S.E. Cupp Blasts ‘Liberal’ New York Times for Marijuana Editorial

‘The New York Times would very much like the rest of the country to get with the Times and get cool and get hip to this thing that is changing’

Possible New 'View' Host S.E. Cupp Slams 'Liberal' NYT for Pot Editorial (NewsBusters)

Possible new View co-host S.E. Cupp got a tryout on Monday for the token conservative slot on the morning program. Wasting no time, the conservative commentator got in a fight with Whoopi Goldberg over the New York Times's endorsement of federally legalized marijuana. After Goldberg described herself as "very, very, very happy" with the Times, Cupp shot back, "Luckily, it is not up to the New York Times, a New York City liberal paper, to decide what everyone around the country does."

Overriding her possible future co-host, Cupp continued, "It's a much better idea for the states to be laboratories of democracy and decide 'we are a state that wants to legalize this. Our neighbors disagree and they're allowed to do that.'" Deriding the editorial, she added, "The New York Times would very much like the rest of the country to get with the Times and get cool and get hip to this thing that is changing."
