Hot Air guy is *gasp* clueless!
The headline, “Warbloggers refuse to admit their errors in making fraud allegations against AP,” links to Boehlert’s latest piece. It’s followed by an item about Brit Hume supposedly announcing that the AP’s been vindicated on the whole “Iraq atrocity story.” Alas, that’s not what Hume said, but that’s beside the point. The point is, by starting with that headline and the Hume item, MM wants you to scan the remaining items and think that they’re all examples of warbloggers responding to the news about Hussein’s existence by taking shots at Boehlert to change the subject. E.g., “Hot Air on ‘Boehlert’s disingenuousness.’” See the irony? I reacted to evidence of the Iraqi MOI’s disingenuousness by accusing Boehlert of the same because I can’t admit when I’m wrong. Wingnut.Um, wingnut or not, you're quite stupid, fella.
This is a list of historical stories about the subject. That's it. Any sense of outrage you might have about the way they're supposedly misleading people stems, I'd guess, from the shame you and your fellow right wing bloggers are (or, at least, should be) feeling right now over this issue.
One time I'd like to see you guys deal with a real subject instead of how mean the media and left wing bloggers are. Think about it: This whole issue arose when right wing bloggers were trying to avoid the fact that your war is a complete and utter failure. This story arose as NBC decided to belatedly call Iraq a Civil War, but, rather than deal with the quotidian, mindnumbing tragedy in a war for which you so vehemently cheered, you wanted to talk about an incident you thought maybe, just maybe, possibly, pleaseohpleaseohplease might not have happened.
Quit your whining and take your lumps. It's not like you're getting shot at, fuckers.
You predicted that "the left will enjoy this" and you were right. Sorry, but it's the way things work. As one of your own once said, "The check on blogs is other blogs."
If it hurts too much, let us know and we'll gladly call you a waaaaahmbulance.
