John Kerry: ‘Media Should Not Give Equal Time’ to Tea Party

Via Real Clear Politics.

Sen. John Kerry (D-MA) told MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” on Friday that the media has the responsibility to not give equal time or credence to the Tea Party’s views:

SEN. JOHN KERRY: “And I have to tell you, I say this to you politely. The media in America has a bigger responsibility than it’s exercising today. The media has got to begin to not give equal time or equal balance to an absolutely absurd notion just because somebody asserts it or simply because somebody says something which everybody knows is not factual.”

“It doesn’t deserve the same credit as a legitimate idea about what you do. And the problem is everything is put into this tit-for-tat equal battle and America is losing any sense of what’s real, of who’s accountable, of who is not accountable, of who’s real, who isn’t, who’s serious, who isn’t?”

Good idea, John. Let’s start with the absurd bullshit from leftwing politicians and their media lackeys.
