Indy’s Most Liberal?

Some are Tea Party folks just put out their list of “most liberal” reporters in Indianapolis.  They were debating posting something this weekend.  I will save them the trouble.    I came in at #7.   I guess this just means I will have to work harder next time.   On the plus side, I guess doing stuff like this is actually easier than getting out and working to make change.

*************

Here’s the bulk of the e-mail.

Below is a summary of tea party inputs and rankings:

Indy’s Ten Most Liberal Reporters

1- Mathew Tully, Indianapolis Star
2- Jim Shella, WISH-TV CH 8
3- Sheila Suess  Kennedy, Indianapolis Star
4-Dan Carpenter, Indianapolis Star
5-Kevin Rader, WTHR-TV CH 13
6-Mary Beth Schneider, Indianapolis Star
7-Abdul Hakim-Shabazz, Gadfly & Former Radio Jock*
8-Mary Milz, WTHR-TV CH 13
9-Mick Mauer, Indianapolis Business Journal
10-Steve Hammer, Nuvo

A “Liberal’ or “Progressive” subscribes to some or all of the following:

Anti-tea party, world government; weak local government; centralized state government; weak states’ rights; high progressive tax rates; pro Common Core; anti school vouchers; free universal health care; pro gun control; full rights to gay marriage; abortion without restriction; centralized economy; tax on hydrocarbon fuels; open international borders; lower national defense spending; and European Socialism.

*I take issue with the Gadfly part, since they don’t get paid!  I’m off to the bank this morning to make another deposit!

    I love how “anti-tea-party” is the 1st criteria for their definition of liberal. If you are not with us, you are against us!!!!

  • Indyernie

    I think Hammer should be insulted, he should hit the list right after Shella.

    I totally agree Rhonda. The fact that disagreeing with them is the #1 reason to be labeled liberal is exhibit A as to how lacking in seriousness this silly list effort is. And the other reasons they give, many are pretty silly sounding, vague and undefined as well.

    Amos Brown isn’t on the list?

  • Steve

    Wow Abdul. Congrats. They call you liberal? I hope that you can find a way to cope with that. As. long as the tea part gets to elect the candidates in the primary, the 30% democrats and the 40% independents will keep electing people who can find their way out of a room. Oh yea that was the liberal media that you now belong to that defeated poor Richard. My bad.

    Just how “pure” do you have to be to not make this list? Purely ignorant that is. The party are way way over on the right. Nuts!
