You just know Andrea Mitchell is a pro-Palestinian loon when it takes Joe Klein, of all people, to school her on the Israel/Hamas war. It’s kind of like al Qaeda declaring that ISIS is too extreme for them, isn’t it?
Klein, who in addition to writing for TIME Magazine has also penned columns for The New York Times, The Washington Post, and Rolling Stone, is about the last person you’d expect to hear distancing himself from left-wing talking points. After all, he once blamed Israel for Iran’s pursuit of nuclear weapons! But in this case, Andrea’s bias was simply too much for this lib:
“There’s been a failure of reporting on our side about the extent of the Israeli operation,” said Klein. “I’m talking about what The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, The Washington Post, the experienced correspondents on the scene are reporting … we have to present more nuanced reporting.”
Andrea immediately began stuttering and stammering, as she attempted to defend her impartiality. Eventually, Bill Kristol jumped in to support Klein’s criticism…a rare moment of media bipartisanship.
Alas, it was a short-lived victory over media bias, as unfortunately, the rest of the network doesn’t really give a damn about what Joe Klein thinks in this instance. In addition to inviting an Israel-bashing PLO spokesman today on “Morning Joe,” mere hours later, the “Jose Diaz-Balart” show on MSNB-Hamas featured a news report about a Palestinian man who lost his entire family in the crisis:
Wow, can you taste the balanced fairness?
We’ve heard the “Whack-A-Mole” analogy applied to killing terrorists overseas, but the metaphor can be aptly applied to the hack lefty journalists here in America too: every time you whack one biased liberal down, another pops up to take its place.
