The new Left: “racist” jokes that actually parody racism, bad. Obvious fat joke cheap shots, OK
Such is the hypocrisy of the Left.
On the one hand, we hear about the increasingly leftist BBC omitting classic segments from the superlative comedy series, Fawlty Towers, produced by and starring, er, leftists.
On the other hand, we have CNN’s Erin Burnett doing a story about FaceBook CEO and founder Mark Zuckerbeg’s endorsement of Republican New Jersey Governor, Chris Christie.
In her intro, she refers to Zuck’s “obese checkbook”.
Weasel all you want, but that was an obvious cheap shot, and a classic case of ever-changing goal posts, opportunism, hypocrisy, selective moralism, and worst of all, partisan comment being passed off as objective journalism.
Not cool for Erin, who’s usually half decent for a CNN host.
