We all know that the typical conservative out there rails against any kind of political correctness in the political media. However, when any liberal dares to say something non-PC, it’s frowned upon by the conservative media police.
In an April 17 article, Noel Sheppard chided Salon’s David Sirota in a piece titled “Let’s hope the Boston Marathon bomber is a white American“, with a subtitle stating “There is a double standard: White terrorists are dealt with as lone wolves, Islamists are existential threats“. Apparently, Sheppard took the headline completely literal to the bone:
We have seen some disgraceful reporting of the Boston Marathon bombing the past few days, but this headline at Salon Tuesday could be the worst.
As you might imagine, the author, David Sirota, is a perilously liberal political commentator.
Last month he participated in a CNN panel that compared supporters of traditional marriage to segregationists and slave owners.
During last year’s summer Olympics, he said he had “pangs of discomfort” watching Americans cheer team USA.
