Marking the hundredth anniversary of the 16th amendment which made way for the federal income tax, MRC Vice
President for Business and Culture Dan Gainor appeared on The Blaze TV's
"Wilkow!" to discuss wealthy journalists who push for higher taxes.
"Ten million, fifteen
million they make, you know, a couple million ... and I'm OK with it,
that's the free market. But then don't turn around and use the platform
that you get making that money, to try to make you and me to pay more
taxes," Gainor said.
you really scratch the surface, most journalists are statists. They
believe in big government, and so they're reporting--they're always
looking for a government solution ... they never look at the private
sector, they never look at non profits. They don't believe that those
are viable solutions" Gainor observed.
This interview was in
response to a report done by the Media Research Center's Business and
Media Institute, which profiled "Seven Millionaire Journalists who Cheer for Higher Taxes."
