William Boykin on Jay Rosen’s blog
“Eason Jordan has just been tire-necklaced by a bloodthirsty group of utopian, bible-thumping knuckledraggers that believe themselves to be bloggers but are really just a streetgang. Time Warner/CNN is spineless if not completely corrupted by its shareholders’ thirst for petro-dollars. It is now clear that all pretenses to journalistic ‘objectivity’ benefit the torturing, gulag-building blood-cult known Bush/Cheney/Rumsfeld’s Republican Party.”
TIRE NECKLACED? You mean as used to happen to completely innocent black men all-too-recently in South Africa? (Necklacing depicts the phenomenon of intra-community violence which reached its peak in the early 1990’s in the KwaZulu Homeland in Natal where supporters of the African National Congress (ANC) clashed violently with members of the Inkatha Freedom Party (IFP).)
Eason did nothing to bring any of this on, eh? And the bloggers are “knuckledraggers…[from the] blood-cult known as Bush/Cheney…” etc?
A little over the top, don’t you think? Kos and Atrios, just helped bring down some strange guy named “Gannon,” after looking into him (and OUTTING him – because the left is so tolerant of gays) because he dared to ask – gasp! – sympathetic questions at a WH presser. One can’t help but wonder if Mr. Boykin would refer to Kos and Atrios as “mouth-breathing sycophants of the liberal media cocoon…”
The left-tilted press is howling…but they’ve nothing to howl about beyond their own sloppiness and arrogance. When they stop behaving like idiots and start behaving like professionals, they’ll have nothing to fear from the big, bad bloggers. Hattip to TKS
And then, go back to LaShawn’s place – she’s linking to CNN’s internal memo re Jordan’s resignation!
