ANALYSIS: There’s Something Fishy About The (New) New Republic

I’ve been calling out transparent BS since before I could talk. I know it when I see it. The so-called game of “peek-a-boo”? A dirty lie. I preferred “Battleship.” Still do.

My sensors were flaring last week when I accidentally clicked on a link to the left-wing New Republic website, after mistaking it for one of my favorite middle-of-the-road blogs, freerepublic.com. Something didn’t sit right. Obviously, the content was atrocious. But then I looked at some of the bylines.

New Republic Coverage Excessive, Analysis Finds

Chris Hughes

The continuing media coverage of The New Republic fiasco is completely f*cking insane, a Free Beacon analysis has found. To paraphrase the great half-American orator Winston Churchill: Never has so much been written by so many for so few.

Even the New York Times Agrees: Sean Eldridge Is the Worst Candidate of 2014

A recent Free Beacon analysis concluded that Sean Eldridge, the Democrat running for Congress in New York’s 19th district, is the worst candidate of the 2014 cycle. On Friday, the New York Times endorsed our analysis. In a profile of Eldridge’s opponent, incumbent Rep. Chris Gibson (R., N.Y.), the Times described Eldridge as “a first-time Democratic candidate with a thin résumé and a thick wallet.”

There only one problem with the Times’ assessment. Eldridge may have a “thick wallet,” but it doesn’t belong to him. The money belongs to his husband, Chris Hughes, who made millions after being randomly selected to be Mark Zuckerberg’s roommate at Harvard. Hughes has already purchased two mansions in neighboring congressional districts in an effort to fulfill his husband’s political ambitions. When Eldridge loses in November, the couple will inevitably move somewhere else so he can run again.
