Daily Beast's Peter Beinart excoriates Matt Drudge
et al., for 'disgusting' response to Obama's
Morehouse commencement speech

Beinart noted that Matt Drudge manufactured a headline quote that President Obama didn't say, but that wasn't the worst of it.
In other words, Obama gave exactly the kind of tough-love, individual-responsibility speech that conservatives claim African-American liberals don’t give. The students at Morehouse responded with thunderous applause. Drudge and Boyle responded by calling Obama a whiny race-baiter. Makes you wonder whether maybe, just maybe, they’re less interested in the black poor than in using their plight to demonize black political leaders.
