Mary Mapes Names Names [tries to trash FreeRepublic]

Mary Mapes Names Names ("Anonymous" Ones)

Posted by Bill

An excerpt from page 201 of her new book:

Within minutes of Buckhead's original posting, Freepers began to repeat and embellish Buckhead's thoughts. Not surprisingly, they all agreed with him, they all agreed with one another, and they all agreed this should be pursued aggressively. Freethinkers they are not. The Freepers and their lockstep like-minded fellow travelers moved as a group, like a school of sharks sweeping toward an unaware and unarmed victim. CBS was like some sunburned, overweight Florida tourist with a cut foot, floundering and flapping in the water alone in the surf. The Freepers swarmed CBS not because it was right or fair but because they could.

On Web sites such as Powerline, INDC Journal, Allahpundit, and Spacetownusa, the bravehearts of the blogging world worked anonymously in what appeared to be huge numbers, in unison, to destroy the Bush-Guard story, to uphold one another's wild and hateful claims, to outshout, outargue, and outblog anyone who dared to disagree. And on their Web sites there is no disagreement. They hate in unison, they speak with one angry voice, they each make themselves bigger by staying as close together as possible.

More comment from Ardolino:

"Mary, no hard feelings? Even in forced retirement, Mapes continues her legacy of accuracy, as neither Powerline, nor Spacetown, nor INDC Journal worked anonymously during the scandal. I invite everyone to revisit my September archives and peruse the "wild and hateful claims" made by INDC. Good times.

"I will grant her one thing - the "school of sharks" analogy is pretty accurate, though her description of a helpless victim (a multi-million dollar respected professional news organization) is a bit ... off. And let's not forget who chummed the water."

Mo, I think it was you who was inquiring yesterday whether Mapes knew about FR. You can read of her awareness here. LOL. It's pretty funny.

That would be, not because we mindlessly agree, as Mapes asserts, but rather because Buckhead was right.

Freethinkers they are not.

What a cry baby! Give me a break. Since Freepers dare challenge the almighty Mapes, well we must be mind-numbed robots....Eh?

Unlike the freethinking, independent apolitical MSM, huh Mary?

Poor mary, she gets caught lying and her defense is more lying. We did prove that the documents were fraudulent. The left will never accept facts that ruin their story. Why let facts get in the way of their lies?

Evidently Mapes attended the Edward Bulwer-Lytton School of Writing.

No. We aren't. Were not nearly as desperate to get to the truth as our friends over at DUh.

We all mindlessly agree about - truth.

I can live with that. It's a compliment.

I heard her comments yesterday. She has an amazing ability to twist things.

Oh, would they not love to take that "could" away from the little people in their underwear and pajamas, uncovering lies and deception on the part of cBS....

I read that excerpt. I have not stopped laughing yet.

I saw that woman for the first time last night on TV.

I looked into her eyes and saw all I need to know.

If she is not, she will do until one gets there. And she is butt ugly to boot.

This "lady" is mentally deficient. Working with "what's the frequency Kenneth" Danny boy has led to a drain of intelligence - if she had any before.
