Can you imagine how he’d feel if they wen’t in the tank for her?
David Brock’s war against the New York Times just went nuclear — and the paper is responding with equal fury.
Brock, the former right-wing journalist-turned-pro-Clinton crusader, takes aim at a top New York Times editor in a soon-to-be released book obtained by POLITICO. In the book, titled “Killing the Messenger: The Right-Wing Plot to Derail Hillary Clinton and Hijack Your Government,” Brock accuses senior politics editor and former Washington bureau chief Carolyn Ryan of helping to turn the paper into a “megaphone for conservative propaganda” by unfairly targeting former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.
He’s ingested so much cocaine that the paranoia actually has him claiming the Times — The New York Fucking Times! — is pushing conservative propaganda. This from hack who runs Media Matters.
The founder of liberal watchdog groups Media Matters and Correct the Record casts Bill and Hillary Clinton, whom he tormented in the 1990s as a reporter with the American Spectator, as personal and political angels who offered him access to some of the Democratic Party’s biggest donors.
But he uses the book as a platform to attack the Times — whose editorial board endorsed Clinton over Barack Obama in 2008 — over its approach towards the Clintons from the Whitewater investigations of the 1990s to the current coverage of Hillary Clinton’s private email server.
“As it concerns Clinton coverage, the Times will have a special place in hell,” he writes, claiming that interviews with current Times employees prove his case.
You know what the Times should do now? Actually report fairly on Grandma’s criminal behavior. That reality may just kill Brock, which would sadden exactly nobody.
“Ryan held forth to colleagues that the response from [spokesman Nick Merrill] had been edited down to a few stray phrases because she — Carolyn Ryan — believed it was a lie — and that the Clintons just lie,” Brock writes, citing unnamed sources inside the Times New York newsroom.
“She has a hard-on for Hillary,” Brock quotes an anonymous Times source telling him. “She wants that coonskin nailed to the wall.”
Coonskin? That’s racist.
