  1. Glenn Greenwald does a great job of lucidly articulating his complaint with the media.

    My question is, in whose interest would it be for “multiple sources” to intentionally give reporters errant info so that they then must correct it to great discry, hours or a day later?

    I don’t get it.

  2. I don’t know how you can not agree with the Washington Examiner piece.

    If you reversed the sexes and made Megyn Kelly’s argument on behalf of men wearing sexy clothing instead of women, it would seem even more preposterous and childishly unrealistic.

  3. How full of hate is Iceboy the Disgraced Racist stooge when it comes to Fox News?
    There is this:

    “What is the worst recent example of fake news? Let me know at http://Hannity.com #Hannity”

    Now the racist could have picked either of the TWO stories that seem to prove a Watergate type conspiracy with Trump and Russia that turned out to be fake. (ABC-CNN)

    The racist could have used the Trump banking story……..or the Washington Post reporter who claimed the empty arena lie….both of which were FAKE NEWS……..but NOPE the self deluded media “writer” picked Leland Vittert misstating that the Washington post reporter had been fired for THIS political post when he was IMHO thinking of the fact that he had been fired before for making Political posts…….a error so great that it was corrected during the same show.

    Tell me ICEBOY’s little twitter feed isn’t a parody account.

    • Yeah Leland made a mistake in an unscripted spontaneous conversation and corrected it minutes later. As opposed to a heavily hyped, researched ‘blockbuster’ scoop that CNN didn’t correct for hours until half a dozen other outlets shamed them into it. And even then made no apology.

  4. That article about Megyn Kelly’s choice of wardrobe is moronic. A woman in the workplace can be smart and effective and wear stuff that shows off her legs or whatever – if guys can’t handle it that’s on them.

    • Frankly, you can show off your legs simply by wearing a dress or a skirt.

      There’s a distinction here that the author is making.

  5. Calling my shot — ratings sweep in primetime for MSNBC tonight
    The will win all hours head to head w/CNN and Fox

    Liberals are going to be locked in for this AL senate race.

  6. Today’s most popular links:
    5 sexual innuendo
    4 selling CNN
    3 being conned
    2 milks MeToo
    And the most popular link in today’s links…
