    Someone tell The Daily Caller to stop digging

    Someone tell The Daily Caller to stop digging

    “Passive-aggressive whining about people who dare to disagree with you” is Jim Treacher’s latest comment here, directed at me.

    Bizarre.  He’s been commenting furiously in the comment section here because I wrote a post critical of The Daily Caller’s handling of the Mike Tyson video about Sarah Palin.

    My post wasn’t directed at him, or even at the specific author of the Tyson post, but rather at the lack of editorial judgment at The Daily Caller, a professional, investor-funded operation which acted like a bunch of amateurs seeking to spike weekend traffic and in so doing damaged the brand.

    Similar criticism was widespread throughout much of the conservative blogosphere and even from Greta Van Susteren.  That criticism, and the damage it caused to The Daily Caller, will not go away just because a Daily Caller staffer always tries to get the last word in at the comment section of a critical blog.  Look in the mirror guys, not at the comment sections of other blogs.

    I suggested in my original post that The Daily Caller didn’t know when to stop digging.  I think I have been proven right.

    Treacher keeps saying that he’s correcting errors in logic. Where? Whose? How? All I see is juvenile and unbecoming snark … and a reputation gone down the drain.

    When, I wonder, will Jedidiah Bila quit the DC?

    Let this be a lesson to the youngsters: easy on the Red Bull, kids!

      Jim: is this your idea of a cute rhetorical trick?

      Perhaps you might to look up “passive agressive” again.

      When you refuse to answer a simple question, you call your motives into question.

      What are you trying to accomplish here?

    I would say DC got what they wanted. Everybody is talking about the mike tyson farce and thus DC. Who cares what this pervert says? Who cares that DC printed what he said? I never read anything this pervert says just like I never read anything red foxx said. It will be ugly, it will be nasty and it will make my skin crawl, so since I know the end results and anger I will feel, why should I bother reading the trash.

    Just finished reading the comments and it does appear that JT is/was on some personal vendetta to right the wrong he thinks has been done to the DC here. Unfortunately he missed the cut off point where his defense of the article as news slipped from something readers might have been interested in hearing into something that now appears to be just whiney trashing of his arms. Most people who have heard/read this have made up their minds whether it was DC trashing Palin or news.
