Dumbest Man on Internet Jeers Washington Post Blogger for Correcting Error

Still waiting for Jim Hoft to correct a single mistake, ever
Wingnuts • Views: 22,903

Washington Post blogger Suzi Parker erroneously reported today that Sarah Palin was taking a job with Al Jazeera, as part of an article on Palin’s increasingly desperate attempts to stay relevant.

Soon after the article appeared, the Post added a correction:

CORRECTION: An earlier version of this post incorrectly reported that Sarah Palin had signed on as a contributor to the Al Jazeera America news network. The blogger cited a report on the Daily Currant Web site as the basis for that information without realizing that the piece was satirical.

Correction or not, the entire right wing blogosphere immediately launched into unison jeering at the Post and Ms. Parker, because that’s how they roll. Don’t tell them, but their projection is amazingly obvious.

But the most blatantly hypocritical of the bunch has to be, yes, Jim Hoft again, with a nasty post calling Suzi Parker a “crank” and telling her to go back to Arkansas:

Oops!… WaPo Crank Falls for Dumb Palin Prank - Gets Burned | the Gateway Pundit

DERP

Liberal hacks will believe anything… As long as it is an attack on Sarah Palin.
Palin-hating WaPo “cultural journalist” Suzi Parker slammed Sarah Palin today for taking a job with Aljazeera.
Too bad it was bogus.

Suzi Parker got punked.

Suzi Parker got her information from The Daily Currant, a satire website.

[…]

Nice work, Suzi.

Maybe it’s time you take your hate-filled and biased “cultural” reporting back to Arkansas.

The hypocrisy is especially fragrant in this case because Dim Jim Hoft is absolutely infamous for never correcting, retracting, or even acknowledging his own absurdly numerous mistakes.

For example, the post he put up last Saturday using a long-debunked fake photo of John Kerry with Jane Fonda. He let the post stand for several days with no correction at all, even though his own commenters were telling him the picture was a fraud, then today he silently went back and replaced the photo, with no explanation except “(Post was updated).”

Just one more sleazy maneuver by the Dumbest Man on the Internet.

Of course, conservatives are never wrong and liberals are never right. All is pure is conservative fantasy world.

If only all journalists and news outlets would issue immediate corrections - yet still, some would object.

I don’t know if Hoft is really as dumb as he comes off, or if he has been for years intentionally trolling the more leaden recesses of the American populace a la WND, but he nevertheless has had a measure of success in gathering followers.

Fact check my ass. FCMA. Folks like Hoft use to use that all the time when the media outlets would slip up on some bit of information in a story, but now Hoft’s doing the same thing he accuses the media outlets of doing.

In fact, he’s doing it more frequently to the point of beclowning himself with every new posting.

He’s the opposite of professionalism or pride in posting.

As someone who prides his name and reputation, if I get something wrong, I’ll go through the effort to make the necessary corrections and in public. Hoft’s reaction is to bury the details, if he ever recognizes the issue at all.

That’s not professionalism. That’s propagandizing.

GOP Senator Peddles Debunked Misinformation On Gun Violence

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) cherry picked data and misled the public about gun research in a Senate Judiciary hearing on Tuesday, painting a picture of America’s gun problem entirely at odds with reality. Cruz made two arguments when questioning US Attorney Tim Heaphy — first, that gun regulations made gun crime higher in American cities; second, that there was no empirical evidence that gun law reform would reduce crime:

CRUZ: San Antonio has 7 murders per 100,000 people. Austin has four murders per 100,00 people. El Paso has two murders per 100,000 people. That means Detroit, the murder rate is 24 times higher than it is in El Paso…None of those cities I discussed, Houston, Austin, San Antonio, El Paso, are isolated islands. Indeed, in the entire state [of Texas] you can purchase firearms and what we see with the murder rates is that the murder rates are consistently lower. My question to you, is not your subjective beliefs, but are you aware of any empirical data — every one of us wants to reduce murder rates — my question to you is there any basis to say that stripping the constitutional rights of law-abiding citizens would result in decreasing murder rates rather than increasing them which, unfortunately, is the pattern I think we’ve seen.

State level data contradicts Cruz’s assertion. The two states with the highest per capita murder rates in 2011, Louisiana and Mississippi, have F ratings from the pro-reform Law Center to Prevent Gun Violence (the third highest, South Carolina, gets a D-). Louisiana and Mississippi don’t, among other things, require background checks on private sales, require firearm dealers to acquire licenses in order to sell guns legally, or limit the number of guns any one person can purchase at once.

Applied genetics is a growing industry and I suspect a social force in the near future.

From China:

Inside China’s Genome Factory

When he was 17 years old, Zhao Bowen dropped out of Beijing’s most prestigious high school. Like many restless young people in China, he headed south to Shenzhen, the country’s factory capital, for a job. As a teenage science prodigy, however, he wasn’t bound for an assembly-line floor; instead, he was on his way to the world’s largest production center for DNA data. Now, a few years later, in a retrofitted shoe factory that is the headquarters of BGI-Shenzhen, the 21-year-old is orchestrating an effort to decipher the genetic makeup of some 2,000 people—more than 12 trillion DNA bases in all.

BGI-Shenzhen, once known as the Beijing Genomics Institute, has burst from relative obscurity to become the world’s most prolific sequencer of human, plant, and animal DNA. In 2010, with the aid of a $1.58 billion line of credit from China Development Bank, BGI purchased 128 state-of-the-art DNA sequencing machines for about $500,000 apiece. It now owns 156 sequencers from several manufacturers and accounts for some 10 to 20 percent of all DNA data produced globally. So far, it claims to have completely sequenced some 50,000 human genomes—far more than any other group.

[…]

An impressive “non-profit” for sure. The story goes on in detail about their growth, and how they are eclipsing American companies. To whit:

[…]

BGI’s bid to buy the company, for the fire-sale price of $118 million, has stirred competitive worries in the U.S. The main supplier of DNA sequencing instruments, Illumina, tried to break up the deal with a counter-bid and appealed to Washington to block the takeover. Letting BGI snap up the company would be equivalent to selling China the “formula for Coke,” said Illumina’s CEO, Jay Flatley. Flatley cautioned that the Chinese, until now dependent on U.S. machinery, could dominate next-generation technology—and that they could even somehow make “nefarious” use of American DNA data flowing through their computer servers by the terabyte. U.S. regulators have dismissed the national security concerns, and approval of the deal is pending.

Here’s a funny thing about the Confederate apologists. They act like Lincoln was so, so terrible for using force to bring the CSA states back into the Union. Well there were Unionist parts of the states that seceded and the CSA used force to try to force them to go with secession. I’d rather have an Abraham Lincoln than a Jefferson Davis any day. The rise of Lincoln hatred on the right should really tell you a lot about where they’re going and that’s the nut house.

Nugent Will Attend SOTU to Serve as a Counter to Obama’s ‘Masterful Scam Artist Fraud Delivery’

Ted Nugent called into Glenn Beck’s radio program this morning to explain why he will be attending tonight’s State of the Union address as a guest of Texas Republican congressman Steve Stockman. As Nugent explained it, Rep. Stockman wanted him to attend to serve as a counter to President Obama’s “masterful scam artist fraud delivery … every time he opens his mouth [who] will stack the audience with his props” and because Nugent “has trounced the anti-gunners every time they dare debate me.”

In fact, Nugent declared that “I have the right to be there” as a representative of “logical, productive, conscientious, law-abiding Americans” who “stand in opposition to President Obama” … and he’ll be placed “right out in front of him,” which Beck thought was just “fantastic”:

Yeah, I’ve gotten tired of that “slavery was on the way out” bit that supposedly was enough to argue against the Civil War. When you consider that every state that seceded mentioned slavery as a reason, if not the reason for seceding, the idea that the South was going to go along with the end of slavery is laughable.

Of all the things that are romanticized, the CSA is probably the dumbest. A nation formed primarily to protect slavery and slave owning interests. A nation that had its rebellion not been crushed would have imploded in itself eventually.

Lincoln’s second inagarual is a thing of beauty.
With malice toward none, with charity for all, with firmness in the right as God gives us to see the right, let us strive on to finish the work we are in, to bind up the nation’s wounds, to care for him who shall have borne the battle and for his widow and his orphan, to do all which may achieve and cherish a just and lasting peace among ourselves and with all nation

A lot of soppy romance and melodrama in it, but a cable channel mass ran the “North and South” mini-series over the weekend. All sorts of silly errors, but it did put across that both sides had radicals yelling about the other side and provoking the situation in legal and even illegal ways. It interestingly enough also displayed the three-tier Southern social system fairly well on a few occasions and how it was part of the built-in control system.

A situation that steadily polarized. And part of it was a group losing political power due to changing demographics and being extremely unwilling to cede their influence and modernize their outlook.

Oh, I also found a good “railroads are good at making freight cheaper” example. :)

Town of 9,000 that is *not* on a railway. Vernal, UT.

From the wikipedia page:

The Bank of Vernal (aka the ‘Parcel Post’ Bank) Building (3 West Main Street) is a registered historical building in the Uintah County Landmark Register.[8] Also known as “the Bank that was sent by Mail”, the Bank of Vernal was constructed in 1916-1917 by William H. Coltharp, a Vernal businessman and entrepreneur. Coltharp took advantage of inexpensive Parcel Post rates to ship some 80,000 masonry bricks in fifty-pound (22.6 kg) packages via the U.S. Post Office the 180 miles (289.7 km) from Salt Lake City to Vernal.[9][10] The Parcel Post brick shipments were transported from Salt Lake to Mack, Colorado by Denver & Rio Grande Railroad, then proceeded to Watson via the narrow gauge Uintah Railway, finally Vernal by wagon freight through steep roads. The full trip was over 420 miles (675.9 km) long.[11] After completing delivery of the bricks, the U.S. Post Office hastily changed its regulations, establishing a limit of 200 pounds (90.7 kg) per day per sender. The United States Postmaster General Albert Sidney Burleson explicitly stated in a letter that “it is not the intent of the United States Postal Service that buildings be shipped through the mail”[12] Today the building is used as a branch office of Zions Bank.

[Posted at 4:31 p.m. ET] Law enforcement officers are responding to reports that ex-LAPD officer Christopher Jordan Dorner has been sighted and may have been involved in a robbery in the Big Bear area of southern California, said law enforcement sources involved in the investigation.

Dorner has been the subject of a seven-day manhunt as a suspect in three killings.

It’s like some doctor from the early part of the 20t century is talking about the prevalence of bacteria and how we have to sanitize everything and the current surgical team is looking around the sterile operating room all scrubbed-up and saying Shut the Fuck-UP and let us do this heart transplant.

Not surprisingly, he also retweets anti-Semitic groups as well as other so-called “race realists”.

By the way, on a related note, if you see an individual posting that cites the American Freedom Party, that happens to be white supremacist Kevin MacDonald’s “American Third Position” group, who recently renamed themselves.

[Link: en.wikipedia.org…]

Isn’t the “freedom party” what the Nazi analogs called themselves in Harry Turtledove’s universe where the south won the civil war?
