Media Monday: Union unison
Here are some of the outrageous quotes from the liberal media about union demonstrations in Wisconsin, courtesy of the Media Research Center:
No agenda here: "We turn now to that outrage you just heard about in Wisconsin, where the Republican-controlled Senate voted last night to cut collective bargaining rights for public employees."
-- NBC's Ann Curry on the "Today" show, neglecting to mention that state's runaway Democrats.
It's racism! (again): Host Lawrence O'Donnell: "The Republican Party is saying that the president of the United States has bosses, that the union bosses this president around ... . Does that sound to you like they are trying to consciously or subconsciously deliver the racist message that, of course, of course, a black man can't be the real boss?"
Former Michigan Gov. Jennifer Granholm: "Wow, I hadn't thought about the racial overtones ... ."
-- An exchange on MSNBC's "The Last Word."
And taxpayers' rights?: "We've seen the public employees say, 'We'll pay more for our health care and pensions, but you can't take away our rights.' Have the governors here gone too far?"
-- ABC's George Stephanopoulos to Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul on "Good Morning America."
