Tweets Of The Day -- Revisionist Bedbugs At The New York Times (UPDATED)

WTF, the "paper of record"?

The author of the Times article, Jeremy Peters, has a history of sloppy reporting that leans over backwards to cosset right- wing knuckle draggers and their "Chosen One."  You don't miss something as blatant as Tea Party racism by accident.

BONUSSteve M. at No More Mister Nice Blog has the historical receipts (and pics).

UPDATE:  The blowback must've been strong (thank you, Paul Krugman) --

Still, their updated "context" is very weak, um, "tea."  Racism was at the core of the movement, not about "displays at some Tea Party rallies."  WTF, you gutless assholes.
