Crush Liberalism

Liberalism: Why think when you can “feel”?

NYT: Tea Party protests bad, union protests good

You know, if I didn’t know any better, I’d swear the New York Times is less interested in reporting and more interested in agenda-driving, even if they look hypocritical in the process.  If I didn’t know any better, that is.  From Jonathan Tobin:

In 2009 and 2010 the New York Times covered protests against the Obama administration’s stimulus spending bill and health care plan as the barely legal revolt of an unwashed and uncivil band of reactionaries determined not only to halt what the paper considered progress but also to thwart democracy. But anyone looking at the Times’ front page article on Saturday describing protests against the effort by Wisconsin’s newly elected governor and legislature to balance the state’s books got a very different view of a protest movement.

According to the Times, the activities of the Wisconsin public sector unions — whose expensive benefits have put their state on the brink of bankruptcy — are nothing less than the moral equivalent of the demonstrations in Tunisia that brought down an authoritarian dictatorship. As the headline “Wisconsin Leads the Way as Workers Fight Cuts” indicates, the whole focus of the piece is an effort to portray the unions and their Democratic allies as revolutionaries who are on the cutting edge of a movement that will, in effect, reverse the verdict of last year’s election.

Read the whole thing.  It’s short, but he lays out the indictment against the Old Gray Hag quite nicely, including a video link contrasting liberal rhetoric vs. reality.

As for the NYT: Nope…no liberal media bias!
