Daily Caller Reporter Gotchas All Over Will Ferrell And Zach Galifianakis’s Face


Blah blah blah, Daily Caller wants to trip up some Hollywood ‘lites with policy gotchas, who cares. Just skip to 1:16, when the Daily Douchebag starts a question with “What about the president recently saying if you’ve got a business, you didn’t build that, somebody else did?” Ferrell has had enough derp and tries to just get away from this sad little man. But look at the contempt on Zach Galifianakis’s face as he realizes the complete and utter bullshit of the very foundation of the question. He is ready to punch the Daily Caller “senior video reporter” in the cock. He is probably going to murder a hooker later with the force of his rage-fucking. That is all. [DailyCaller]

      In a just world Ballsy would have emailed to a few frat buddies and it would have died a quiet death. In this world it will become a major Fox talking point and spark massive amounts of butt-hurt on ppl who don't understand the funny.

        I don't know, even they might realize that the way Ferrell carefully explained "I'm an actor" made the reporter look really stupid (because he is).

    "punch the Daily Caller “senior video reporter” in the cock. "
    Was Zach carrying a microscope with him?

    1. NorthStarSpanx

      And it certainly needed more single arm motioning to affect his punctuation. Or Ricky Bobby not knowing what to do with his hands once he realized the camera was on him.

  2. gullywompr

    One thing's for sure: Daily Caller hasn't built their own journalism organization. I don't know what they have built, exactly, but they didn't build that.

    So they're still trying to pretend Obama meant something he clearly didn't if you listen the immediate prior sentence?

      1. SorosBot

        And the internet was totally developed by the private sector, government didn't help at all! (Just ignore that pesky ARPANET and CERN).

        1. Generation[redacted]

          Those government bureaucrats at ARPANET were standing in the way for years. Once we got rid of them, the private sector was able to build the Internet entirely out of market forces and tax cuts.

    1. freakishlywrong

      Yep. And now apparently, Obama has also "gutted" Medicare. I can't take the next two months of this shit.

    Did this guy tell Ricky Bobby or Fat Jesus that his name was Ball-ass-y? I think they could have really done more with that than any of the inane questions this fucktard has.

    1. Jus_Wonderin

      Well, they got my best bud let go after 29 years at American.

      After being "let go" his boss, the one that let him go said "I want you to stay on until the end of the month for the handover, as a favor to me."

      Reply: "Now, why would I do that?"

      ETA: Bain was involved.

      1. Chichikovovich

        That's a good reply. Though "Now that I'm an independent contractor, my time is money. I'd be happy to do it for an hourly rate equal to twice my previous salary" would have also earned points.

        1. BerkeleyBear

          And weirdly enough have been done happily by the guy who replaces the idiot MBA who cut all the senior engineers to save on salary and benefits, only later to realize the young (cheap ones) don't know dick and are about to launch aircraft/cars/satellites that will almost certainly not work.

          Not that I've seen anything like this in the last 30 years of corporate management brilliance in most high tech sectors.

    1. BerkeleyBear

      I also got the impression that he was trying to make sure whatever he said couldn't be construed as a serious response, for fear of becoming the subject of a Drudge Siren or TMZ exclusive on how his movies are SOCIALIST AGIT-PROP.

    2. An_Outhouse

      or he's wondering who the shitty comedian is, trying to punk Will Farrell. Should he play along? At first he thinks, yes, play along. Then he realizes the guy is kind of serious and this isn't a joke. And yet it is. Nobody can really explain it.

  5. DCBloom

    My husband is from the same small town as Zach, and coached his brother in soccer, and Zach in basketball when he was 8 or so.

    His family has a long history with the Democratic party in NC. He's the real deal

    1. valthemus

      Stop! Enough! I already want to bind Mr. Galifianakis to my bed with cling film so that we might commit wanton acts of NC17 naughtiness! You're just making it worse!

  6. JustPixelz

    When Farrell said "we" are actors and comedians, I assume he was including the actor portraying the reporter asking a comically ill-informed question.

  7. widestanceromance

    Wow. That guy looks really, really astute. You know he had no trouble stacking the boxes to get the banana hanging from the ceiling.

  8. SexySmurf

    Oh man, this is going to hurt Will Ferrell's chances of being elected to whatever political office I'm assuming he's running for because why else would anyone give a shit about what he thinks about politics.

    1. Generation[redacted]

      Yeah, once the fictional voters in his movie hear about this, he's going to be in real trouble alright!

  9. TootsStansbury

    I get the impression this quote is all they got. A quote taken so far away from context it is rendered devoid I'd meaning, you co- oh what the hell am I saying, that would mean there would have to be a grasp of reality.

  10. kittensdontlie

    With 'Bama and Biden ducking the media so astutely, noBallsy had to ask/answer the tough political questions of actors in a movie about a fictional congressional campaign. These questions had to be asked….who else could answer them???

  11. Goonemeritus

    Well finally the journalistic torch has been passed from Edward R. Murrow and broadcast news to a new generation of Internet giants. I just hope that we and Wonkette can rise to this new standard.

    1. BerkeleyBear

      Aspie/Autism libel. This dipshit can't tell reality from fiction. People with autism wouldn't think it was a funny set up to ask an actor about taxes, or really any sort of "gotcha" question. If they had a tax policy fixation (and I'm sure at least one out there does) they'd be lecturing the actor, and anyone else foolish enough to stop and listen.

      It isn't that people with autism can't be dicks, they just can't be insincere dicks.

      1. mookwrthwilson

        I thought he looked sincere…I thought he believed he was being a serious journalist asking Ron Burgundy and Alan from the Wolfpack about serious issues of the day.

  12. AncienReggie

    Hey! Those auto-start videos with sound lead people here at work to suspect my labor might not be as sedulous and incessant as I like to pretend it is. Overlords notice these things, you know.

    Just sayin.

  13. Tundra Grifter

    That joker is the "Senior Video Reporter?" When he sets up the ambush interview at the start, he gives new meaning to "dead pan." His eyes and face are lifeless. He'd put a speed freak to sleep.

    If he's the Senior, I sure wouldn't want to meet the intern. Unless she was real cute and blonde. With great legs. With a burning and ruthless ambition to get ahead.

    If today's media was covering Pearl Harbor, the headlines would be "Japs Deny Responsibility for Mystery Sinking of Pacific Fleet, Cite Barnacles; Navy Sending Team to Investigate: Could Take Months to Find Answers"

  15. MissTaken

    It's not easy being a 'Senior Video Reporter'. You have to look good on camera unlike the 'Senior Audio Reporter' who can just sit around eating donuts washed down with corn syrup all day.

  16. SoBeach

    Does someone just wake up one morning and think "I know! I'll follow celebrities around with a microphone and try to goad them into saying something stupid!"

    Sounds like a good plan. Until the celebrity wranglers find out who you are and make a point of drop kicking your ass out of every photo op.

  17. Tequila Mockingbird

    Why do all Young Neocons look alike? I’m serious… they all have that same nebbish, stuttering, prematurely-balding, pimple-faced, can’t-wait-to-get-laid-one-day look.

  18. IncenseDebate

    It used to be that balls were a cute and fun topic on Wonkette. Now this Ballasy guy ruined it.

  19. timbo71351

    Dude, you work for Tucker Fucking Carlson. Will Ferrell and Zach Galifianakiss are funny guys, who make millions of bucks per movie and have cool friends. They've won, no matter how many dumb-ass gotcha questions you ask.

  20. sullivanst

    Could there ever be a neater exhibition of the wingnuts' inability to distinguish reality from fantasy?

  21. Monsieur_Grumpe

    I am guessing the Daily Caller D-Nozzle really wanted to be a sports reporter but got kicked out for staring way too long at naughty bits in the locker room.

  22. Not_So_Much

    Jeebus, I foolishly clicked over to see if the comments understood 'humor'. Now I have dipshit and derrp all over me.

  23. djshay

    My state of North Carolina has done some really embarrassing things recently, but I'm uber proud of Zach being from here.

  24. thefrontpage

    When will this sad, lame, pathetic Daily Caller thing finally end? It's not really journalism, it's not really analysis, and it's not really anything. And what kind of idiot, moronic, stupid reporter asks government and politics policy questions–in a serious manner–to two comedic actors hawking and publicizing a movie comedy? Just stupid. If Ferrell or the other guy were actively involved in politics–say, publicly stating policy statements and actively working on campaigns or even running for office–fine, ask some policy questions. But when you are two comedic actors shilling for a goofy summer popcorn comedy movie–then a reporter just doesn't ask them serious policy questions. It's out of context. And—you don't ask obviously stupid policy questions. President Obama did not say that businessmen do not build businesses by themselves–that statement was taken out of context. He was merely saying that the government is there to help some people in some times in some instances–that's what he was saying. And that's it. He was not knocking businessmen who succeed. And every reporter for the Daily Caller, and every other news organization, should know that. Gawd almighty, people are getting stupid out there.

    Balls-less-ly also couldn't find a clit with a fucking flashlight, a magnifying glass and all night to do it.
