More NewsBusters Heathering, Now With Added Class Warfare
Topic: NewsBusters

NewsBusters loves to go all Heather on conservatives who are not dogmatically so, and one of their favorite targets is New York Times columnist David Brooks.

Tim Graham has decided to go the class-warfare route in his latest Heathering of Brooks, writing about him buying a new, pricey house under the headline "David Brooks Is In 'The One Percent.'"Um, aren't right-wingers like Graham supposed to celebrate rich people?

Graham put "conservative" in scare quotes when describingBrooks, but he also noted that "Brooks outraged Occupy types last October in a column attacking the '99 percent' concept." But doesn't being rich and mocking the poor make Brooks exactly the kind of conservative Graham is supposed to like?

We're confused.
