Media Renew Assault on Jeff Sessions
Attorney General Jeff Sessions came under a renewed barrage of racially-charged attacks from the left-leaning press this week.
New York Magazine kicked off the attacks by including the Attorney General in a sprawling 12,000-word 19-author cover story on people and institutions, including Breitbart News, it considers part of a “the extremely reactionary, burn-it-down-radical, newfangled far right.” New York Magazine also included an interview with Breitbart News Editor-in-Chief Alex Marlow in which he defended Breitbart’s independence and integrity in a different section of the feature.
The anthology article, first published Sunday, is festooned with an ominous “evidence board” type image linking Sessions and other administration officials to dozens of real and imagined foes, including cartoon characters and “Nazi Furries,” explained later in the article to be “swastika fetishists” who dress up in furry animal suits.
