Wash Times editorial: ‘Let them drink tea’

Wednesday, April 22nd, 2009

Washington Times:

Forget media bias. That’s just slanting the news. The liberal press judges stories before investigating them. That’s prejudice, which sums up how the anti-tax tea parties were covered this week.

Marc Cooper compared tax protesters to glue-sniffing lunatics in the Los Angeles Times. “Whip out your Lipton and don your tinfoil hat and join the protest against … against … against what exactly?”, he ranted.

A little later, going to a break, Matthews teased the upcoming segment with video of Rush Limbaugh, with an on-screen headline reading: “Trolls Under The Bridge.”

MATTHEWS: Anyway when we come back Rush Limbaugh wants Barack Obama to fail. He’s honest about it. Are Republicans letting Limbaugh speak for them?

At the opening of the segment Matthews drew guffaws from guest panelist Norah O’Donnell of NBC when he mocked Limbaugh again:
