Sam Donaldson on the Daily Caller
The wingnut crowd has been frantically casting about for a way to defend Daily Caller “journalist” Neil Munro’s crass behavior at yesterday’s White House announcement, and some of them are comparing Munro to Sam Donaldson and his famously tough questioning of Ronald Reagan. Donaldson responded to these comparisons today:
What this man did yesterday is something new, to me wrong and unusual. I think it is probably the result of the growing incivility of the times, the competition among reporters and news organizations to be noticed not only for the work product but for the theatrics of the gathering…and there is one more factor, let’s face it: Many on the political right believe this president ought not to be there – they oppose him not for his polices and political view but for who he is, an African American!
