    The Three Media Stooges

    The Three Media Stooges

    This photo montage from National Review Online perfectly reflects what I have been writing about all weekend regarding the lie that Sarah Palin, the Tea Parties or right-wing “vitriol” caused Jared Loughner to shoot and kill dozens of people in Tucson:

    There really is no difference at this point between Markos Moulitsas, Keith Olbermann, and Paul Krugman.

    Actually, there is a difference.  Moulitsas spreads disinformation knowing it is a lie, Olbermann doesn’t care, and Krugman is too sanctimonious and self-righteous to recognize it.

    There are so many great posts regarding our pathetic and manipulative mainstream media.  Here are a few:

    I saw the three stooges as eponymous monkeys in Nikko, Japan: See, hear, speak no evil.

    Apparently, the more so fisticated version is to offer even a more cowardly simplisme that projects all wrong-doing onto onlookers: I see, hear and speak of your evil.

    Thank you Moulitsas, Olbermann and Krugman for your heaartfelt condemnations in which you come off as soft shearling piranha carnivores hiding in government provided grottoes.

    @Just a guy Funny . . . but remember, it makes some people have hissy fits when you challenge them like that!

    Seems to me the CQ goal here was merely to post the first comment, regardless of how inapt the message may have been.

    Think of is as analogous to the "shoot first, ask questions later" mentality of the "The Three Media Stooges" giving them their exposure on this topic to begin with.

    A self-honored Captain named Quirk,
    Excitedly posted a yerk,
    His non sequiturious,
    Comment, though curious,
    Was FIRST, thereby prompting his smirk!

    Captain Quirk doth seek
    a Klingon with which to peek
    into it's dark soul

    Wolffiles links to a screenshot of Jared Loughren's voter registration, the accused Arizona shooter. Not surprisingly, he appears to be a registered Democrat.

    Chris Cillizza at WaPo says Loughren is a registered independent. I can't reproduce the screenshot Wolf has on his site because I don't have all the personal information required by the Arizona Secretary of State site. So maybe Wolf's screenshot is a hoax.

    I generally consider Cillizza a straight shooter, but given the dishonesty on display by the media this weekend, I don't know who is right here, Wolf or Cillizza.
