‘LA Times’ columnist joins ‘Wash Post’ columnist on Israel junket paid for by rightwing lobby group

on 1 Comments

LA Times’s Jonah Goldberg makes the same “full disclosure” that Jennifer Rubin did in the Washington Post. I’m going to Disneyland on the tab of the Emergency Committee for Israel, Bill Kristol’s group.

So two important mainstream newspapers are being subsidized by a rightwing group whose leaders supported the disastrous Iraq war. And you thought the blogosphere was whack… Where did these folks get their money, do you wonder?

(Oh, and don’t forget: Rubin successfully mau-mau’d good Steve Clemons of the New America Foundation as an Israel “basher.” What planet is this, and will someone wake me when it’s over?)

Also, these people seem to think full disclosure inoculates them. I had a lawyer girlfriend once who busted me on the same claim. Just because you tell someone you’re going to run them over with a truck doesn’t make it any better when you do!
