Martin Bashir Busts Paul Ryan For Voting ‘No’ On Hurricane Sandy Aid But Yes On Midwest Flood Aid



VIDEO here: http://www.mediaite.com/online/martin-bashir-busts-paul-ryan-for-voting-no-on-hurricane-sandy-aid-but-yes-on-midwest-flood-aid/


MSNBC host Martin Bashir called out former future Vice President Rep. Paul Ryan on his show Friday for voting against $9.7 billion in Hurricane Sandy relief, when, in 2008, Ryan was happy to pass flood relief as part of a $162 billion supplemental appropriations bill. What makes this more than your garden-variety liberal hypocrisy argument is that Bashir gave chapter-and-verse on Ryan’s vote to MSNBC Washington correspondent Mike Viqueira, who confirmed Bashir’s finding, and congratulated him on the good work. It was another fine demonstration that good opinion journalism can trump the presumed superiority of the ostensibly “objective” variety. -snip-
