Politicizing Tragedy: Fine for Me, But Not for Thee


Playing politics with a tragedy by falsely accusing your opponents of playing politics with a tragedy: it’s one of the oldest tricks in the book, and today’s culprit is The Daily Beast’s John Avalon, who has a new column about “the Wingnut fringe, who can’t understand the suffering of those outside their tribe.”  The object [...]

Two stories you won’t see at Media Matters today:
First, famous guy blames Haiti earthquake on angry deity. Pat Robertson and God? Nope: “actor” Danny Glover and “Gaia.”

My first blog (circa 2000) was called RelapsedCatholic, “where the religious rubber meets the pop culture road.” And I used to write for The Door, which proudly describes itself as the world’s only Christian satire magazine/homeless shelter/private detective agency.
