The Daily Caller Draws Journo Ire

On Friday The Daily Caller stirred up sticky emotions within the left wing media when they tweeted what some felt was poor taste. The topic: The 70-year-old Akron diner owner who died from a heart attack Friday just three hours after meeting President Obama. The body was likely still warm when The Daily Caller made the crack.

Were they trying to antagonize? Take a look.

Daily Caller: “Obama might have lost a vote in Ohio.” They linked to this, a story by Justin Green that was a mere 93 words and packed with basics and a quote from the Akron Beacon Journal.

HuffPost political reporter Sabrina Siddiqui: “Show some class.”

TPM‘s Brian Beutler: “And perhaps some side boob.”

Mother Jones‘ soon-to-be full-time Washington-based Social Media guru and National Security Correspondent Adam Weinstein remarked, “You don’t have to be a loyal opposition. You don’t even have to be respectful. But can you at least be humane? @DailyCaller”

And the DNC’s mouthy Social Media coordinator Greg Greene weighed in, saying, “They could do worse. They could send Neil Munro to cover the funeral.”
