Hardcore Journalism

I know that bloggers don't always like the fact that the MSM calls them well.. "just bloggerrs"

Well the Drudge Report sets another fine example of hardcore journalism, using hardcore sources.

Today they Drudge runs this headline:

Iraqi Voter: “Anybody who doesn’t appreciate what America has done and President Bush, let them go to hell”...

Well how bout that? We ARE being seen as liberators! Yippee!

Until, of course, you see that A) the story doesn't really exist and B) Drudge's source is THE POLITICAL TEEN, the finest teen newsource in ALL the land.

My guess is this teen is nowhere near Iraq, doesn't have any real journalism experience, and is probably late for band practice.

Thanks for keeping the BAR high Drudge!

Crackpot: Kudos to you for doing what most of cannot do: You watch HANNITY & colmes so we don't have to, and you peruse Drudge's site. For that sacrifice, this liberal is grateful... now go hurl over there in the corner b/c I know it was difficult holding it in, buddy. Here... here's a breath mint.

That "Iraqi Voter" was from Detroit. Grace over at Scriptoids has the whole story.
