Mosk’s vehicle is a profile of Danielle Allen’s quest to find the origin of the Obama email. Here’s Mosk:
“Allen studies the way voters in a democracy gather their information and act on what they learn. She was familiar, of course, with the false rumors of a secret love child that helped sink McCain’s White House bid in 2000, and the Swift boat attacks that did the same to Democrat John Kerry in 2004.”
Uh, Matthew, the “Swift boat attacks” were neither false nor rumors; in fact, Texas oilman T. Boone Pickens offered $1 million to anyone who could disprove any statement of fact made by the Swift boat veterans. As far as has been reported, he still has the money.
Are these “professional” journalists biased, incompetent, or just plain stupid?
