Jamilgate: E&P rips AP’s “so-called journalism,” lauds Malkin’s mosques expose

posted at 6:45 pm on January 23, 2007 by Allahpundit

I’m kidding, of course. Twenty-four hours after my post and damn near two and a half days after the boss’s NYP column went live, not a word about HA’s Hurriya report has yet to grace their foul, foul site. No surprise there, either. When some dastardly villain inexplicably hacked into E&P’s server this summer and rewrote one of Greg Mitchell’s old columnscoincidentally at the very moment he was taking heat for that column from the blogosphere — E&P responded first by ignoring the matter and then by ignoring it some more. That’s how “the bible of the news industry” responds when confronted with embarrassing or inconvenient revelations, you see: they simply clam up and pretend they didn’t happen. Just like they’re doing now.

In the immortal words of Gunnery Sergeant Glenn “Rock” Ellensburg, “This is who they are and this is what they do.”

A video tribute, then, to our favorite disingenuous hack of an editor. His omerta might not be as creepy as, say, a man under 30 with a mustache, but it’s plenty creepy nonetheless.

New mantra of the MSM “ignore critisisms from the masses they are ignorant peasants.”

Look, you can tell from all the articles on their index page that they’re still just really broken up about Art Buchwald, okay? So why don’t you just respect their grief a little bit? Would that be too much to ask?

When did Ben Affleck put up a myspace page?

Guess it’s time to unleash that quote.

And what’s creepy about pleated pants? Especially since they can disguise that other problem.

Well, not really.

They are chewing on their knuckles knowing that the news cycle is only so long. It will all just go-away….there…all better now.

gonna have to call you an ass again! I really thought that maybe this time they would do the right thing!

i don’t know what’s so creepy about mustaches specificly on a young man. i say if you’ve got a mustache face, use it.

jummy on January 23, 2007 at 7:52 PM

I’m kidding, of course.

That wasn’t very nice.

For AP….Bastardo!
For the vid….all creeps use Macs, no surprise there!

There’s a special ‘creepy’ section in Hell for these guys.

Thanks Allahpundit and to Owen B….

Made my night as the lighter side after all the POTUS SOTU comments.

Truly, why I am this site….

God Bless…

Treacher, that’s pretty much suddenly NSFW for California. I had a brief moment of “wait, is he singing about…”

Oh yeah. That’s what he’s singing about.

Which makes the pink linen shirt kind of an odd choice.

The arrogance comes from being a liberal.

That what they are: arrogant elitists.

When the bureau of circulation reports the 2006 statistics (and when the Nielson/Arbitron ratings) come out, 2006 will rank as a year of major loses of viewership/readership, if not the worst one so far.

The liberal media is doomed.

I am watching Rupert Murdoc make a take-over offer of the Chicago Tribune’s holdings of 3 major dailies, 23 television stations and the Chicago Cubs.
