Kathy Barks Hoffman (AP) jumps the shark with “racist” claims
Cross-posted on Right Michigan at www.RightMichigan.com. The mainstream media in Michigan has officially flown off the tracks. The AP’s top statewide writer, Kathy Barks Hoffman in particular has lost every last hint of objectivity and has reduced herself to playing excuse maker for Democratic campaigns.
