White House Press Room Cage Match! Fox News vs. the Second Stupidest Man on the Internet!

Oh the humanity
Wingnuts • Views: 44,103

I’ve been wondering how long it would take for the genuine journalists in the White House press room to get fed up with having to share that lofty position with the likes of Gateway Pundit Jim Hoft (the fabled Stupidest Man on the Internet) and his equally moronic sidekick Lucian Wintrich. Well, not very long at all.

The surprising thing about the blowup today isn’t that it happened, but that it was launched by a Fox News Radio reporter — and that’s surprising because Fox News has long been one of the biggest boosters of Hoft and his hateful blog, frequently citing him and using his distorted, horribly written posts as springboards for their right wing propaganda.

So what happened today, you ask? Apparently Fox News Radio’s Jon Decker reached the limit of his patience with Wintrich and shared some choice words with him about exactly what he thought of Gateway Pundit and Wintrich.

Wintrich immediately started yelling that Decker had “assaulted him” and threatened to “press charges,” like a good little right wing snowflake whose fee-fees were greatly hurt.

(Notice that like his pal Jim Hoft, Wintrich is also semi-literate and unable to spell simple words.)

Decker, on the other hand, gave a statement to Business Insider and completely denied that any assault took place.

Amazingly, I find myself actually believing a Fox News reporter this time.

Decker said in a statement provided to Business Insider that he had a “conversation with a representative from the online publication Gateway Pundit” but that at no time did he get physical with him.

“The conversation was straightforward and direct,” he said. “I also informed the full White House pool that this representative was present in the Briefing Room. At no time did I accost or assault this individual. More than a dozen witnesses will attest to this fact.”

A Fox News representative also denied the assault allegations to Business Insider and said that Decker, a lawyer, was upset with some of Wintrich’s previous tweets and sought only to notify other members of the press corps that the Gateway Pundit writer was attending the daily briefing.

Adrian Carrasquillo, a White House correspondent for BuzzFeed News, said on Twitter that Decker “loudly told everyone in [the] briefing room” that Gateway Pundit was a blog that hates “blacks, Jews, Hispanics.”

Politico has a great kicker to this story.

According to a White House Correspondent in the room, several reporters shook Decker’s hands as he walked back to the Fox News radio booth.

“Props to Jon Decker for speaking up in the press room. It would be much harder for a minority reporter to speak up like he did,” the correspondent said. “As a member of the WHCA board and as a white man him standing up and saying that meant a lot to reporters in the room.”

Meanwhile, over at the Gateway Pundit crap-blog, you can just imagine what kind of hysterical shrieking meltdown is going on. Right wing idiots like Hoft and Wintrich live for those moments when they can pose as victims, clutch their pearls and wail that the awful liberals are SO MEAN to them.

If I were there, I’d have bought Jon Decker a drink or three. Kudos to him for saying what needs to be said, loudly and clearly. It’s embarrassing for the United States and outrageous for anyone that dishonest racist slime like Hoft and Wintrich are in that room at all.
