On Liberal Media’s Single-Payer Failings

Longtime friend of FAIR Sam Husseini (, 8/21/09) has a new blog post responding to Robert Kuttner’s recent Washington Post column, in which the American Prospect magazine editor “asks ‘Where are the liberal protesters?'”:

It seems like a good question. Until one considers the source of the complaint–and that rather helps answer the question.

Maybe the “liberal protests” are where the American Prospect‘s cover story of the “Baucus 13” is.Or the where the American Prospect‘s lengthy piece on Linda Allision’s exchange with Obama is.

Since clicking on the above links yields absolutely zero results in the American Prospect coverage, Husseini urges you to “read up on the ‘Baucus 13‘ and Linda Allison‘s questioning of Obama” while asking, “If ‘liberal’ mags like the American Prospect were serious about reform, wouldn’t they have relentlessly plugged the ‘Baucus 13’ and Linda Allison?”
