CNS' Jeffrey Devotes Two Columns to Hating Newsweek
Topic: editor in chief Terry Jeffrey hates Newsweek's profile of Michele Bachmann so much, he devoted two full columns to attacking it.

First up was an Aug. 9 "commentary" piece complaining about Newsweek's "left-wing bias" not just in the cover photo but also in the sdtory's "vapid attempt to portray both Bachmann and the Tea Party movement as 'radical' because they want to see the size of the federal government reduced." This prompts much ranting by Jeffrey about the size of government, asserting, "What we have seen in the last two and a half years is a radical increase in federal spending. Rollling it back to more normal historical rates is not a radical cause."

Jeffrey followed this with his proper weekly column, which sought to explain that the Newsweek article "was actually a valuable seminar in why the elitist left fears successful female conservative politicians and why it perceives Bachmann to be a particularly formidable threat to its own ambitions to direct the future of our country."

Yes, it took two full columns for Jeffrey to sufficiently hate Newsweek over a single article.
