Breitbart Clown John Nolte Runs With (Another) Bogus Story

Right wing journalism at its finest
Wingnuts • Views: 11,299

They’re such idiots. Really. I know that’s not a very polished way to start a post, but seriously, folks.

A few days ago Breitbart “News” ace journalist John Nolte went big at “BIG JOURNALISM” with a BREAKING NEWS BOMBSHELL that the White House press corps is feeding their questions to press secretary Jay Carney in advance of news conferences. He posted a series of tweets from reporters categorically denying this ever happens, and then titled his dumb piece: WHITE HOUSE PRESS CORPS DENY CARNEY GIVEN QUESTIONS IN ADVANCE!!!

This story is such a BOMBSHELL, proving the evil of the Obama administration beyond any doubt, that they actually had to post two stories about it: REPORTER SUGGESTS PRESS SEC GETS QUESTIONS FROM PRESS IN ADVANCE - CARNEY, WH REPORTERS DENY!!!

And of course, there’s just one little problem with it: it’s completely untrue.

Apart from that, BOMBSHELL!

Here’s a statement from the reporter whose off-the-cuff remark started this latest idiotic fake outrage, posted 9 days ago: Catherine Anaya’s Statement on White House Visit.

“Last night during my live reports from the White House I attempted to describe the highlights of the day. I was speaking off the cuff and unscripted and in the process I made two major mistakes: I reported an off the record conversation and what I reported was not accurate. I took a conversation about the preparation for a press briefing and muddied it with my own experience of wanting to provide a question for the press briefing. I incorrectly applied the process to everyone. That was wrong and it was bad reporting. But it was not intentional and I would never purposely report inaccurate information. The White House never asked for my questions in advance and never instructed me what to ask. I chose to provide one of my questions in advance of the press briefing because I wanted to make sure it would have broad appeal. I did not attribute or report factually last night and for that I deeply apologize. I pride myself on truth and objectivity. I sincerely regret any harm I’ve caused and I hope that you will continue to place your trust in the hardworking journalists who make up CBS 5 News.”

More than a week later, no sign of an update from any of the Breitbart dunderheads yet, because they’re right wing journalists, damn it, and that’s just not how they roll.

We could jam in Joe's garage,
we didn't have no dope or LSD,
but a coupl'o'quarts o'beer,
would fix it so the intonation,
would not offend your ear.
