It’s been just over a week since CRAPITALISM: Liberals Who Make Millions Swiping Your Tax Dollars author Jason Mattera released a video of him attempting to interview disgraced IRS official Lois Lerner.
Still sizzling, Mattera’s story is seeing international attention from the Canadian-based Sun News Network.
“I’ve got to say, it can be fearful at times, but I have to applaud you for chasing this woman down the street,” said Sun News contributor Marissa Semkiw. “But there are a lot of people saying you’ve painted Lois Lerner as a sympathetic character. How would you respond to that?” she asked. Semkiw was referring to Bob Beckel’s on-air challenge (that he’s subsequently walked back) and Greg Gutfeld’s nonsensical criticism (comparing the Lerner video to a political ad) as well as his bizarre on-air antics (giggling like Jabba the Hutt’s pet as Beckel threatened Mattera with physical violence.)
Mattera dismissed the notion of pushback, noting that the “criticism” has stemmed from a very small number of people only.
“Most people think that Lois Lerner should be behind bars,” Mattera responded. “She doesn’t come across as sympathetic. Sympathetic and innocent people don’t flee from cameras. They don’t flee from media. They don’t plead the fifth; twice she pled the fifth.”
“They don’t stonewall Congressional investigators.”
Lois Lerner “harassed” innocent Americans “during an election year. And these were people who were just trying to exercise their constitutional right to participate in an election,” Mattera added. “If anything,” people tell me that they “wish there were media who would hound Lois Lerner on a daily basis, because that is their job.”
