’s talk, apparently.
But as Mark Hemingway says, it is a bit guffaw worthy that Appelbaum can get so outraged about a veiled threat to an out of control Fed Chairman — not a direct threat, mind you, but just an allusion to one — but has no problem at all with one Democrat after another calling Tea Partiers “terrorists” at every opportunity. He has nothing at all to say of Democrats issuing direct threats to those they disagree with. It is rather precious that Appelbaum can get so selectively incensed, isn’t it?
Yeah. More of the Democrat’s “new tone,” eh? And make no mistake. Appelbaum is not a journalist so much as just another Obama apologist and left-wing operative pushing a far left, anti-American agenda.
Remember, this is the same Appelbaum of whom we wrote the other day when he and co-writer Helene Cooper disgorged a biased attack on Republicans while attempting to come to the aid of Obama’s failed economic policies. So, Mr. Appelbaum’s leftist take on the “news” is well established.
Yep, it’s that “new tone” we keep hearing about. New tone just like the old tone, i.e. attack conservatives at every turn while giving Democrats a pass for the same behavior.
