Hours After Death, MSNBC, CNN Tout Bush’s ‘Racial Animus,’ Willie Horton


[See NewsBusters for more.] Just hours after George H.W. Bush passed away, MSNBC and CNN felt the need to immediately jump to Willie Horton and the legacy of Bush’s 1988 ad against Michael Dukakis. During live coverage Saturday morning, MSNBC analyst Eddie Glaude insisted, “We have to bring up with Willie Horton.” Glaude sneered, “Dukakis was leading and then that ad started running. And the way in which he appealed to racial animus.”  He attacked the just-dead President: “So, there’s a way in which he would do anything to get elected.” Finally, he added some nice words: “his commitment to the country, we can disagree with the policies, but one thing we can't question it and that is his loyalty to the country.”
