MSNBC Hammers Bush for Going Along With Reagan’s ‘Discredited’ Tax Cut Mythology


[See NewsBusters for more.] Though there have been many nice tributes recounting the life and legacy of George H.W. Bush, there’s also been the typically nasty moments one might expect from journalists in the liberal media. On Saturday night, during a two hour-long edition of Hardball, former Newsweek editor Jonathan Alter attacked then-Vice President Bush for going along with Ronald Reagan’s “discredited by history” tax cut policy. Alter blamed the early rival of Reagan for not standing up: “Part of it was his own making because what he called voodoo economics, he then under Reagan bought into this kind of discredited idea now, discredited by history.”
