Have you ever wondered where the “investigative” journalists of MSNBC, like David Shuster, do their research for the tales they tell against Republicans, conservatives and the Bush Administration? Corrupt mainstream journalists like Shuster do their research in the very same places as do the investigative journalists of “Slate Magazine,” “Mother Jones Magazine” and “The Los Angeles Times.” The blogosphere! Only problem, instead of reading real blogs like this one, Kerfuffles and Flourishes, the corrupt news reporters read blogs that do not really exist. That makes it very easy for them to get the latest corrupt news they are looking for, instead of having to wade through the truth.
MSNBC retracts false Palin story; others duped:
David Shuster, an anchor for the cable news network, said on air Monday that Martin Eisenstadt, a McCain policy adviser, had come forth and identified himself as the source of a Fox News Channel story saying Palin had mistakenly believed Africa was a country instead of a continent.
Eisenstadt identifies himself on a blog as a senior fellow at the Harding Institute for Freedom and Democracy. Yet neither he nor the institute exist; each is part of a hoax dreamed up by a filmmaker named Eitan Gorlin and his partner, Dan Mirvish, the New York Times reported Wednesday.
Eisenstadt’s “work” had been quoted and debunked before. The Huffington Post said it had cited Eisenstadt in July on a story regarding the Hilton family and McCain.
Among the other victims were political blogs for the Los Angeles Times and The New Republic, each of which referenced false material from Eisenstadt’s blog.
And in July, Jonathan Stein of Mother Jones magazine blogged an item about Eisenstadt speaking on Iraqi television about a casino in Baghdad’s “Green Zone.”
Eitan Gorlin and his partner Dan Mirvish have really stepped into the deep doo-doo. You don’t mess around with the likes of Corrupt MSNBC and expect NOT to be awarded MSNBC’s Badge of Courage – “Today’s Worst People in the World” Award when Keith Olbermann slithers from under his mossy rock to do his Lunatic Fringe Show tonight.
“The Washington Post” must be feeling left out that they were not dupped by the Gorlin/Mirvish Team. Today WaPo has unleashed Howard Kurtz to label Sarah Palin a liar for claiming that the media attacked her family telling viscious lies about her teenage daughter regarding the birth of the Palin’s Down Syndrome baby (The Washington Post). Hello Howard? “The Atlantic Magazine” and NPR are not the media? Howard? Don’t you remember that it was you Howard Kurtz, according to patterico.com, who “demanded” that the McCain Campaign release the medical records of Sarah Palin’s pregnancy to “disprove” the vicious lies made up by the blog Daily Kos? UNBELIEVABLE! Just wondering; did Howard Kurtz ever “demand” to see medical records or even the birth certificate of the person running for President of the United States?
