BenSmithing Paul Ryan: BuzzFeed Story Undermines Its Own Headline (more media tall tales)
breitbart.com ^ | 09-14-2012 | John Nolte

This morning as the Middle East burned while Obama fundraised in Vegas and our genius president told the world he had lost Egypt as an ally (whoops!), BenSmithing BenSmither John Stanton over at BuzzFeed Politics wrote an hysterically desperate hit-job against Paul Ryan and House Republicans.

The BenSmithing troll-tastic goal here is obviously to manufacture the idea that there's some kind animosity brewing between Ryan and his House colleagues. Not because Ben Smith or BuzzFeed or Stanton actually believe there's bad blood. What this is is just another shiny distraction fabricated to keep everyone's eyes off the fact that there were no Marines guarding our consulate in Libya and that middle class incomes under Obama have dropped to 1995 levels.

Here's a taste of the worst journalism you might read at BuzzFeed Politics in, oh, the next hour or so:

Ryan Avoids Congressional Republicans On DC Visit ...

A warning to members of Congress hoping for a choice photo-op with vice presidential nominee Paul Ryan during his trip to the Capitol today: blink and you might miss him.

Ryan, the current chairman of the House Budget Committee and the architect of the Republican budget blueprint, is scheduled to return to his Capitol Hill haunts today for an early evening vote.

And that’s about it.

Yep, that's about it.

Except...

Three hours later... Oops!

Well, maybe that's not about it.

“And if my source is correct, Stanton updated his piece without noting the update (via Twitter, I reached out to Stanton to confirm, but two hours later he still hasn’t responded.)

But that’s the great thing about being a BenSmithing BenSmither who BenSmiths... It’s not about getting it right, it’s about being a third-rate troll who can give the Obama-worshipping media something shiny to play with.

UPDATE: After I tweeted Stanton he added “[Updated]” to his headline. I’m sure that’s a coincidence.”

Bottomline: “It’s about being a third-rate troll who can give the Obama-worshipping media something shiny to play with.”

Rush calls them all “Democrats with a byline”. :)

These blog trollers and Democrat byliners fabricate so well, almost like they’ve been taught the technique, difficult to pick up their lies.

Ahhh, the bear hug guy. I was aware of that but still a bit puzzled why the Secret Service didn’t take him out; unless the hug was well planned
