DC- Joy Reid Says She Was Wrong To Attack National Review.
Several journalists and liberal activists criticized National Review author David French for allegedly consoling conservatives that if there was an attack on a U.S. city, at least only liberals would die.
The outrage obscured the fact that National Review never mentioned anything about politics, and hardly could be interpreted as consolation to conservatives.
The firestorm started after Newsweek posted a write-up of French’s article claiming the conservative National Review “is telling its readers not to worry about a potential nuclear strike because they live in America’s suburbs and countryside.” That article was reposted by Raw Story, which then made the rounds through liberal Twitter.
MSNBC host Joy-Ann Reid found the Newsweek post and expanded the accusations, summarizing French’s thesis with a fabricated quote to her 1 million followers. more here
