"Boy, Blowing Up A DNC Media Hit Job On Scott Walker In Realtime Sure Is Fun!"

"The Latest Attempt To Launch A New Walker Smear Crashes & Burns On The Launch Pad. And There Was Much Rejoicing."
As it so happens, this Jezebel writer, Natasha Vargas-Cooper, either didn't do any research at all on this piece or she deliberately left out the whole story.

As it so happens, there is a pretty damn good reason Scott Walker deleted these [sexual assault] reporting requirements.

He did it because - get this! - the University of Wisconsin *asked* him to.

There was a time when I would have assumed this was just sloppy incompetence. That is no longer my assumption. If it were true the story would have already been pulled and an apology posted. More people will see the headline at Memeorandum than will see the "correction" that grudgingly follows. Mission accomplished. Alinski would be proud.

CatherineM said...

Katha Politt breathlessly posted yesterday that Scott Walker has a "love child," only to apologize later that it was too good to be true. She "didn't realize" it was debunked.

Today's journalists. Pathetic.

CatherineM said...

PS it shows how freaked out they are by him that they keep digging in the dirt.

traditionalguy said...

Just wait until MSNBC gets hold of it and links it with serious women wondering out loud why Walker fled from college in his senior year. What was he afraid of getting arrested for????

CatherineM: "PS it shows how freaked out they are by him that they keep digging in the dirt."

They aren't "digging in the dirt."

They are busy synthesizing the dirt.

Today's journalists. Pathetic.

What few people realize is that journalism has ALWAYS been pathetic. There was no golden age when reporters were scrupulously honest and did a good job.

What we *did* once have was an environment where there were lots of outlets for journalism. Cities would have multiple dailies, each with a vested interest in explaining why their rivals were full of it. Codes of ethics don't keep people honest -- fear of getting caught does.

As the media market shrunk and consolidated into a handful of left-wing papers and networks, that fear of being caught out by the competition vanished. There was no competition.

Thanks to the internet, that's starting to change again. There may not be a rival to the local paper, but there are millions of people with the ability to tell others when the paper lies.

It shows, as always, that they doubt their ability to win on the merits and on the issues. It's all about the politics of personal destruction to them. They take after their leader.

I'll wait patiently for the retraction and apology.

To paraphrase Olbermann, "pitiful."

wildswan said...

It might be that people will at last see how the lefties are ready to say anything that's destructive about Republicans - ready to lie about 49 % or more of the country thinks.

Anyhow each time a lie gets exposed some more people see how the liberal media-lie machine works. And someday,... someday ... the Big Lie about conservatives will tip over and just suddenly look silly.

And Natasha's daddy, Marc Cooper, is associate professor of professional practice, at the Annenberg journalism school, USC.

That fact about Natasha's father...well, it figures, doesn't it?

I've already seen it linked on Facebook. *sigh*

Jezebel.com was of course the home to the knee-jerk reaction against the journalists who first began to question the Rolling Stone Virgina Gang Rape story.

There doesn't seem to be any adult supervision at Jezebel.

A few years ago Hugh Hewitt wrote an interesting article on what goes on at an elite J School:

The 16 students are not evenly split--there are 14 women and just two men. Two-thirds of the M.S. class this year are women, a reflection of what Lemann calls the "feminization" of journalism programs across the country. Robert Mac Donald, the assistant dean for admissions and financial aid, ran down the demographics for me: The average age of an M.S. student is just shy of 28, the mean is 26, the youngest is 20, and the oldest is 63. Whites make up 69 percent of the new class; 11 percent are African American, 7 percent Hispanic, 6 percent Asian, 3 percent Middle Eastern, and 4 percent South Asian. The school doesn't yet keep stats on religious background, though Mac Donald believes there has been a significant increase in Muslim students post 9/11. A fifth of the students are from the New York area, and between 37 to 40 percent are from "the corridor"--from Boston to Washington. Another fifth are from the west coast, and 10 percent are foreign. It is a pretty "blue" student body, and willing to pay handsomely for the privilege of their credentials. A year at CSJ--tuition, living expenses, incidentals--comes to $59,404 according to Mac Donald, though 85 percent of the students receive some financial aid, with packages ranging from $1,000 to $50,000. The average scholarship is $5,200, which means that these students are putting a lot of money into the program.

I like how in the original piece the UW system is described as "beloved."

If something is "beloved" I guess it's extra suuuuuper totally mean to trim its budget!

John Cunningham said...

As the imbecilic lies of the Party press organs pile up, will the sheeple ever get the point?

Just wait until MSNBC gets hold of it

The low rated left-wing programming at MSNBC is being gutted. There might not be anyone left to repeat this smear.

Watching people get hot and bothered over picayune controversies that will not be remembered six months from now except by Dana Milbank and the padded-room section of Salon - okay, that's all of Salon - is pretty entertaining.

Michael K said...

It's not a J school but the dynamics are the same. This is education grad school.

“microaggression”—the hottest concept on campuses today, used to call out racism otherwise invisible to the naked eye. UCLA’s response to the sit-in was a travesty of justice. The education school sacrificed the reputation of a beloved and respected professor in order to placate a group of ignorant students making a specious charge of racism.

The pattern would repeat itself twice more at UCLA that fall: students would allege that they were victimized by racism, and the administration, rather than correcting the students’ misapprehension, penitently acceded to it.


The coming teacher class.

"I believe in an omnipotent God, and only for that reason therefore believe He was able to penetrate the ceremony (if He were one shade less omnipotent, He wouldn't have made it). -William Frank Buckley Junior.

This makes me think of Tupac. Not the content, a focus on words and the message conveyed and most precisely how the content is chosen best to be delivered in that way..

The content is about marriage and E. Taylor.

I cannot in good conscious anymore complain without solutions.

Let's think of Tupac.

One better place let's see race get wasted."
Take the evil out the people they be acting right: both Black and White smoking crack tonight.

My fascination revolves around the fact I understand WFB little more than I understand Tupac and I consider them both genius.

I should like to think I understand WFB more, but I don't. I don't know shit about either or really even myself. Yet the conclusive connection of artists who's results gravitate my-brain-wise don't pay my rent neither.
