Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Thursday, February 20, 2014

Brent Bozell, the conservative media watchdog who has made a career out of criticizing the mainstream media for lapses of bias and ethics, has been using a "forced" ghostwriter on all his newspaper columns and books. The media reporter Jim Romenesko broke the story that Bozell has been claiming credit for work by Tim Graham, who works at the Media Research Center founded by Bozell. The Quad-City Times announced that it is dropping Bozell's syndicated column because of the issue. TPM notes, "Along with railing against dishonesty in the media, Bozell also had a penchant for calling journalists 'lazy' in the columns that Graham wrote for him."

This is good news.

The next step is to find who was paid to write George W. Bush's term papers at Yale. I'd frankly add Mitt Romney and Ted Cruz to that list, and virtually everyone else for whom the description "sociopath" has floated through our minds.

The accusations of plagiarism continue to pile up for Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul, with new reports that an op-ed he wrote in September bears passages that closely resemble an opinion piece that had been published a week earlier.

The instance joins a growing number of Paul's works, including speeches, his book and congressional testimony that outlets including POLITICO, MSNBC and Buzzfeed have found to contain sections that appeared copied.

The print media doesn't write it's own columns either, they are bots.

Has been for a long time, but the numbers of bots now are huge.

HAR~HAR~

This unfortunately is the narrative of todays "conservative".

Pompous Arrogant Fake's, (or in their vernacular, "virtues")!

Brent Bozell is a nobody. Just a freakish hack paid by Fox News to rant and rave. Less intelligent than Coulter and Malkin, and less humorous than Miller. I usually don't mind watching most right wing pundits because of their entertainment value. But Bozell is just a waste of time.

Hilarious.

I can't wait to hear his excuses.

"and less humorous than Miller."

Considering a pile of dog crap is funnier than Miller, that's quite the zinger.

A most important attribute that every American must develop is to never accept as fact what the MSM reports....whether it be L/R or about what Brent Bozell (or anyone else) did or did not do. Be proud and cynical instead of their gullible fool.

MSM reporting is mostly propaganda and hype, ultimately or subliminally intended to sway viewers politically, but most importantly to create an incentive to draw eyeballs for the biggest propaganda message of all, advertising.

I would further suggest that 9-11 was either created or used to make us into news junkies. Thanks to Edward Bernays etc and those who own the media, there are now experts at sucking the public into a web that never benefits the public.

I proudly and cynically say Bozell is a liar and a fraud.

Lets look into the fake Obama twitter account run by Organizing for America that sends out fake Obama messages.
