Bloomberg News Slimes Tea Partiers

Theresa Ghilarducci is a whacko lefty professor who wants the government to take over your retirement savings're too stupid and Social Security works to damn well.

But Bloomberg News wants you to know that Tea Partiers are crazy...they sent Prof. Ghilarducci death threats.
Retirement policy wonks don't usually get hate mail. But in 2008, Teresa Ghilarducci, an economics professor at the New School for Social Research, proposed replacing 401(k) plans and their income tax break with a mandated government savings plan for all workers. The blowback from some Tea Partyers was so intense that the school's chief of security gave her his cell phone number.
That early mention is all we know, there is no specific info on the death threats and we don't know why they attribute the threats to Tea Partiers.  Did someone call up and say "Hi, I'm a Tea Partier and I want to kill you"?  Or perhaps reporter Carla Fried is just showcasing her biases.  Maybe Fried will reveal her sources so as to put to rest any doubt that a bonafide, self-identifying Tea Partier threatened Prof. Ghilarducci. 

Or perhaps not, this Al Hunt's Bloomberg News after all.
