Tom Blumer uses an Aug. 22 NewsBusters post to mock Jesse Jackson's response to the killing of Christopher Lane in Oklahoma that "senseless violence is frowned upon." Under the headline "Jesse Jackson's Tepid Tweet," Blumer repeats various random Twitter responses calling Jackson's response "tepid" and"milquetoast."
Remember when Blumer's boss, Brent Bozell, couldn't muster anything more critical of Rush Limbaugh'sthree days of misogyny against Sandra Fluke than "Let's all agree Limbaugh crossed a line"?
Bozell might as well have said what Limbaugh did was "frowned upon." On the other hand, Jackson hadn't given any of the Oklahoma murder suspects a "William F. Buckley, Jr. Award for Media Excellence."
