Here we go with one of the most inane things I’ve seen from the media in recent memory. The folks over at Digitas Daily have compiled a short montage, aptly titled “How to Create a Media Narrative in 60 Seconds.” I believe this is actually part of a series, and in this case, they’re taking a look at how quickly the NBC news wing (mainly MSNBC and CNBC) jumped to craft a completely ridiculous hypothesis that Eric Cantor lost his primary because he’s Jewish. As expected, the guilty parties offer absolutely no evidence to back that claim up. It’s merely an attempt to make Republican voters out to be anti-Semites.
Alexander Burns of Politico actually penned a column called “For Jewish Republicans: Oy vey.” David Wasserman of The New York Times similarly added, “part of this plays into his religion. You can’t ignore the elephant in the room.”
Actually, I had no problem ignoring that so-called “elephant.” Do these people mean to tell me voters just discovered Cantor’s Judaism on Tuesday, after he’s spent over 13 years in Washington? What a joke.
