Former presidential hopeful and Massachusetts Senator John Kerry has come out with some disturbing commentary, which Glenn played on radio this morning.
Speaking about the media and its coverage of the Tea Party, Kerry said the following:
“And I have to tell you, I say this to you politely. The media in America has a bigger responsibility than it’s exercising today. The media’s got to begin to not give equal time or equal balance to an absolutely absurd notion just because somebody asserts it or simply because somebody says something which everybody knows is not factual. It doesn’t deserve the same credit as a legitimate idea about what you do. And the problem is everything’s put into this tit for tat equal battle and America’s losing any sense of what’s real, of who’s accountable, of who is not accountable, of who’s real, who isn’t.”
These bone-chilling statements that ultimately tell the media that it is their responsibility to ignore the Tea Party caused quite a stir among Glenn, Pat, and Stu.
