Coverup among the rightwingers
May 3, 2013 - Harry Eagar
This would hardly be worth mentioning, except that rightwingers cannot draw 2 consecutive breaths without claiming that the MSM is suppressing the real story.
Well, not in every instance. Not, for example, when LA's favorite Republican host -- until very recently he ran something called Republican Party Animals -- is exposed as Holocaust denier David Cole. Let's let the Guardian relate how the rightwing treated this news:
"Some of Stein/Cole's erstwhile friends are media figures with blogs, newspaper columns and syndicated radio shows. They put a lid on the story. Not a word has been published or broadcast. 'When people found out it was, "Oh my God, get the ---- away from him." There was debate about whether everyone would look guilty by association,' said one entertainment industry artist, a member of Republican Party Animals, who requested anonymity. 'The reason we were all so pissed at him is it plays into every horrible stereotype about the right.' "
Why am I not surprised?
