Dan Riehl, Conservative Clown, Gets Caught With His Pants Down
More noteworthy as of late is his peculiar journalistic judgment.
Over the weekend Riehl used a four-year-old girl to take revenge on The Daily Caller‘s TV writer Jeff Poor, who wrote a simple aggregated story on Mike Tyson‘s vile sexual thoughts on former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin. The story stemmed from Tyson’s remarks to a Las Vegas radio station. Riehl was incensed. He’s a big Palin fan and “big” would be putting it mildly. He wept while watching a film that he said stole her innocence: “When I see innocence attacked so viciously I become very angry. My tears flowed from that, not so much from sympathy for her as an individual.”
So what does Riehl do? As an act of chivalry, he looked up pictures of Poor’s four-year-old niece on Facebook and at 3 a.m. (not at all a shady hour to post) published a story on his blog suggesting that Poor is a pedophile. He linked to photographs of the little girl. He based his accusations of Poor on a remark made three years ago regarding football and homosexuals.
Poor had posted a photograph on his Facebook page on the campus of Vanderbilt University in front of the set of ESPN College Gameday in October 2008, before the Auburn-Vanderbilt game. Just so happened there was a guy in the corner of the image, and the caption was – “In front of the set of ESPN College Gameday at Vanderbilt University, the training ground for closet homosexuality.” Go figure how that equals pedophilia.
By noon Saturday, The Daily Caller Editor-in-Chief Tucker Carlson had contacted Riehl to insist he remove the post. He obliged.
Please punch out to read the rest of the story and see the full depth of Dan’s misogynistic (Except for PALIN!) hypocrisy…
