That damned Stuff

What's Mallard Fillmore raving about today?

The New York Times.

Mallard Fillmore is accusing the New York Times of making stuff up?


Pot, meet kettle.

Christ, Tinsley makes it so easy he just takes the fun out of it.

Making stuff up?
Slanted commentary posing as news?
Ignoring news they don't like?

Yes, yes, tell us more, Batshit!

It's nice to know that Brucie has actually mastered a skill. Granted, that skill is projection, but at least it's something.

Oh, and hey, there's this, which points out a making-stuff-up/slanted-commentary/ignoring-news-they-don't-like trifecta.

Maher has diminished himself in elevating Breitbart, who returned the favor by telling his host "you're not libertarian, you're socialist." The fabricator's entire web empire is characterized by this sort of Overton Window-yanking insanity. You cannot find a single mention of Iraq or Afghanistan contracting scandals on his sites, for example, but you can find the latest ginned-up outrage over White House Christmas ornaments or an NEA conference call in between the Victoria Jackson posts.

If Breitbart published such ravings behind a tabloid cover of Batboy or Elvis sightings or world's fattest couple to wed, we would be able to laugh. Instead, Breitbart presents fiction as truth, which isn't funny or thrilling. There is no laughing at how Breitbart, Hannah Giles, and James O'Keefe III smeared ACORN, taking down the largest and most-successful anti-poverty organization in America at the height of a recession even though no one at any ACORN office did anything illegal. Major media swallowed the hoaxers' narrative whole although the hoax videos themselves disprove it.

Those ACORN workers might have been anyone; when Breitbart escaped serious repercussions from the media, he went on to slime Shirley Sherrod.

So tell us, Batshit: Where's the outrage? ...You hypocritical racist sack of crap.

The is the New York Times that credulously published the Bush Adminstration's war propaganda, right?

I mean, seriously, why is Mallard criticizing his ally?

Why did he write like that?

The goggles do nothing!

Hurrah for another comic that's barely worth the effort of commenting on.

You hate the New York times. We get it. Most liberals don't take it seriously either. But you have to admit that even the worst writer there is a step up from scrawling a predictable duck cartoon every day.

I agree, it's disgusting how uncritically they accepted the warmongers' justifications for violating the sovereignty of Iraq.

Why is the syndicate rerunning a strip from 2004, though? Did Tinsley drop the N-word in the strip he originally submitted for this day or something?
