This week's Mainstream Media Scream features Michael Eric Dyson, a Georgetown University sociology professor who is a regular fill-in host on MSNBC, bashing Supreme Court Associate Justice Clarence Thomas after the decision to gut the Voting Rights Act.
A guest on Martin Bashir's MSNBC show Tuesday following the court's decision, Dyson said: "Clarence Thomas's actions here today, though consistent, though tragic to me, are even more so in light of the bulk of decisions he's rendered in the name of a judicial vote on the Supreme Court. A symbolic Jew has invited a metaphoric Hitler to commit holocaust and genocide upon his own people."
Media Research Center Vice President of Research Brent Baker explains our pick: "Even after this vicious, race-based smear, David Gregory brought Dyson aboard Sunday's 'Meet the Press' as a panelist. NBC News journalists have no credibility to decry the supposed extremism on Fox News when they reward such contemptible hate speech against a Supreme Court justice."
Rating: Five out of five screams.
