UPDATE: HALPERIN SORT OF APOLOGIZES
Many were upset after Mark Halperin plumbed the depths of hack partisan journalism while interviewing Ted Cruz.
It turns out he was so awful that even Think Progress couldn’t stomach it.
Here’s the headline:
The Prize For The Most Racist Interview Of A 2016 Candidate Goes To Bloomberg’s Mark Halperin
Ouch. It’s gotta hurt when someone like Halperin, who is so deep in the tank for leftists he long ago grew gills, gets called the “R” word.
Does this mean there are going to be some new ground rules for covering minority candidates who are Republican? Probably not. It’s more likely that Halperin is so awful that he’s going to get eaten by his own. Imagine Chris Hayes with even less personality or on-camera skill and you’ve got Halperin.
It was a strange couple of days, however, as Salon posted something sort of sensible about Islam, free speech and how the Left doesn’t get it.
Maybe the Apocalypse really is upon us.
