Even 'liberal lefty' Chris Mathews calls it a "nasty shot."In referring to what it calls, "The most infamous, relentlessly anti-Bush parody site on the 'Net," Hot Air puts up a parody on a parody unintentionally but stupidly performed by an MSNBC announcer, hoping to make a political statement on the death of Jerry Falwell - as only MSNBC can do so well:
You can imagine how it played out. Producer to intern: "We need a fawning description of him from the White House website to show how influential he was with conservatives." Intern to producer: "Great! I'll just google white house falwell..."Then along comes Josh Marshall at TPM, nailing MSNBC, showing MSNBC talking head Contessa Brewer citing anti-Bush spoof site Whitehouse.org as a source for administration praise of Jerry Falwell, who died today at 73: Ahhh, research, research, research.
[For the Kool-Aid drinkers, we probably need to note that Josh's final comment on how easy it is to mistake "whitehouse.org" as the official Whitehouse website, is a highly facetious remark. After all, moonbats have a lot of trouble understanding humor and sarcasm, especially when they're the target.]So here we have a man John McCain and surely many others refer to in terms of him being "a man of distinguished accomplishment who devoted his life to serving his faith and country," who suddenly dies today, and all MSNBC can do is try to make political hay out of it.
I quess it's just a sign of our times and the nature of the liberal media we put up with.
