Journalist Who Mocked Bush As "Idiot" For Falling Of Segway Falls Off Segway, Breaking Three Ribs

2003: ""You'd have to be an idiot to fall off, wouldn't you Mr President.... If anyone can make a pig's ear of riding a sophisticated, self-balancing machine like this, Dubya can."

2007:

Rob Port says it's delicious schadefreude, but it's more than that. Once again a reporter mistook himself for a Universal Omincompetent All-In-One Expert Without Portfolio, authoritatively declaiming upon the auto-balancing of the Segway without, of course, ever having ever actually ever tried one him himself.

This is a sickness among the media class approaching the level of a viral mental disorder.
