You aren’t watching CBS News, right? Didn’t think so. You’d probably have to still be using rabbit ears on the top of your set to be down to that. Visual: Macaulay Culkin screaming his lungs out in Home Alone.
On Saturday, CBS News reported on the elections in Iran – by comparing the mullahs to the Tea Party. Reporter Elizabeth Palmer said, discussing the new president, Hassan Rahjani, “Well, he was seen as the most reform-minded of all the candidates who ran this time, that being said, they were all very conservative. In US terms it was as if all the candidates for the presidency came from the Tea Party.”
Yes, curry breath and suicide vests, standard accoutrements at most Tea Party rallies. This is looney liberalism at its apex.
Okay it’s easy to see how Joan Walsh is jealous of Sarah Palin: if you’re Joan Walsh you have to organize a safari to find a woman of whom you needn’t be jealous. Palin could build a vacation home in this woman’s mind and sell timeshares.
But CBS comparing the Tea Party to Iranian mullahs? This is Jeff Daniels dumb, no? I mean, dumb calling to dumb. For CBS to reach any deeper for incisive news coverage it would have to recruit Ted Baxter.
