Rep. Pete King Strikes Back at NYT Swipe Against Muslim Hearings

The New York Times took a verbal punch at Rep. Pete King for his planned hearings on the radicalization of Muslims living in the United States. And the New Republican punched back at the Gray Lady in an interview with The Hill.

Pete King, New York Times, Muslims“The New York Times is just basically being a mouthpiece for political correctness,” said King, incoming chairman of the House Homeland Security Committee. “These are very legitimate hearings.”

King has criticized the Obama administration strongly for its effort to close the Guantanamo Bay detention facility for suspected terrorists and try them in civilian courts.

“I’m certainly not going to take any political advice or direction from The New York Times,” he says. “I have more contempt for The New York Times than anything or anyone I can think of. People follow what I say. I’m outspoken, but I can back up everything I say. I am what I am, and people seem to like it. I’m at peace with myself.”
