NewsBusters' Double Standard on Softball Questions
Topic: NewsBusters

Kyle Drennen uses a May 6 NewsBusters post to complain that NBC's David Gregory was tossing "softballs" in an interview with Google executive chairman Eric Schmidt.

Yet just five hours later, NewsBusters executive editor was lobbing softballs of his own in an interview with anti-abortion activist Marjorie Dannenfelser. Here are some of the questions tossed Dannenfelser's way:

  • Why do liberals like to regulate everything in existence except for abortion clinics?
  • What do you think is the reason that there is such reluctance to cover [the Kermit Gosnell trial]?
  • Tell us a bit about “3801 Lancaster,” the documentary that you guys have been showing up on Capitol Hill.

Yep, hard-hitting stuff. How can NewsBusters complain about others lobbing softball questions when it does the exact same thing?

Just another day of double standards at NewsBusters.
