Unlike Other Outlets, Ed Show Notes That Many Of Boehner's "150 Economists" Endorsed Bush Tax Cuts Or Used Extreme Rhetoric

Blog ››› ››› MEDIA MATTERS STAFF

As Media Matters has noted, several media outlets have uncritically reported on a letter sent by House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) to President Obama signed by "150 economists" who support Boehner's spending cut proposal. But unlike these news outlets, MSNBC's Thomas Roberts, guest hosting The Ed Show, pointed out that "at least 46 economists from Boehner's letter called the 2003 Bush tax cuts 'fiscally responsible,' and several of Boehner's 150 economists have used extreme rhetoric to attack President Obama."
