Sanity Check via Wayback, 1 March 2006
I witnessed some of the most unprofessional broadcast journalism in my life history yesterday and today, in the treatment of Dr. Patrick Byrne on Kudlow and Co, where a gang of jounalists literally shouted over his voice, and this morning on CNBC, where the same tactics were tried again, only to have Patrick hold up a sign sending every viewer to go to www.thesanitycheck.com for more information.
These tactics I witnessed were similar to those used by the left against Ann Coulter recently, and are mirrored in the conduct of the Brown Shirts supporting Hitler in Germany in the 1920’s and 1930’s, and the Communists throughout their history. The hard left has used these tactics for decades, because they didn’t and don’t have an intelligent response to or plan for the issues at hand. Ditto here.
