Eric Boehlert is really just too dumb to engage, but it’s worth noting that he continues to pretend he never said the following:
And how about the Daily Caller itself, which allowed its blogger to publish the allegation on its site that he’d been hit by the Secret Service, which was not true. The Daily Caller then posted a long, detailed account of the accident, suggesting a government conspiracy to cover up the crime. Yet in that accusatory article, the Daily Caller left out the fact that its employee originally, and eroneously [sic], accused the Secret Service of running him over, and did it on the Daily Caller site. That fact was conveniently flushed down the memory hole.
Referring to “tweets” does not substantiate that pack of lies.
And no matter how many dozen times he updates this piece or links it on Twitter, he is still dodging that core issue. As if he never said the above.
Keep pretending, Boehlert. As I said, that is your Tactic #1: If you said something indefensible, pretend you never said it.
While you’re doing that, enjoy this video:
Whether I subscribe to every word or not, it’s certainly more accurate than Boehlert’s rewriting of history. Add this to the list of Boehlert lies and distortions, including the following, which he has also failed to address:
- Distorted a quote from blogger See Dubya, taking See Dubya’s quote about one of two possible scenarios and turning it into a positive claim by See Dubya.
- Falsely claimed that Jamil Hussein was “under arrest” — and then refused to correct the error . . . in a column about warbloggers’ failures to correct errors. (See? Today’s irony is not without precedent.)
- Fibbed about claims made by opponents of the Swift Boat Veterans for Truth — and then got caught with his pants down by Tom Maguire.
