How desperate can the Wall

Daniel Radosh

How desperate can the Wall St. Journal get? Here they cry double standard because remarks Ramsey Clark made about Jesus did not provoke the same outcry that Jerry Falwell's comments about Mohammed did. But even from reading only the WSJ's account, it's obvious that Clark isn't calling Jesus a terrorist (which is what Jer said about Mohammed), he's saying, awkwardly, "Anyone who calls Mohammed a terrorist could just as easily call Jesus a terrorist, if willfully misreading scripture is your bag of tricks." And is it worth pointing out that for all the media's left wing bias, it's Falwell who gets on 60 Minutes in the first place, while Clark is reduced to holding press conferences that no one covers.
