After being called on the carpet for her misleading description of a trial lawyer as a staunch Republican despite the fact that he had donated to Democrats over Republicans by a margin of nearly 8 to 1 Jennifer Hunter first doubled down . . . and now doubles down again.
Namely, she says today that it was a truthful statement that trial lawyer Jim Ronca is a staunch Republican who was so fed up by the Bush White House that he was going to support and give money to Democrats. Those who disagreed, based on his overwhelming pattern of contributions to Democrats, do not care about the truth; rather, Hunter says, they are simply demagogic Republicans.
I think thats quadrupling down.
I believe I finally understand her point. In Ms. Hunters dictionary, staunch is defined as occasional.
Under this definition, Ms. Hunter is a staunch truth-teller.
Its so entertaining to find yet another Big Media journalist who never digs so deep as when shes digging herself a hole.
Thanks to several readers.

This truthful statement caused a huge reaction from demagogic Republicans who seemingly couldn't bear one of their own turning to the Dems. He and I have been receiving rude and hysterical e-mails for over one week.
Wow! It appears Ms. Cruikshank/Hunter may have gone over the top on this one. This is her second explanation defending her original column. Damn! This truthful statement ???? demagogic Republicans????I mean, your average, run of the mill journalist who makes a mistake would probably write something like, "You know, I may have been wrong about that "staunch Republican" thing." But...if you're married to the boss...well...take a look at the last line of the column As far as I'm concerned, this is the end of the conversation. Her majesty has spoken.

Changing the subject when that is convenient is what journalists do best.
