Santorum: Ingraham Is a ‘Responsible Journalist’

Santorum: Ingraham Is a ‘Responsible Journalist’ April 2, 2018

Rick Santorum, CNN’s Chief Correspondent for Mind-numbing Stupidity, a job for which they actually pay him, tried to defend Laura Ingraham after her vile attack on pro-gun control activist David Hogg by saying she has a long history of being a “responsible journalist.”

Santorum agreed that Ingraham “made a mistake and she shouldn’t have done that.”

But the former Republican presidential candidate argued that liberals were also part of the problem.

“It’s part of what I see is a real problem in American politics, which is the demonization of people,” he said. “I understand that the president does that and sets a very poor example. We shouldn’t follow it. And that goes for both sides. The demonization over the last week has been on both sides of the aisle.”…

“Laura made a mistake, she apologized for the mistake. She has a long track record of responsible journalism and she’ll be back.”

A long track record of responsible journalism? Only if the words “responsible” and “journalism” have no meaning anymore. Her career as a “journalist” began as editor of the Dartmouth Review, alongside her then-boyfriend Dinesh D’Souza. They got attention by sending a “reporter” into a meeting of an LGBT group on campus and then publishing the names of those who were there, many of whom had important reasons to remain in the closet. How responsible of her! Since then, she’s just been another right wing talk radio screamer. She is neither responsible nor a journalist, by any rational definition of either of those terms.
