BJ Writer Accuses Klein of Wanting to ‘Kill Black Babies’

BigJournalism writer Lori Ziganto wrote an inflammatory post over the weekend that sounded like a National Enquirer headline: She said WaPo‘s Ezra Klein “supports killing black babies.”

The attack came in reaction to a Friday post by Klein about taxpayer cost of unwanted pregnancies.

“Setting the horrid spin aside, his concluding paragraph is vile,” writes Ziganto, a self-described “icky conservative” who home schools her 7-year-old daughter. It’s in that paragraph, where Klein says, “It’s somewhat cold to put it in these terms, but taxpayers end up bearing a lot of the expense for unintended pregnancies among people without the means to care for their children,” that Ziganto finds his alleged “support for killing black babies.” Not surprisingly, Ziganto concludes that Klein’s idea is “revolting and sick.”

We’ve reached out to Klein for comment. Maybe he’ll even respond.
