NY Rep. Peter King: ‘I Have Nothing But Contempt’ For The New York Times | Talking Points Memo

Rep. Peter King (R-NY) reeeeally doesn’t like the New York Times.

In an interview with The Hill, King responded to an editorial printed in the Times over the weekend that rebuked King for his plans to hold hearings on the “radicalization” of American Muslims. “I’m absolutely delighted that The New York Times would attack me,” King said of the article. “I have nothing but contempt for them. They should be indicted under the Espionage Act. … The New York Times is just basically being a mouthpiece for political correctness.”The editorial, from January 1, calls the hearings “disturbing” and a “sweeping slur on Muslim citizens.”
