Journalists Apparently Haven't Read Their Job Descriptions

[NOTE: In a link to an Aaron Walker story, I mis-linked the item on Twitter and it resolves here. The link you want is here: http://goo.gl/DlFrw. Sorry for the inconvenience.]

In two separate instances over the last day, it seems that Real Journalists don't understand the difference between reporting the news and advocacy. But you didn't need me to tell you that. In no particular order (OK, I lied, the simple one is first) I give you:



Politico reporter Joe Williams can't seem to bring himself to like Mitt Romney. (I've culled this from the superior work of Breitbart.com- click here for full story). And that's OK, that's America. What's not OK is when he accuses Romney of, among other things, "only being comfortable around white people." Absent any facts or statements from any sources, this is a hell of an accusation to make, but completely keeping in line with the racially charged stratagem arranged by the White House re-election team.

OK, if that's not enough -perhaps it's a bit in the weeds for some of you that accept this sort of activity from Real Journalists, how about Ann Romney dick jokes? Classy!

MSNBC Host and Democratic Strategist Krystal Ball (Seriously? ...SERIOUSLY?!?) has found time in her busy schedule to be coordinating with The Web Agent's favorite comedy troupe Neal Rauhauser and Brett Kimberlin in coordinating attacks on Rush Limbaugh's syndicated radio program. In a series of emails obtained by Brooks Bayne at The Trenches, Stacy McCain on TheOtherMcCain.com (It's a daily read for you, isn't it? ISN'T IT?!?) puts together a series of pieces that show the #StopRush effort was going back and forth with Ball regarding internal questions of a suspected right-wing infiltrator.

 Using a Google group "Social Action Steering," (since deleted), Ball was using her Real Journalism skills to ferret out those who wanted to expose a mainstream-media sponsored campaign against a public figure.

Expect updates as they occur.
