  • Notorious DUer Will Pitt Turns Angrily Against Obamacare

    Harry Reid is going to have a hard time portraying Will as a Koch brothers shill... William Rivers Pitt, a leftwing editor at TruthOut,  whose foibles have been chronicled in NewsBusters and is probably best known for his journalism "scoop" of predicting the indictment of Karl Rove on May 12, 2006, is back in the spotlight again. While waiting 24 business hours to elapse for the Rove indictment to finally take place, Pitt shocked many at the Democratic Underground by posting an extremely angry attack, What I've learned about the Affordable Care Act, upon Obamacare due to a bad personal...

    24 business hours ago, WILLIAM RIVERS PITT, committed the unpardonable thought crime in the eyes of the DUmmies and the TruthOut Truthies, of defending the law enforcement authorities in their hunt for the ISLAMIC TERRORIST Boston Bombers. According to the Leftwing ideology out there, this closing down Boston streets in this dragnet was a much worse crime than the bombing itself. Therefore, Pitt was raked over the coals for his heretical deviation from this ideology. However, rather than defend himself, Pitt came back with an incredible pander column praising Muslims for all to hear as you can see in...

    If you want WILLIAM RIVERS PITT to recant a prediction, you only have to wait for much less than 24 business hours to expire. In this case, I am surprised that it took a whole month for the Pied Piper to recant his PREDICTION that the Democrats would retain control of both the House and Senate. Back then he exhibited snappy confidence in his prediction...and now it is gloom and doom as you can see in his TruthOut STORY, "The Ultimate Political No-Brainer." Yes, it turns out that Pitt was too embarrassed to post his prediction retraction in DUmmieland...

    Is William Rivers Pitt out at TruthOut? His last article, Seeing The Elephant was from over two weeks ago. He is still listed in the TruthOut masthead but they don't update those things right away. I do notice that Jason Leopold has had quite a few TruthOut articles lately. Bad blood between the Pittster and Leopold? If Pitt is OUT at TruthOut, where does he go from there? The last few months which included his banishment from DUmmieland for angry drunken rants in which he threatened violence upon a homeless woman have been a long descent into well-deserved obscurity for...

Well, something almost as absurd happened when WILLIAM RIVERS PITT wrote an an essay about himself and just so happened to leave out his leading role in perpetrating Hoaxmas which was the "scoop" about how Karl Rove was indicted on May 12, 2006. You can see Pitt's self glorifying essay at TRUTHOUT and in DUmmieland where one of his minions reposted it. So let us watch...

Butler is a veteran military pilot and was a POW in Vietnam for 2,855 days. Since his repatriation in 1973, he has earned a PhD in Sociology and according to his author bio, "he mentors business and organization leaders and is a community activist." His article is well-written and thorough, using the Third Geneva Convention and its rules regarding the interrogation of POWs as the basis for his assertions. In...

According to an e-mail from former fashion photographer and now TruthOut publisher, Marc Ash, as you can see in this DUmmie THREAD, Jason Leopold has left his publication.

Twenty-nine people dead in the last three days in a war that the senator has supported since she first voted "yea" to give Bloody George carte blanche to invade Iraq and with her continuing support via her "yea" votes on giving the war addict in the White House the key to the treasury.

    President Bush's ex-spokesman invoked the Fifth Amendment when asked in front of a grand jury about the illegal outing of spy Valerie Plame, prosecutors revealed this week. Former White House spokesman Ari Fleischer sought and received immunity from prosecution for unmasking the secret agent. Armed with this immunity, Fleischer is now expected to testify Monday in the perjury trial of Lewis (Scooter) Libby. Fleischer is expected to tell the court that Libby, formerly Vice President Cheney's top adviser, told him on July 7, 2003, that "he had some information that was hush-hush," said special counsel Patrick Fitzgerald. What was hush-hush...

Oh, and the only reason why we don't know about it is that his indictment has been sealed all this time. You can read the TruthOut Great Pumpkin announcement in this DUmmie THREAD titled, "Jason Leopold and Marc Ash|Indictment Still Sealed, Fitzgerald Still Busy."

Instead, what we got yesterday at TruthOut was yet another SERIES of incredibly LAME excuses and weasel words that even most DUmmies aren't buying. Of course, I still BEEEEEEEELEEEEEVE that Karl Rove was indicted on May 12. Why? Because WILLIAM RIVERS PITT stated that he verified all the sources (including Joe Wilson) in triplicate. And if WILLIAM RIVERS PITT backs up this story then it MUST be...

    You've got to read it to believe it: After spending the past month retracing our steps and confirming facts, we've come full circle. Our sources continue to maintain that a grand jury has in fact returned an indictment. Our sources said that parts of the indictment were read to Karl Rove and his attorney on Friday, May 12, 2006. Last week, we pointed to a sealed federal indictment, case number "06 cr 128," which is still sealed and we are still pointing to it. During lengthy conversations with our sources over the past month, they reiterated that the substance of...

    Last Friday, Truthout editor Marc Ash told his readers to "Expect a more comprehensive accounting of this matter on Monday, June 19." It's 5:45 p.m. on the East coast, and so far Ash hasn't posted anything about Jason Leopold's false report that Karl Rove had been indicted. Perhaps that's because yesterday, the Washington Post published a story that adds to the number of things Ash needs to explain. It's by Joe Lauria — the journalist Leopold pretended to be as he tried to confirm his phony story: Three days later, Leopold's Rove story appeared. I wrote him a congratulatory e-mail,...

    The May 13 story on the Web site Truthout.org was explosive: Presidential adviser Karl Rove had been indicted by Special Counsel Patrick J.

The report set off hysteria on the Internet, and the mainstream media scrambled to nail it down. Only . . . it wasn't true. As we learned last week, Rove isn't being indicted, and the supposed Truthout scoop by reporter Jason Leopold was wildly off the mark. It was but the latest installment in the tale of a troubled...

    The Leftists LOVE using military terminology when it serves their purposes. And in this case, the term "Standing Down" is being used in order to have to avoid the nasty word, "Retract." Yes, "retract" is so ugly. It means you have to TAKE BACK a phony story and admit that Hoaxmas has no basis in fact. Therefore, TruthOut weaseled out by saying they are "Standing Down" on Hoaxmas so they don't have to admit FINAL error. Even the DUmmies aren't buying the Truthout is "Standing Down on the Rove Matter" routine. So let us now watch the DUmmies sit...

    Pied Piper Pitt has returned to DUmmieland in an act of overlong "penitence" that is deeply in need of a Cliff Notes version. In case you're curious about the reference to Canossa in the title, let me explain. In the year 1077, Pope Gregory VII excommuninicated the Holy Roman Emperor Henry IV for appointing his own Bishop in Germany. As a result, Henry IV's noblemen refused to obey him unless the excommunication were lifted. Therefore Henry IV appeared outside the gates of the castle of Canossa where the Pope was staying in the most famous act of penitence in...

    After doing some research on Jason Leopold’s previous work, I came away with a (well-founded) suspicion that the Wilsons and Veteran Intelligence Professionals for Sanity (VIPS) were sourcing a good deal of his work and using him as a mouthpiece. I discovered that this flock of people, the Wilsonistas, suddenly started writing less about the Plame investigation after Libby’s indictment. However, Jason Leopold started writing almost exclusively about the Plame investigation at about the same time, in October. Instead of VIPS writing articles in Truthout and elsewhere about the imminent indictment of Rove, Cheney, Hadley and that Special Prosecutor Fitzgerald...

    A week after proclaiming that Karl Rove has already been indicted on charges of perjury and lying to federal investigators, Truthout has issued a rather inscrutable partial apology. "The time has now come. . . to issue a partial apology to our readership for this story," Truthout Executive Director Marc Ash said in a post on the site Friday. "While we paid very careful attention to the sourcing on this story, we erred in getting too far out in front of the news cycle. In moving as quickly as we did, we caused more confusion than clarity. And that was...

    At 4:23 PM today, TruthOut issued a non-apology apology over Hoaxmas. It sort of looks like an apology but it really ISN'T an apology. What it really is is a heaping load of of unadulterated BULL. As we shall see, not even the DUmmies are buying it. So let us now jump right in with the lame NON-APOLOGY APOLOGY typed out in a fit of desperation by TruthOut's Marc Ash in Bolshevik Red while the commentary of your humble correspondent, hoping that Pied Piper Pitt has a designated driver wherever he is tonight, is in the [brackets]: The Rove...

    HEEEEEEEE's BAAAAAACK!!! The infamous 24 Business Hours of Fitzmas are over and Pied Piper Pitt has reappeared for Hoaxmas. When last heard from, Pitt posted an early morning drunken ATTACK last Monday upon Head DUmmie Skinner and has been incommunicado since then. Pitt is now back in DUmmieland without the least bit of humility. In fact he is STILL standing by his Hoaxmas story as you can see in this THREAD titled, "Marc Ash: 'Update on the Rove Indictment Story'" which was posted at 3:55 P.M.. This was followed up a little over an hour later at 5:01 P.M.,...

    MERRY HOAXMAS!!! So is it just me mocking the long awaited DUmmie Fitzmas that was supposed to happen today as predicted by Leopold & Lib (Pied Piper Pitt)? Incredibly enough, even some DUmmies are are mocking their mis-prediction in this THREAD of the same title, "Merry Hoaxmas!!" Normally such a thread would be immediately deleted from DUmmieland and the author tombstoned. In this case, however, not only has the thread been allowed to remain but it has even made it into the DUmmieland "Greatest" section. Why the amazing leeway? Probably because Head DUmmie Skinner is pissed off at Pied...

    Have any of you ever been to the EMERALD COAST BUFFET in South Florida? If so then you know that the food display, especially the seafood, is so overwhelmingly rich and lavish that one hardly knows where to begin. Well, I feel the same way about this edition of the DUmmie FUnnies. Pied Piper Pitt has provided us with a FEAST upon which to dine and savor the flavor of his his downfall. It is just TOO DELECTABLE. One hardly knows where to begin the feast so let us begin at the beginning back on early Friday evening when...

    Byron York, who reports for Captitol Hill and National Review has spent the day trying to run down the Karl Rove indictment story. According to Jason Leopold's original story at truthout.org-a lefty, indymedia-style web site: Special Prosecutor Patrick Fitzgerald spent more than half a day Friday at the offices of Patton Boggs, the law firm representing Karl Rove. During the course of that meeting, Fitzgerald served attorneys for former Deputy White House Chief of Staff Karl Rove with an indictment charging the embattled White House official with perjury and lying to investigators related to his role in the CIA leak...

    A strange thing has happened over the course of the past year. Whenever I search the name of either Karl Rove or Patrick Fitzgerald in Google News, another name keeps popping up, JASON LEOPOLD, who appears as the reporter of some amazing (but wildly inaccurate) insider information on the CIA "Leak" case. Often Jason Leopold appears as the SOLE source of information which NO OTHER reporter has been able to unearth. So who is this intrepid reporter that is constantly on top of the CIA "Leak" case ("Leak" in quotations since it is NOT a crime to reveal the...

    Twenty-one Spring days proved that the armed forces of the United States led by the brilliant duo of President George W. Bush, and Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfield , is unmatched in today's world for the ability to gather resources, gather combat men and to attack and deliver victory in short order. Another factor is their ability to coalesce the support of the American people for the Iraq enterprise. However, there are some in the American population who objected and continue to object to the war. Recent polls indicate that about 22-25% of the American public objected and continue to...

    I know you all agree with me that what Cindy Sheehan is doing in Crawford, Texas is heroic and important. I met Cindy a couple of months ago when she testified at the hearing I called on the Downing Street Minutes. Later that day, she helped me deliver your signatures to the White House demanding answers from the President about his pre-war deceptions. I want to share with you what struck me about that day, and is even more relevant now. I also want to ask you for your help. It is not that hard for an elected official to...

    <p>UNITED NATIONS (AP) — Former U.N. weapons inspector Scott Ritter released a new book, accusing President Bush of illegally attacking Iraq and calling for "regime change" in the United States at the next election.</p> <p>Ritter criticized key figures caught up in the U.S.-led war at Monday's U.N. news conference. He said Bush lied to the American people and Congress about Iraq's weapons of mass destruction; U.N. Secretary-General Kofi Annan lacked courage; former chief weapons inspector Hans Blix was "a moral and intellectual coward."</p>

    More evidence that Spamcop-listed Truthout is indeed spamming Annalee is a careful reporter and a reliable source. Others also have told me Truthout has spammed them, which means the evidence so far strongly indicates that the folks at Truthout are unrepentant, litigious spammers. Small wonder, then, that Spamcop is listing the site, and shame on Truthout for threatening litigation against Spamcop if all it is doing is, ah, putting the truth out. (Naturally I will give the fokls at Truthout the opportunity to reply.) Note that no bill in the U.S. Congress that I'm aware of (and I believe...

  • Japan Today Pulls Another

    Too funny.A few days ago, Japan Today picked up a story that had been published on Capitol Hill Blue. It turned out that the story was false, and that Japan Today did not even know about Capitol Hill Blue. (Full story here).They had gotten the story from a place called TruthOut.org, which is run by managing editor William (Red) Rivers Pitt, co-author of an anti-American screed along with Scott "Have It Your Way" Ritter. Pitt claimed Japan Today took it without permission. Japan Today provided an email that said different.Japan Today's editor also said they would think twice before ever...

A news outfit depends upon its credibility, just as surely as our society depends upon news reporting in order for people to make judgments over their own governance. Yet it appears that some lessons are not easily learned, as was recently demonstrated by some events which are to this moment still unfolding.</p>

    I am having a back and forth with Japan Today regarding their publishing of an article which appeared in Capitol Hill Blue that has subsequently been exposed to be false.Japan Today did not get the article from Capitol Hill Blue though. They got it from Truthout.org, a leftist propaganda outfit.I wanted to see if Truthout.org even had the story up on their site. I went to their main page, Truthout.org and checked. Nothing. I noticed a search box up at the top. So I took a phrase from the original article, sought significant quantities and hit search.Bingo.Here is what the...
