NYT's Zernike: Tea Party = racist

Clarice Feldman
Timothy Carney at the Washington Examiner takes on Kate Zernike's opinion posing as news story about yesterday's rally, concluding:
[S]he ends with this conclusion:

Even if Tea Party members are right that any racist signs are those of mischief-makers, even if Glenn Beck had chosen any other Saturday to hold his rally, it would be hard to quiet the argument about the Tea Party and race.

Which, when you think about it, is a refreshing dose of honesty: No matter what you do, Tea Partiers, Kate Zernike will call you racist.

Thomas Lifson adds: Zernike is the primary Times reporter assigned to the Tea Party beat, and she has a history of deprecation.
