Those who are losing an argument often resort to smearing their opponents. Mike Barnicle, who a few years back was caught plagiarizing, and Al Sharpton, who a few years before that built his career by accusing an innocent man of rape, have resorted to smearing those of us who think New York Mike Bloomberg should at least confine his overbearing nannyist instincts to the city that actually elected him.
“Let’s get down to it, Mike Bloomberg, mayor of New York City, there’s a level of anti-semitism in this thing directed towards Bloomberg,” Barnicle said on this morning’s show.
“No doubt about it,” Sharpton responded. He continued: “If he was not a big-city Jewish man and was from another ethnic group, in some parts, I think it would be different.”
MSNBC employs both of these unapologetic and unethical smear artists.
