On August 19, Jim Hoft, widely considered the dumbest man on the internet, wrote a post claiming that Darren Wilson had suffered an “orbital blowout fracture of the eye socket,” complete with an x-ray that wasn’t Wilson’s at all. His story was widely picked up in the wingnutosphere. Now that actual images have been released and disproved that story, does he retract it? Nope. He went back and edited it:
The medical report was released after the jury decision was announced.Darren Wilson suffered severe contusions after he was beat in the head by Michael Brown.
The police Report is here.
We previously reported that Officer Wilson suffered and [sic] orbital eye-socket fracture. It now appears he suffered severe bruising but no fracture.
He’s still wildly exaggerating, of course. The images from the police report show his skin a little red, not “severe bruising.” Silly rabbit, intellectual honesty is for non-wingnuts.
