"Cooper: why the left loses"


          

If you believe the Daily Howler, Eric Alterman, and most of the rest of those who critique the media when they say in large part the left press does it to themselves... once more I ask you to consider well Marc Cooper who starts his new gig at The Huffington Post this week.

Is it simply that NOBODY reads his blog? This week, the good buddy of Hitchens and Horowitz plugs a book attacking big liberal doners; a sort of dressed up version of O"Reilly's Soros rants. The Daily Howler was going on this week about the absurd fake story about Gore being the guy who started the Willie Horton ad. Yep, I remember the first place I heard that one... a Marc Cooper collum.

Cooper's attacks on the right tend to be vauge and general, his attacks on Democrats below the belt and personal. When the Dem front runner kicked off her campaign last year, he told his readership he wished her "a miserable experience."

Yet, that is who will be sizing things up at a major "liberal" website.

Don't say STILL BEN didn't warn you....

Can't even rely on liberal websites to employ liberals to review liberals? Can't wait.

I haven't followed Cooper. Have you tried to contact Arianna in some way to voice your concerns?

Yep, we need to remind people what an asshole Marc Cooper is. He and his pals came very close to destroying Pacifica radio. I still remember when that gasbag was on KPFK during the 2000 election and he trashed Al Gore all the time, bringing on such "real" democrats as Pat "the Cross Eyed Creep" Cadell and SLEAZY Susan Estrich. Got so sick of their constant attacks on "Al Whore".

I have a feeling Cooper has long had his been Kissing Ariana's butt. He was a big supporter during her transistional period from Gingrich disiple to born again lefty. She has already published him on the issues Cooper might have something relevant to say (though I have my doubts) like politics in Central America. And let's not forget, Huffington has her own dubious axe to grind with Hillary, and was in the foolish "Gore and Bush are the same" camp in 2000.

It's interesting you mention Cooper bringing on the Fox News Dems. I've often challenged him on why hey pretends the like of Conason doesn't exist;why he never debated them. When challenged, Cooper just calls you a Clinton ass kisser and an idiot and runs away. Cooper wrote a truely brutal attack on David Brock when "Blinded By The Right" came out, which quoted Ann Coulter in a favorable context.

It will be interesting to see how far Cooper pushes his Dem hate over at the Huffington Post.

peice on Hillary today on The Huffington Post. She manages to call Mo Dowd a femininist.
Hillary is the fairist of game, but this is the kind of thing The Daily Howler has so well taught us to avoid; nothing about Clinton's programs, propasals, or promises. It's all about how She doesn't like her laugh and isn't being entertained by the campaign.

This proabably doesn't have anything to do with Cooper; but it mirrors his playbook.
Ehreneich, a sometimes excellent writer and Nader supporter, takes no responsability for 2000 and echos the cheap shots of the MSM on the Dems candidates. Obama doesn't do anything "to threaten white America." I'd like to hear some suggestions!

on "Eat The Press" was very much what you expect, the black mayor of Oakland
vilified for supporting Hillary. Black Dems always draw a special contempt from
Cooper.

These Eat the Press pieces, so far, are not being featured very prominatly on the
site.

top of the page. I am really getting tired of getting moderated out, especially when I make no inflammatory or even ad hominem remarks. Yeah I may get snarky.
Fuck them, glorified blog commenters who mostly couldn't even make the grade at the Bartcop forum.
