Lefty Hack Charles Cooper of CBS Calls Healthcare Skeptics “Teabaggers”

CBS News, the TV network of disgraced former anchor Dan Rather, doesn’t even pretend anymore to not be siding with Big Government instead of backing the right of patients to choose their own healthcare. (Of course, it would be better yet if CBS just reported the news instead of cheering for one side or the other.)

Noel Sheppard of NewsBusters reports that blogger Charles Cooper, an editor for, referred to opponents and skeptics of ObamaCare at a townhall meeting using the derogatory term “teabaggers.”

Not surprisingly, Cooper’s blog posts are fairly consistently idiotic.

If the people who ran CBS had any integrity they would fire Cooper immediately. Let him fulminate and agitate against the ordinary Americans he despises somewhere else, such as maybe DailyKos, where he would seem fairly moderate by comparison to the kooks who post on and operate that site.
