JWF Mentioned on FNC's Special Report, Media Matters Flips Out

I didn't catch this last night, but thanks to Sissy Willis for alerting me on Twitter. Seems my comment regarding Dingy Harry Reid's absurd statement about Obama being like a Chilean miner struck a chord. Watch the video.

The humor-deprived character assassins at the Soros-funded Media Matters take umbrage with Fox using me as a source of humor.
Apart from the questionable cleverness of JammieWearingFool's response, Baier should have been more selective for a solid journalistic reason: JammieWearingFool is a bad source of information. He has a history of picking up hoaxes and presenting them as genuine. He treated a blog post about Rep. Alan Grayson (D-FL) spending time in a "mental hospital" as potentially real -- but the post was marked "satire." Likewise, he fell for another bit of satire about a global warming activist freezing to death in Antarctica. He also promoted the easily debunked line of attack that it was "[a]nother slap in the face to our veterans" for Obama to honor the troops on Memorial Day somewhere other than Arlington National Cemetery. (The past three Republican presidents have done the same.)

And then there was the time that he compared Supreme Court Justice Elena Kagan's looks to those of a male former CNN reporter.

In a way, Baier's decision to quote JammieWearingFool makes sense, given Fox News' long history of harvesting phony stories and bankrupt lines of attack from right-wing bloggers -- the utterly discredited Jim Hoft quickly jumps to mind.
This from a group that selectively edits quotes from Rush Limbaugh on a regular basis in order to smear him.

I consider it an honor to have this crew of paid liars attack me. It's one thing to put up satirical blog posts. Quite distinguishable from a paid group of smear merchants whose sole purpose is to destroy people's lives and reputations through slanderous accusations using edited quotes out of context. What would really be funny is to have some video of these pinheads wetting themselves when they saw this site mentioned on FNC.

Update: Thanks to Doug Powers for pointing out another case of these hatchetmen caught context-editing video. But don't forget, this little old blog site and Fox News can't be trusted.
