Oh, sure. It's all fun and games until somebody has to clean the cage. Do you know the landfill won't take that stuff?

I am really distressed by this news. I thought Jeff Gannon was the best reporter at the WH press briefings.

Exactly. If anyone listened to Rush, they'd know he frequently uses the 'soup line' description to paint a mental image of how the Democrats try to paint our economic condition.

And to be accurate, Gannon never claimed in his question that what he said was a quote. It's incredibly sloppy journalism, but on a very low scale.

Good points. Just what we need on FR -- someone who falls for the MSM spin and is a rumor monger.

he is proud he completely made up stuff atrributed to Harry Reid and then Mr. Gannon quotes the misquote without providing a source during a whitehouse briefing



Is that something like Rather and his minions?......

ReadTheFinePrint didn't want to admit to having only left-wing sites (and a Google search suggests this affair has them all a-twitter) so couched them as "rumors". The other newbie at least directed us to Kos.

David Brock wrote a length article about Jeff Gannon last week. Freepers tore it apart, given Brock's sullied history.

But evidently Gannon misquoted Sen. Reid in the same manner Rush Limbaugh did and aso Brock started investigating and found that it was unlikely Gannon had actual journalistic credentials.

The fact that we have had an evening news anchor for what, 20 years, who doesn't even have a high school diploma hasn't concerned the left. (I'm talking about Peter Jennings).

realize that the MSM will be doing far more fact-checking on new media work than the MSM does on their own work.

The legal system is an adversarial system. Opponents try to punch holes in one anothers arguments. In the process, truth emerges.

I hope the Legacy Media fact-checks the New Media, and I hope the New Media continues to fact-check the Legacy Media. In the process, truth will emerge.

I don't think he was helped much by the exposure that in addition to "Jeffgannon.com," he also owns websites like:

"Hotmilitarystud.com
Militaryescorts.com
Militaryescortsm4m.com"

Sad to say, I'm not joking.

There's some weird stuff in his past that he's hiding.

There were suggestions made that these were things that would give them Jeff's real name, which apparently was a big deal. How many other journalists use pen names anyway? Wolf Blitzer anyone?

Initially, the thinking was if they could find out what his real name was, which naturally would be something like "John Rove" or "Fred Bush" if "Jeff Gannon" wasn't a CIA collective fronting for Chimpy Bushco, they could bust the administration with it.

The focus quickly moved from catching the adminstration for planting a shill, to simply going after Jeff. They haven't pinned anything on the adminstration, they just took out a reporter for a small publication.

There are other non-MSM at those press briefings. I think LaRouche has some reporter in there. In fact some of the press corp are clearly partisan, but there is no objection to as long as they are the right kind of partisan.

I'll wait while you find one single journalist on the planet earth who has not made a mistake. Just one will do.

Have they resigned? No

Have they been threatened? I don't think so or we'd be hearing all about how the right wing was threatening them.

< What goes around comes around, doesn't it? >

Well, you are quite the overachiever, aren't you? Just when it seems like you couldn't possibly make a stupider statement, you find a way to top yourself.

What this means is that only 20% of the country, probably, will now be represented by WH MSM. They'll keep bellowing questions of no interest to the other 80%, and deservedly losing public confidence.

As to Gannon, on the other hand, it hardly looks like a profile in courage.

Hmmm. Your detective skills are slipping, old man.

1) "Jeff Gannon" is the alias of "James (JD) Guckert." This has been established.

2) "Bedrock Corp" is registered to J Guckert, the same person who owns "JeffGannon.com"

3) Guckert also owns the gay military sites I posted above.

Is is that hard to figure out?

The guy was not a credit to the right. He wrote poorly written pieces. We can do much better. I'm glad to see him go, as he would only have been a distraction.

MurryMom seems to be a moonbat and a troll (which explains the title she chose for her thread). One has to wonder how she's lasted on FR for so long.

She’s sort of viewed as an odd but harmless pet, like a brain-damaged, declawed hamster.

Gannon asked the president a question at a WH press briefing and misquoted Sen. Reid. He got the misquote from Rush's radio show, most likely.

David Brock (eyes rolling) wrote a lengthy article last week detailing that Gannon probably didn't have journalistic credentials and trying to discredit Talon News for which Gannon writes.

Now Gannon has resigned.

Ganson was to the WH Press Corpse [sic] what Rush Limbaugh was originally to all of media: the lone alternative approach to the oppressive din of liberalthink.

And, as with Limbaugh, they whined and cried over his "imbalance."
