I have several posts below (here, here, and here) about an apparent L.A. Times journalist named “Masha” (aka “workingjournalist”) who has left comments calling me a fascist and otherwise spewing radical leftist propaganda.
Why did I write those posts? It’s simple.
If you come on my site and leave comments with crazy leftist propaganda, and call me a fascist, and I can figure out you’re from the L.A. Times (but you’re not disclosing that fact), I’m going to tell people.
Because it’s funny.
We already think of you folks as crazy leftist propagandists who think we’re all fascists. It’s entertaining to have confirmation that at least one of you really is.
Otherwise, as long as it’s not Michael Hiltzik, and the commenter isn’t using mutually praising sock-puppet identities, I don’t care who it really is. And neither should you, or the L.A. Times.
