Breaking: Video Messaging Company Confirms Audio of Gunshots Captured at Time of Michael Brown Shooting

Thu, Aug 28, 2014 at 12:21:28 pm
Racist hate-blogger Jim Hoft has been screaming (his default mode of communication) that the audio of gunshots aired by CNN and being investigated by the FBI is a HOAX (that's how he writes it, in caps). With absolutely no evidence, of course, because that's how Hoft rolls. But now CNN is ...

Wed, Aug 27, 2014 at 12:04:32 pm
The disdain with which the St. Louis County and Ferguson police departments view the black community of Ferguson was obvious with their massive militarized crackdown on protesters, but new details in an article at Mother Jones by Mark Follman shed light on why the community was so infuriated after the ...

Wed, Aug 27, 2014 at 10:10:49 am
YouTube I remember when I used to enjoy "Win Ben Stein's Money," but wow, are those days ever gone. Ben Stein has shown himself for quite a while to be a nutty reactionary, but this statement on Michael Brown, in an interview on NewsmaxTV, really takes him another step into bad ...

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

Tue, Aug 26, 2014 at 2:06:31 pm
DERPSometimes right wing loon Jim Hoft is so incredibly dense yet so amazingly egomaniacal, he rivals the best comedy, albeit inadvertently.

Sun, Aug 24, 2014 at 4:36:45 pm
I've had several people approach me on Twitter this week (all right wingers) and angrily tell me I should have asked Jim Hoft for comment on why he deliberately altered that now-infamous CT scan image to conceal its source. So just for the record, I'm going to point out that I ...

YouTube CNN host Brian Stelter calls out Fox News for relying on Jim Hoft's deliberately deceptive blog post about Darren Wilson's "orbital blowout fracture to the eye socket."

I posted this in the comments on another thread, but I think it needs repeating.
