American Thinker: Media Matters vs. the Gateway Pundit on Obama as MLK

Lee Cary at The American Thinker analyzes Media Matters’ twisted defense of Obama’s recent speech where he played the victim card and compared the critique of his failed policies to the suffering and vilification of Dr. Marin Luther King Jr.

Media Matters vs. the Gateway Pundit on Obama as MLK

Accepting Media Matters’ premise in its criticism of Jim Hoft of the Gateway Pundit requires what a politician once called a “willing suspension of disbelief.”

A word battle last week between two websites played out this way: Jim Hoft wrote that President Obama had compared himself to Dr. Martin Luther in a recent speech. Oliver Willis of Media Matters, calling Hoft the “dumbest man on the internet,” claimed that Obama was only “paying tribute to King’s fight for civil rights, using that as an example to the audience of why all Americans should fight in the face of adversity towards a larger goal.”
