Stacy McCain Nails Karoli of “Crooks and Liars” on Her Bizarre Decision to Throw What Remains of Her Credibility Behind Neal Rauhauser
McCain nails it. Read the whole thing. A teaser:
Wow: Rauhauser’s own claim to have identified Patterico as orchestrating the (non-existent) right-wing conspiracy against Weiner is cited by Karoli as proof that Neal was right! So if Rauhauser were to assert that he once worked as a body double for Brad Pitt, Karoli would link that as “proof” of Neal’s muscular physique. This is an invalid circular argument which accepts mere assertion as “evidence.”
McCain also notes a troubling coincidence that has weighed on my mind in the past:
Three hours after Patterico brought up Rauhauser’s name in connection with “Jennifer George,” Patterico was SWATted.
Probably just a coincidence, I’m sure. Ask the Gaped Crusader.
