Topic: Accuracy in Media
How far to the right is Cliff Kincaid? He's bashing Investor's Business Daily for not being conservative enough.
In an Oct. 5 Accuracy in Media column bashing "many of the 'conservatives' in the media" for being "not so conservative after all" because they supported the financial bailout even though it's a "socialist-style bailout scheme," Kincaid went after everyone from Fox News to the Weekly Standard, adding:
The situation is similar over at Investor’s Business Daily (IBD), whose conservative editorial page writers were pressured to endorse a swift federal takeover of the financial sector. As some observers noted, IBD’s “Time to Act” editorial, which backed the socialist-style Paulson plan, severely undercut the credibility of its own editorial series highlighting and criticizing the socialist proposals of Barack Obama. IBD forgot a basic lesson―that socialism is wrong, even when a few corporate Republicans support it for the benefit of Wall Street.
Funny, we figured that the basic lesson here is that Kincaid is so far to the right that he makes the hard-right IBD look liberal by comparison.
