Hey 19 21: E&P Buries Correction To Mitchell Fake-News Admission, And Refuses To Address Stealth Editing

Greg Mitchell, God knows, ain't exactly a star of the magnitude of Dan Rather in the MSM firmament. He's a no-name no-account nobody working from E&P's home office in Nowheresville.

This is one of the cruellest insults I've ever laid on someone: I think I just might be more important than Greg Mitchell.

I'm sorry, Greg, but I think that is, alas, the case. You should start a MySpace page or something. Try to get some exposure.

So he's a no-talent no-one. Still, he is editor in chief of an amateurish online 'zine that important media-types read, like Greg Mitchell's mother, Babs Mitchell, and Greg Mitchell's great-aunt, Fantala "Fanny" Mitchell. (I'm reliably informed she's Judge Judy's number one fan and in fact has a laminated card of her own construction to prove it.)

So none of this really matters.

Still, when one of the MSM's most passionate and left-leaning defenders, absolving them of any real blame in the Reutersgate scandal, and denigrating the bloggers who brought that scandal to light, gets caught engaging in even further dishonesty and ass-covering, it's too much fun not to note.

E&P now "corrects" that Mitchell was 21, an adult, when he engaged in news-fakery, a "mistake" that was either intentional (to mitigate the crime) or willfully negligent (as the date of the event in question was easily determined by a quick Google search).

And it fails to explain why, exactly, Mitchell is altering three-year-old columns, which now look mighty embarrassing given his "don't sweat the small stuff" stance on news-fakery, without acknowleging his alterations and ammendations.

Mary Katherine Ham bats the hapless Mitchell around further.

And supposedly she's working on getting an interview with him to explore his strangely elastic concept of the time-space continuum.

Good luck with that.

Seems like Greg Mitchell has forgotten the first rule of holes: Don't be an asshole.

Grammy Ace used to tell me that every night before I went to bed. Then she'd shoot herself up with smack, between her toes, because she said said men stayed away from hookers with visible trackmarks.

She was a wise woman.

Allah The Pill: Allah says E&P is important, and does have a print edition, so their shady relationship with the truth is more important than I'm letting on.
