  • If you google “Stephen Lerner”–the former SEIU employee who made some rather inflammatory remarks at a liberal conference held this past weekend at Pace University, as we have reported–would it surprise you that only a handful of opinion blogs (most of them conservative) are covering the jaw-dropping speech in which he said:

    We have an entire economy that is built on debt and banks so the question would be what would happen if we organized homeowners in mass to do a mortgage strike if we get half a million people to agree it would literally cause a new finical crisis for the banks not for us we would be doing quite well we wouldn’t be paying anything…

    …So I think we weed out a very simple strategy: how do we bring down the stock market, how do we bring down their bonuses, how do we interfere with their ability to, to be rich.

    With the exception of the Washington Post–which we’ll get to in a moment–why isn’t the mainstream media covering the story of an avowed leftist whose life ambition at the moment includes bringing down the US economy?
