Jim Hoft, Dumbest Man on Internet and Master of Projection: Did CNN Get Duped?

“Did they do a background check on the attorney?”

DERP

Sometimes right wing loon Jim Hoft is so incredibly dense yet so amazingly egomaniacal, he rivals the best comedy, albeit inadvertently. In today’s example of this un-self-conscious idiocy from the ineffable Gateway Pundit, dim-witted Jim asks the question: Did CNN Get Duped by Unverified Audio Recording of Mike Brown Shooting in #Ferguson? | the Gateway Pundit.

CNN invited North County attorney Lopa Blumenthal to discuss the video. Blumenthal, a leftie, is representing the man who made the tape during an online chat session.

Oooh, a leftie! In Jim’s vague universe, that means nefariousness is afoot! How does he discern that Ms Blumenthal is “a leftie?” By linking to this page at Facebook:

That settles it, all right — she’s a Commie! Probably a Muslim too. And undoubtedly an atheist.

Jim continues mangling the English language:

CNN ran the video and decided to verify its authenticity later - something they lectured The Gateway Pundit about on Sunday.

Clearly, Jim’s prodigious ego (which dwarfs his intellect) has suffered a blow. A lecture! How DARE they? Well, he’s not going to take this lying down; he asks a series of questions, most of which are not in the form of questions:

The video brings up more questions than it answers:

** Dorian Johnson said he was conversing with Brown during the confrontation.
** Dorian Johnson also said Brown ran about three car lengths away when he turned around.
** The St. Louis County police said at least one shot was fired off in the car.
** Why was the audio made public now?
** Where’s the rest of the audio before the series of gun shots?
** Why would CNN run and [sic] unverified audio? (We all know the answer to that.)
** Did they do a background check on the attorney, at least?

AT LEAST! All attorneys who appear on CNN should be asked if they are now or have ever been Muslim commie atheist progressive far lefties!

These are penetrating, incisive questions… if you’re an idiot. Which Hoft, of course, is.

He continues ambling down Illiterate Street:

CNN better hope this does not come back to bite them.

Like Hoft’s ridiculous, bogus report about a “fractured eye socket” came back to bite him?

Yes, that would be terrible indeed.

UPDATE at 8/26/14 4:51:34 pm by Charles Johnson

By the way, one of dim Jim’s questions:

Where’s the rest of the audio before the series of gun shots?

…has now been answered by Lopa Blumenthal, the attorney for the man who recorded it. There is no “rest of the audio.” That twelve-second clip is the entire recording.
