NewsBusters isn't the only one to invent a racism scandal. Newsmax's James Hirsen follows in its footsteps by writing in a June 13 article:
Recently, “Daily Show” host Jon Stewart made Herman Cain the butt of his unimaginative jokes, and his patter about the GOP presidential contender turned out to be not so coded.
Stewart aired video footage of Cain. The former Godfather’s Pizza CEO and current GOP presidential candidate was addressing the issue of the thousands of pages of Democrat legislation that admittedly was not read by them prior to passage. Cain said that bills should be limited to three pages.
After showing the footage, the Comedy Central star displayed a billboard that read: “Herman Cain 2012 — I Don’t Like to Read.”
The racist threads woven into this comedic sketch are that the black man has difficulty reading and lacks intelligence. Neither Jesse Jackson nor Al Sharpton saw fit to call a press conference.
As with NewsBusters, Hirsen's "racist threads" are imaginary. And as with NewsBusters, Hirsen has been silent about actual "racist threads" in Fox News host Eric Bolling's "hoodlum in the hizzouse" attacks on President Obama.
It seems Hirsen would rather invent racism accusations about his political enemies than condemn actual racism among his allies. Just like NewsBusters.
