CNS' Jeffrey Fluffs Jerry Boykin, Ignores His Hate

In an unusually fawning July 13 article, editor in chief Terry Jeffrey slobbers all over William G. "Jerry" Boykin, who has just joined the right-wing Family Research Council. Sounding much more like a PR flack than a "news" reporter, Jeffrey dutifully recounts Boykin's military credentials and touts Boykin in his FRC role "hopes to do his part in helping Americans who believe in this nation’s traditional values win an intensifying 'culture war' for its future."

As befits a PR flack, Jeffrey dutifully ignores any sort of hint of controversy around Boykin, even though he has a lengthy history of making inflammatory and insensitive statements, mostly of the anti-Muslim variety, though he has also likened President Obama to Castro and Stalin.

Just consider this more evidence that CNS cares only about pushing a partisan agenda, not "news."
