‘Mother Jones’ Reporter Calls Out Reid’s ‘McCarthyite’ Koch Brothers Rhetoric

‘I think it’s a very dicey strategy by Reid ... the Democrats have really gone overboard in hammering the Kochs in the way that they have’

‘Mother Jones’ Reporter Calls Out Harry Reid’s ‘Almost McCarthyite’ Koch Brothers Rhetoric (The Daily Caller)

On the heels  of Jon Stewart’s mockery of Harry Reid, comes another strong rebuke of Reid’s Koch Brothers rhetoric — this time from Daniel Schulman, a senior editor at Mother Jones, and author of the new book, Sons of Wichita: How the Koch Brothers Became America’s Most Powerful and Private Dynasty.

During a recent interview on NPR’s Fresh Air, host Terry Gross asked the reporter and author about Reid’s over-the-top attacks, and Schulman responded, saying

You know, I think it’s a very dicey strategy by Reid. He has actually come out and called the Koch Brothers un-American. Now, that’s kind of an absurd thing to say. And it’s almost McCarthyite rhetoric. From my vantage point, I think the Democrats have really gone overboard in hammering the Kochs in the way that they have. I’m not sure that this is going to be a very successful  election strategy.
