One fewer reason to watch Lawrence O’Donnell

Dear Lawrence O’Donnell:

It’s one thing to launch an ad hominem attack against your ideological foes at Reason Magazine for their coverage of the “Save Our Schools Rally.”  It’s another thing entirely when your ad hominem attack is not even true.

Yours truly,

Andrew Michael Hallman

The low down is that O’Donnell showed Reason’s coverage of the event on his show on MSNBC and then went into a tirade because “right-wing websites” (a category in which he includes Reason, much to the surprise of its staff) scrutinize teachers but never police officers. The claim is especially odd given that Reason dedicated the whole of its July issue to the criminal justice system, which included several stories criticizing police.
