NY Post Writer Omits Wilson's 1918 Flu Role, Repeats Reagan/AIDS Myths

The New York Post, though usually perceived as a right-leaning newspaper, has room for columnists from the "other side" — including selective and truth-challenged ones like Jennifer Wright.

The New York Times has now editorialized that Woodrow Wilson had a "toxic legacy" as an "unapologetic racist" that the Left on the Princeton campus was right to repudiate.

During a weekend leading up to President Obama making a more forceful case for war in Syria, CBS’s Sunday Morning was still pretending that Wilsonian internationalism could have prevented World War II.
Undeterred by his train-wreck on Cinco de Mayo, CBS gave comedian Mo Rocca another historical segment, this one on a new book by A. Scott Berg on President Woodrow Wilson. Rocca asked…
Morning Joe Mocks Olbermann's Special Comment Rants

But if Joe Scarborough is going to do a mocking imitation of Keith Olbermann in full Special Comment rant, well then, blogging ethics compel me to report it.The jumping-off point on Morning Joe today was Eugene Robinson's current WaPo column.
