SHOCK: Media Matter’s Eric Boehlert Mocks Mother Of Slain American in Benghazi Terror Attack
Media Matters, the left-leaning media watchdog based in Washington D.C., is prone to employ the controversial and opinionated. Recently one of their senior fellows, MJ Rosenberg, was forced to step down based on a history of harsh, anti-semitic remarks. Now it appears the line has been crossed again.
Senior Media Maters Fellow Eric Boehlert has seemingly mocked Patricia Smith, the mother of slain State Department employee Sean Patrick Smith, who recently blamed President Barack Obama for her son’s death.
“Until I find out anything, Obama killed my son, my only child, the one who was going to take care of me when I’m old,” Patricia Smith said on CNN this week.
Boehlert took to Twitter to comment on Smith and her sorrow at losing her only son, writing this Saturday afternoon:
The tweet seems to imply that Mrs. Smith has been getting her information from Fox News, one of Media Matters’ favorite targets, and that her conclusion is therefore invalid.
Fox News, along with TheBlaze, have broken a substantial number of stories on the Benghazi cover-up and consequential failures of the administration that cost four Americans their lives.
Others on Twitter also took to mocking Smith’s loss, following Boehert’s lead. Some referred to the grieving Smith as “stupid” and a “poor pathetic uninformed person.”
The tweet has since been deleted from Boehlert’s profile without a retraction or apology message.
Boehlert has recently tweeted that the Navy SEALs “Don’t have guts.”
TheBlaze has reached out to Mr. Boehlert for clarification.
