dana rohrabacher (right) R, The TalibanDaily Beast, we hope you are good and ashamed of yourself! You have been called out for your bad behavior by no less an authority on “crimes” than the “Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan,” known to you and me as “The Taliban.”

What’s up Mr. Taliban?

Attributing false statements to the Islamic Emirate and associating unknown figures with us violates the basic principles of journalism.

Have we read the Daily Beast’s initial report, the one that caused such butthurt among the fine upstanding citizens what like to throw acid in little girls’ faces? We have not, because we are an American, and as such it is our G_d-given right to not worry our pretty little head about things like “whatever that Daily Beast story was about.”

But we are going to make like Congressman Dana Rohrabacher and side with the Taliban, obviously, as they can be counted upon to care — really, really, really care — about “principles.” Especially principles about “journalism.”
