WSJ’s ‘Perkinsnacht’: Really?
Posted at 12:05 p.m. on Jan. 31
The Wall Street Journal came to the defense of billionaire Tom Perkins’ lament that the rich are persecuted, implying in its title, Perkinsnacht, that the attacks on him are equivalent to Kristallnacht, and claiming that liberals are “obsessed with the Koch brothers and other billionaires contributing to conservative causes, siccing journalists to trash them and federal agencies to shut them down.”
Matt Yglesias‘ response: “I guess one question you could ask here is who is the really ‘obsessed’ one—is it the conservative person who spends tens of millions of dollars on advancing conservative political causes, or is it the liberal person who complains about it?”
