Stupid Liberal Questions Answered, Part Two

The question this time comes from Mike Moran, writing in MSNBC's pseudo-blog, Hardblogging:
But should Eason Jordan lose his job for this? Or, to mine the deeper shaft here, was it wise for CNN to provide the enemies of free expression, critical thinking and The First Amendment with a victory on this count?
To answer the first part of your question, Mike, yes, he should lose his job. For base stupidity, if not slander.

Before I answer your second question, Mike, let me ask you a similar one of my own. When did you stop attending sleepovers for plump little boys at the Neverland Ranch? What? You say the question assumes facts that are not in evidence? Well, sauce for the goose and all that.

Now about the freedom of expression/First Amendment thing, if you check your copy of the Constitution you'll find that the Bill of Rights applies not only to leftist, military-loathing, pathetic mincing nancy-boy, elitist media-weasels; but to all Americans. That means bloggers, too. Even conservative bloggers.

As to critical thinking, I suggest you re-examine the matter of Dan Rather and his memos and compare the critical thinking skills of this icon of American journalism to those of the scruffy bloggers who exposed him.
