Right Wing Blogger Chuck C. Johnson Claims the St. Louis Post-Dispatch Is “Working With” Him

Pure character assassination
Wingnuts • Views: 31,427

Tweeted this morning by the far right blogger who’s so evil-minded even a lot of conservatives despise him:

The equally disgusting Jim Hoft echoes Chuck C. Johnson’s claim in a new post, with no source whatsoever (which means his source is probably Chuck C. Johnson), titled: Breaking: St. Louis Post-Dispatch Also Files Lawsuit for Michael Brown’s Arrest Records.

The Gateway Pundit can confirm today that The St. Louis Post-Dispatch also filed suit for Michael Brown’s arrest records.

If this is true, the Post-Dispatch is collaborating with the worst people in the right wing in what can only be described as a pure character assassination smear. Even if Michael Brown did have a juvenile arrest record, it’s absolutely irrelevant to his shooting death; the only possible reason to try to get his juvenile records is to further poison the well.

I found no mention of this purported lawsuit at their website, but I’ve emailed the Post-Dispatch asking if this claim is true and I’ll update this article if/when I receive a reply. I also contacted their account on Twitter:

UPDATE at 8/29/14 1:06:27 pm by Charles Johnson

So it’s true after all.

Post-Dispatch Seeks Juvenile Court Records.

In response to a number of inquiries today, I wanted to confirm that the Post-Dispatch filed a petition last week with the St. Louis County Family Court seeking the release of any juvenile court records it may have relating to Michael Brown.

The court filing is just one avenue of many in our continuing commitment to cover a significant news story for our community.

We have taken this action as a professional news organization, independently and not in conjunction with any other organization, as we seek to report facts and not rely on innuendo or speculation.

Note that Chuck C. Johnson was lying that the Post-Dispatch was “working with” him.

It’s still very, very disappointing that they’re doing this. It’s a completely irrelevant issue. I can only think it’s driven by a desire to attract a right wing audience.
