Judith Miller Knows Who To Blame For Her Crap Iraq War Reporting (Hint: Not Judith Miller)

Pure gender-neutral evil
Judith Miller, disgraced former propagandist for the Bush administration (and also former reporter for the New York Times) — now a Fox News contributor, OF COURSE — is still defending herself and the blood on her hands, with a new book, GRRRR. As if it weren’t bad enough that she spent a good part of last year defending poor Dick Cheney from the mean liberal media who can’t just get over that whole “they lied us into war” thing already, she also wants the world to know whose fault it was that she was in on the con job: Read more on Judith Miller Knows Who To Blame For Her Crap Iraq War Reporting (Hint: Not Judith Miller)…

Rolling Stone Sorry That Lying Bitch ‘Jackie’ Made Them Do Such Terrible Journalism

Nothing to see here, move along
Last year, Rolling Stone reported a shocking story about the epidemic of rape on college campuses, and specifically at the University of Virginia — one of 86 schools under federal investigation for its mishandling of rapes and sexual assaults on campus. The story focused on the alleged gang rape of a woman named Jackie at the Phi Kappa Psi fraternity. Naturally, because the story was freaking horrific, “legitimate” rape is very rare, and most so-called rape victims are lying, the media immediately called bullcrap on the report and devoted several weeks and a million column inches to proving the story was false, because if Jackie was lying, that means all allegations of rape are probably false too.

Smirking Thug Who Attacked Lady Subway Worker Was An NYPD Cop, Surprise!

It has not been a banner year for our armed public servants from the City of New York. When we last left them, they were executing a two-pronged strategy to protest Mayor Bill de Blasio’s alleged anti-cop rhetoric, first  hijacking the funeral of two murdered cops, then refusing to do their jobs. What did the horrible race-baiting, cop-hating demagogue de Blasio do to warrant these bold, courageous, and dangerous acts of protest and dissent? Well, 1) He ran in opposition to Stop and Frisk, the policy of stopping and searching pedestrians, which was agreed by both its supporters and detractors to result in racial profiling in practice, and 2) He had the temerity to say that he’d told his black son to exercise extra care when interacting with the police in the wake of the NYPD’s public execution of the unarmed and black Eric Garner. That it is flatly contradictory to simultaneously support profiling blacks as criminals and be offended at the suggestion that blacks should be conscious of being profiled as criminals doesn’t seem to bother the NYPD’s union or the rank-and-file officers it represents. Indeed, that’s how the logic of white supremacy tends to operate: it is not enough to oppress, but the victims of the oppression must feel quietly grateful to be oppressed.

Return Of The Revenge Of The Bride Of The Son Of Benghazi The Sequel Part Eleventy

Chipmunk-cheeked dimwit Lara Logan and her colleagues at 60 Minutes sure seem to have screwed the pooch in their explosive – in the same sense that diarrhea is sometimes explosive – report on BENGHAAAZI!!1! a couple of weeks back. Logan and her bosses have been doing a Nobama Apology Tour for a few days, culminating in last night’s Sorry Not Sorry “mistakes were made” correction, for featuring the story of security contractor Dylan Davies and his heroics during the consulate attacks. Except oopsie! It seems Davies was less than truthful about where he was and what he was doing while the consulate was being overrun. How did a seasoned war correspondent like Logan and her team of experienced news folk at the venerable 60 Minutes get suckered as if they were the local affiliate in Bumfuck, Oregon, buying footage of what they think is Bigfoot but turns out to be a guy in a gorilla suit? It wasn’t tough! Let’s sexplore. Read more on Return Of The Revenge Of The Bride Of The Son Of Benghazi The Sequel Part Eleventy…

AP Retracts Story Claiming Terry McAuliffe Did A Fraud Because He Did Not Do The Fraud

It’s perfectly understandable how someone might see the initials “TM” on a legal document and instantly think “candidate for governor of Virginia and former Clinton jerk Terry McAuliffe!” and then write a widely circulated story about how Terry McAuliffe did all the crimes, ever — that is, if “someone” was in the habit of cashing checks signed by Ghost Andrew Breitbart or some such “person.” However, we did not expect this kind of behavior from the Associated Press. Well! Guess who’s got two thumbs and is naive? Read more on AP Retracts Story Claiming Terry McAuliffe Did A Fraud Because He Did Not Do The Fraud…

Tina Brown As Bad At Charity As She Is At Running Magazines And Websites

Former wunderkind editor and Number One Zombie Princess Di Fangirl Tina Brown has had a Very Bad Week. First came Buzzfeed’s report that Barry Diller will finally push her out on her toned and shapely bottom, and now the New York Post has decided to publish a scurrilous report, titled “Tina Brown’s Charity Gave Out Just $10K,” explaining that her charity, the Women in the World Foundation, only gave out a single $10 thousand grant on its $1.2 million in receipts. That is some Sarah Palin-level grifting right there. OR IS IT? Read more on Tina Brown As Bad At Charity As She Is At Running Magazines And Websites…

Fox News Explains It Is Hard For Weiner To Get It Up For Terrorist Wife

In an attempt to out-stupid MoDo’s claim that Huma stays with Anthony because she’s just too Saudi Arabian to know better, Fox News would like to dumbsplain to you that though Huma is bitterly clinging, Weiner does not want to tap that ass anymore because of how she’s a Muslin who wants to destroy ‘Merica. Smart take! Read more on Fox News Explains It Is Hard For Weiner To Get It Up For Terrorist Wife…

American Government Propaganda is Not Actually Propaganda, Says Government Official

Congress has worse ratings than cockroaches, Genghis Khan, and Nickelback. More than half of Americans think that the country is heading in the wrong direction. Over half of Americans think of Edward Snowden as a whistle-blower rather than a traitor. Should the government: a) take a serious look at the country, its policies, and the general desires of the American people to consider how its institutions can better tailor their various goals and strategies to people’s needs or b) convince the American people that their opinions, needs, and desires are wrong. The answer, of course, is b) convince the American people that their opinions, needs, and desires are wrong.

How Is Obama Murdering Ronald Reagan With His Bare Black Hands Today?

Hey, did you guys hear this not at all completely hypothetical and fictional and made up (that is what “fictional” means) story about how Barack Obama is personally going to tear down Ronald Reagan’s childhood home with his bare black hands? So he can put his presidential library on it? Why would he even need a presidential library? What is he, some kind of “celebrity”? Oh, right, the story is hypothetical and fictional and made up and isn’t gonna happen? But Newsmax and Fox News and the conservative guy at Mediaite reported that it is? Imagine that. Here is the lede to Marti Lotman’s story in Newsmax. The University of Chicago Medical Center has announced plans to turn Ronald Reagan’s childhood home in Chicago into a parking lot for President Barack Obama’s library. Would you believe every single word in that lede is wrong? Whaaaaa? Read more on How Is Obama Murdering Ronald Reagan With His Bare Black Hands Today?…

CNN: Was Martin Luther King Jr Conservative? Some Say! But Others Don’t!

Look, we have found a single “article” that is a great example of everything wrong with journalism and a lot of things wrong with conservatism, ALL AT THE SAME TIME! Pretty amazing, right? It is not often that we get to make fun of CNN, contemporary American journalism, and conservatives all in the same post, so this is a rare treat! Ready? In but a few moments, you will be exposed to a torrential downpour of idiocy, and forced to examine the possibility that American journalism has basically turned into community theater.

Cory Booker Is The New York Times’ New Al Gore

We guess Newark Mayor Cory Booker sighed too much in his presidential debate with Texas governor Jorge Boosh, because the New York Times has decided he is a big giant asshole! Meow, says the Times’ Kate Zernike, Cory Booker spends a quarter of his time out of town (getting $100 million grants for his city from famous rich people). Hiss, says Kate Zernike, did you know Newark has poverty and Cory Booker has not even made the people of Newark not poor? Here is a shiv, says Kate Zernike, did you know Cory Booker raised taxes 20 percent even while laying off hundreds of city workers and selling city buildings? Why, it is almost as though he is Simpson-Bowlesing the city of Newark, trying to fix entrenched economic problems with a mixture of revenues and spending cuts. BURN HIM. Is there any reason Kate Zernike might have what amounts to a very unbecoming personal animus toward Newark’s mayor? Read more on Cory Booker Is The New York Times’ New Al Gore…

Fourteen-Year-Old Actor Wants Buxom Pretty Sit-Com Lady To Be President, Is Idiot

We have nothing against Sofia Vergara. She is quite fetching! She is very funny, without being fat, ugly, or Jewish, fuck you Christopher Hitchens! But we feel like maybe she is not the first person you would think of to be president of the United States, despite this Washington Examiner story, reproduced here in total: At 14, Rico Rodriguez isn’t even old enough to vote, but he knows exactly which of his “Modern Family” castmates he’d like to see enter the political fray. “It would be awesome to have Sofia [Vergara] in office,” Rodriguez told Yeas & Nays when he was in town last week for the National Tree Lighting. “And then I could visit her all the time in the White House and I could probably have my own room in the White House,” the young actor, who plays Manny, continued. He also knew what a big deal it would be. “That first latin woman — who’s a girl,” he pointed out. “So, you know, my week off, I’m just going to go hang with Sofia in the White House, no biggie,” he concluded. Rico Rodriguez, you are a fucking idiot. Read more on Fourteen-Year-Old Actor Wants Buxom Pretty Sit-Com Lady To Be President, Is Idiot…

‘The Atlantic’ Finds Hostess’s Real Victims: Private Equity Guys Who Will Probably Lose Their Investment

Now that the Hostess closure has begun to affect all of us, Jordan Weissman of The Atlantic will discuss what’s really important here, namely: whose fault it is. And duh, of course it was not the Bain-style “private equity” managers for loading the shitty snack cake company up with debt and then legitimately raping it with management fees; no, it is only their fault for making “poor decisions,” mostly the decisions to only slash union workers pay “a lot” instead of “maquiladora-style.” Read more on ‘The Atlantic’ Finds Hostess’s Real Victims: Private Equity Guys Who Will Probably Lose Their Investment…

Newsmax Reporter: Petraeus Affair Endangered National Security, Per Egregious, Totally Fine FBI Leak

What have our rightwing torture chamber pals at Newsmax been up to lately? Well, according to “chief Washington correspondent” Ronald Kessler, they’ve just cold been getting leaks from disgruntled Fibbies about retired spook-in-chief David Petraeus’s office boffings since October. Ronald Kessler is very outraged about the national security implications of this! Oh wait, no. Ronald Kessler thinks it is fine that an unclearanced person such as himself is getting fed “sensitive” information (just the tip!) about national security from the FBI. On Oct. 10, I was contacted by a longtime FBI source who told me that a bureau investigation had uncovered Petraeus’ affair with a journalist and that it could potentially jeopardize national security. Hmmm, what else might jeopardize national security? Like, maybe leaking serious shit to people from Newsmax? The veteran agent related to me that FBI agents assigned to the case were outraged by what were they were told by senior officials: The FBI was going to hold in limbo their findings until after the election. Oh, right. That’s what endangers national security. Read more on Newsmax Reporter: Petraeus Affair Endangered National Security, Per Egregious, Totally Fine FBI Leak…
