Mainstream Media Gets it Wrong About Me

Since when do I write for the unduly snobbish, left-wing Vanity Fair? I don’t.
But–more evidence how the Mainstream Media gets it wrong–the Lake County, California Record-Bee newspaper says I am a “Vanity Fair journalist,” and makes it seem as though I’m one of the conventional blind, deaf, and dumb who heaped praise on the unworthy, late Marla Ruzicka. Exactly the opposite. I wrote about in unflattering terms, because she was involved in equating our soldiers with Iraqi terrorists and groups that raised money for the murderers in Fallujah. Ditto for Palestinian terrorists. She loved them, too.
Here’s the quote in question from Record-Bee “reporter” John Lindblom’s “Top 10 stories: Ruzicka dies in car bomb in Iraq”:

Writing in Vanity Fair, journalist Debbie Schlussel noted that the New York Times, “Nightline” and CNN nominated her for sainthood ahead of the pope. The Wall Street Journal, Time magazine and London’s Guardian were among media that did their takes on the loss.

1) I don’t now nor have I ever written for snobby, left Vanity Fair. Perhaps they, without my permission, took a quote from my piece because Vanity Fair lefty nutcase, Christopher Hitchens, got his panties in a bunch over my anti-Marla Ruzicka piece.
2) I noted these publications to point out that they got their story wrong in gushing over this woman in death, when what she did in life was not so praiseworthy.
. Clearly the Record-Bee does not do its research. Or someone was in a hurry to get ready for his New Year’s Eve party.

Me thinks thou doth protest too much!!!
Like indy publishing, in the world of blogging ANY publicity is GOOD publicity, and it’s better to be credited as a writer for *Vanity Fair* than a foil for Artie Lange.

Somehow I don’t think a newspaper that serves 10,000 subscribers really qualifies as the “mainstream media”.

EminemsRevenge, maybe people like Debbie and others think the truth and accuracy are more important than publicity stunts not based in fact, like most of your posts.
I think Debbie has accomplished a great deal besides supposedly being Artie Lange’s “foil.”

My Man; Good point.And Artie (the 3rd rate comic,drunk,coke-head,ex-felon -attempted bank heist-)L . Will always be a looser. And Stern is lazy in not taking a active roll when Debbie is on.To busy,leaves it to the sub-par help.

From MEDIA WEEK—Vanity Fair reported a 3.8 percent dip in paid circulation for the same period, to 1.14 million—obviously FACTS are something alien to limbaughnistas

EmsRevenge: I was refering to the Record-Bee.
