BREAKING: Bill O’Reilly Has Possibly Lied About A Few Things

Liar? Yes, duh.
Here’s a story nobody could have predicted: Bill O’Reilly is a big fat liar. Again. And yes, we’re still reeling from the devastating breaking news too. The guy who claimed to have won Peabody awards that were in fact Polk awards that were in fact not awarded to him or for his work at all has told some untruths about his journalism experience. Say it ain’t so! Read more on BREAKING: Bill O’Reilly Has Possibly Lied About A Few Things…
 

CNN’s Don Lemon: If Bill Cosby Rapes You, Just Bite His Dick

Rape prevention tips
NOTE: Just so you know, we’re going to talk about dick-biting. This is not by choice; it was forced upon us by CNN’s Don Lemon. So if you have a problem with dick-biting, you should lay back and think about the weather, because it turns out that dick-biting is also an excellent way for women to prevent rape. So really, this is a Public Service Announcement, and if you are someone who would like to not be raped, you need to keep reading. It’s for your own good.

John McCain Said Jon Stewart Often ‘Absolutely Wrong.’ That May Have Been A Bad Idea (Video)

Oh, it is ON
On Fox News recently, John McCain told Howard Kurtz that Jon Stewart was unfair to Republicans, but that it didn’t matter because Stewart is merely one of those lying late-night comedians: “When he says things that are absolutely wrong he gets away with it … It is what it is. I frankly have no beef with late night comedians who make fun of politicians. That’s the nature of the business.” Well Jon Stewart will not let this aggression stand, man.

Fox’s Brit Hume: Chris Christie Only Seems Like A Bully If You Think With Your Vagina

Here’s one for the “compelling explanations” file: On Fox News on Sunday (but not Fox News Sunday, that’s different), Brit Hume was ready to mansplain away that whole crazy “Chris Christie is a vindictive bully” thing. Turns out, that is all a matter of perception that depends a great deal on whether you are a gyno-American! On Fox’s Media Buzz, host Howard Kurtz asked if Christie’s political prospects would be damaged by the perception that he’s a bully. Nah, mang, said Hume, Christie isn’t a bully at all: “I have to say that in this sort of feminized atmosphere in which we exist today, guys who are masculine and muscular like that in their private conduct and are kind of old-fashioned tough guys run some risks.” Why, it is getting so bad with all the vagina in here that the great American tradition of pursuing petty vendettas against your enemies (and delaying paramedics, too — never forget the delayed paramedics) gets called “bullying.” It’s a sad day when raging American revenge-boners can’t do what must be done just because some little ladies in the media think waving your dick around isn’t politically correct.

  Seriously Howard Kurtz STFU

I Did Yoga With Ben Bradlee’s Daughter-In-Law And She Didn’t Even Take Off Her Top

Last month, at our sister site Terrible News For Terrible People Dot Com, we brought you the story “Howard Kurtz Is A Dumb Asshole.” In it, we wondered why exactly media critic Howard Kurtz, currently at Fox News, had taken it upon himself to play Facebook Picture Scold about the beautiful portraits of Pari Bradlee, a yoga instructor who has never done anything to anybody except have the gall to marry legendary Washington Post editor Ben Bradlee’s son.

Howard Kurtz Appoints Himself Chief Constabulary Of The Islamic Religious Police

Prepare to clutch your pearls, wonketeers. We have on our hands a tawdry display of vile sexuality that absolutely DEMANDS to be shown to the world. It seems that a politician errr, a journalist the private-citizen daughter-in-law of a retired journalist has put up some super-racy photos on the Facebooks! Gasp! and bring me a cool mint julep for my sensibilities have been affronted. And Howard Kurtz is ON THE CASE! Don’t remember who Howard Kurtz is? He used to be the host of CNN’s Reliable Sources, a teevee show dedicated to talking about the media, whereby media elites would talk to other media elites on the teevee about media folks on teevee and in journamilism. Apparently the show name Circle Jerk was already taken. After like a million years, he decided to jump ship for Fox News because apparently he was unable to express his full magnitude of dickishness at CNN. Fresh off getting his ass so fired from Daily Beast, Kurtz is fitting into his new role at Fox News nicely. Rather than report on actual news (you know, debt ceiling, Syria, immigration reform, Miley Cyrus), Kurtz bizarrely decided to attack Pari Bradlee, the daughter-in-law of respected Washington Post journalist Ben Bradlee: Her new [Facebook] profile picture, in a Swiss-cheese bra that leaves little to the imagination and long black leather sleeves and briefs, is so revealing that it drew a torrent of breathless comments. In another just-posted photo she is nude, shot from the back, twisting one arm behind her. Egads! We shall have to sexplore this unseemly graphic XXXXX-rated facebook stuff!  Read more on Howard Kurtz Appoints Himself Chief Constabulary Of The Islamic Religious Police…

Dana Milbank Moves To Op-Ed Page, Threatens ‘Humor Blogging’

We shouldn’t expect anything weird to be tacked onto this nice little Howard Kurtz profile about how Time is somehow currently profitable despite utter irrelevance, correct? OH GOD: “The Washington Post has a new op-ed columnist.” Yes, if Krauthammer can be entrusted with lots of money to turn in a logic-hating column every week, why can’t the other special-needs people at the Post, such as Dana Milbank? But what could be even worse? “[Milbank] says he will still write some sketches online and contribute to a Post humor blog.” A POST HUMOR BLOG? Oh sweet Obamar liberation-theology Jesus, thank you for the easy Wonkette material. Read more on Dana Milbank Moves To Op-Ed Page, Threatens ‘Humor Blogging’…

Nancy Pelosi Will Kill The Crap Out Of Robert Gibbs, As Soon As She Figures Out Who He Is

Ha ha, remember when Robert Gibbs said that the Democrats would probably lose control of Congress, if they didn’t shape up? Well, it appears that this news eventually filtered back to the Democrats who still (for the moment) run the House, particularly one Nancy Pelosi, and she and they are pissed and will cut a dry, pudgy Southern motherfucker.

Four-Star General Lara Logan Upset With Fellow Journalist’s Lack of Military Service

Rolling Stone war journalist Michael Hastings was on Howard Kurtz’s Sunday chat show to talk about doing journalism for real, instead of just writing neo-con combat fantasies for the Washington Post op-ed pages. But what did CBS News’ battlefield babe Lara Logan think of Hastings for reporting what General Stanley McChrystal and his senior staff said? “Michael Hastings has never served his country the way McChrystal has,” she said. What? Read more on Four-Star General Lara Logan Upset With Fellow Journalist’s Lack of Military Service…

Did the Media Fail Helen Thomas By Letting Her Be In the Media?

Legendary White House Crone Helen Thomas got herself pushed into retirement finally, at age 89, over a bizarre outburst into a rabbi’s video camera about how the Israeli Jews need to go “back [to] Poland, Germany,” etc. Was it the White House press corps’ fault for letting the increasingly shrill lady keep yelling her Democratic Underground sermons at whatever WH spokesperson? Maybe! Read more on Did the Media Fail Helen Thomas By Letting Her Be In the Media?… Read more on Did the Media Fail Helen Thomas By Letting Her Be In the Media?…

Today’s Hard-Hitting Profile of a Washington Twitter User Features Chuck Todd

Following the New York Times magazine feature on DC cut-and-paster Mike Allen is no easy job, so Washington Post media typist Howard Kurtz had to do a whole story on Chuck Todd — even though Todd is not primarily known for forwarding some links to his BCC list. Who is Chuck Todd, anyway, if not Mike Allen? Nobody knows for sure, but the important two points — he is tired from whatever he does, he is tweeting — are quickly, savagely nailed by Kurtz in a quick, savage news lede that will soon be known as a classic of the dead form.

CNN’s new anchorman, RedState turd Erick Erickson, is very sorry for calling David Souter a “goat-fucking child molester” because, uh, people are so offended by Erickson’s dumb bullshit that they yelled at his wife! (The nerve!) So, what Erick Erickson means is, he’s sorry that you were offended by his blog, which after all is just a blog!

Howard Kurtz Will Tell You What Happened On David Letterman Last Night!

Here is Howard Kurtz, official professional media critic of both the Washington Post and CNN, doing some important, trenchant analysis, as one would expect of all esteemed journalistic savants in his position: Twittering snide, resentful barbs about the level of difficulty in television comedian David Letterman’s questions to Barack Obama last night, on the Late Show. David Letterman clapped when his guest Barack Obama came onstage, guys! Howard Kurtz shall grade this human’s journalistic skills as an “F-“, he will. Tut tut, Letter-man!

Washington Post Continues To Be Great Journalistic Newspaper

Ha ha Washington Post. How will they make money during this damnable Internet Age? Masturbation videos about beer? Selling information and brokering access to rich lobbyists over wine at the publisher’s home? Maybe somehow loving war even more? Such a quandary. Until they come up with a new long-term business plan, though, the temporary strategy will just be to pour buckets of Prozac into the printing presses.

RIP: ‘Mouthpiece Theater,’ 2009-2009

Man, the top brass at the Washington Post are killing the everlasting shit out of Dana Milbank and Chris Cillizza’s horrific web gag “Mouthpiece Theater,” and not very discreetly! Both Cillizza and in-house arbiter of all that is true and fair in media, Howard Kurtz, have written long pieces about this Internet “experiment” gone bad, badder, and ultimately bad enough that Washingtonpost.com began choking to death on this ball-gag of experimental video-journalism.

White House Press Corps MUST KNOW The Facts: Does Robert Gibbs Love Them?

It is the end of the 100 days, at some point soon! We do not know the exact day because January 20 + 100 = January 120?? (SOMEONE ASK NATE SILVER.) So the next week will be a crucial time for the Media to reflect on what has been accomplished in this arbitrary time period, for no reason, except that apparently new presidents are not allowed to do anything important when it ends. Let’s see how the White House Press Corps is reflecting about itself and its rare opportunity to ask the president’s top spokesman direct questions about anything, every day.

Howie Kurtz Compares Bad NH Coverage to Epic Natural Disaster

Yes, Howie, the media got all self- important about Barry and blew it on New Hamsters election night.

Kurtz on Malkin: The Lighter Side of Crypto-Fascism

When the Post’s Howard Kurtz emailed us to let us know that he was writing about Michelle Malkin, we were excited. After all, not nearly enough is known about this reclusive, media-shy shrinking violet. And if there’s anyone worthy of being taken seriously, it’s Malkin. From her groundbreaking book on Japanese Internment, Those Nip Fucks Deserved It, to her recent work exposing as fictional the Iraqi police officer/AP source who was later disappeared for talking to the press, Malkin is an intellectual powerhouse whose views need to be heard and publicized.
