Dumbest Man on Internet Jeers Washington Post Blogger for Correcting Error

Still waiting for Jim Hoft to correct a single mistake, ever
Wingnuts • Views: 24,164

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.
