Comedy Gold!… Leftist MSM Reporters Beat Up On Internet After Van Jones Resigns (Video)
Now, that is good comedy!
What makes it even more hysterical is that they all take themselves so seriously.
The New York Times will publish their first print report on the Van Jones scandal tomorrow morning… more than 36 hours after the communist left the White House.
They refused to report on the story until the Mumia Abu Jamal-supporting Truther was long, long gone.
Good work, guys.

While Glenn Beck and others in the conservative commentariat had been shining a light on Jones’ radical past for a while, the revelations that finally sunk Jones were broken by Gateway Pundit and other bloggers. Not that long ago, the idea that a guy Googling in the basement would be capable of bringing down a White House staffer would have been a story in and of itself. I suppose some might think this sort of thing is old hat five years after Rathergate, but I also suspect that this aspect of the story will be largely ignored because it makes the MSM look very, very bad.
Actually, I was Googling upstairs at the time.
One of Friedman’s key take-aways from this whole affair is that too many people will self-censor themselves so they can get government jobs. What a tragedy that fewer people will support cop-killers and anti-American conspiracy groups because of poor Van Jones chilling effect on the culture.
Readers of the print edition of The New York Times will never have heard of the presidential appointee so controversial the President had to dump him. Is this a milestone in the decline of the NYT?
