As expected the liberal media is rallying to the defense of liberal Democratic senator Robert Menendez against his (apparent) smearing by the conservative The Daily Caller.
The liberal media from Slate to the Washington Post to CNN to the Huffington Post are (quite justifiably) dumping all over the conservative The Daily Caller for apparently falling for a Castroite scam to damage Senator Menendez.
The liberal media report that Castro’s agents apparently planted the story of his sexcapades with underage Dominican prostitutes in order to damage Menendez because of his strong support for and effective leadership in maintaining the Cuba embargo.
The liberal media from Slate to the Washington Post to the Huffington Post to CNN all oppose the Cuba embargo. Like Hillary Clinton they constantly call it Castro’s “best friend,” because it supposedly provides him an excuse for his economic failures and repression…blah…blah.
Then why was Castro’s intelligence trying to smear the most powerful Congressional proponent of the embargo–of their ‘best friend?’ Shouldn’t Castro’s agents be planting stories about Rangel and Flake and Leahy and Mc Govern and other such embargo opponents?
If anybody notices any acknowledgement on the part of the liberal media that they can’t have it both ways and/or that they are collectively under medication for schizophrenia please notify us here at Babalu.
