Pat Caddell Expresses His Distain for New York Times Columnist Paul Krugman

During an episode of the late late night Fox show known as “Red Eye”, former Jimmy Carter pollster and political analyst Pat Caddell expresses his distain for New York Times columnist Paul Krugman.

Daily Caller

On Fox News Channel’s Friday airing of “Red Eye,” host Greg Gutfeld wondered if the media was denial over the notion it had little to do with the actions of Jared Loughner, the suspect in the recent Tucson, Ariz. shooting.

“Here’s an interesting point — as the truth comes out about this nutcase, doesn’t it seem like the media can’t believe that the killer doesn’t care about them?” Gutfeld asked. “It’s like they think they had an impact on him, when in fact all he cares about is UFOs.”

That led Caddell to launch into a rant about the media, specifically naming New York Times columnist and Nobel Prize-winning economist Paul Krugman and Newsweek and Daily Beast columnist Jonathan Alter.

“He is a flat-out asshole.”, said Caddell..

" The point is – you know, this thing started – I have to say, when I look at [Paul] Krugman and Jonathan Alter, with his advice and the president, ‘Don’t let this go to waste – let’s make it like Oklahoma City,’ and Krugman who is just a flat-out asshole, I’m sorry – these people what they did…”

Caddell indicated their initial response should have been different.

“People are dead and the first thing you have to do is go to politics, I mean no wonder the country hates the media and hates the politicians,” he said.

Wild Thing's comment.......

I couldn’t agree more. I have posted other things Pat has said. LOLwhy is it this Democrat acts more like a Republican than most Republicans ? Pat what Democrats would be like if they were wired like conservatives inside, but just held different political views.

Excellent commentary about the MSM and their bloated view of their purported importance.
