Loesch smelled blood and went after Karoli, tweeting the following:
Seriously? Crooks and Liars really ran whole hog with the WRONG IDENTITY in their @andrewbreitbart hitjob? They finally became their title.And:
@eddiebear generally not sucking out loud at the written word and rational thought isn't their strong suit, eitherAnd
It's not "owning up" to a half-cocked smear on a person when other people catch you. No courage no balls. Embarrassing for @karoli .And
Is that the same blue-eyed genius who claimed to know me and call me a racist when no one knows who the hell she is? (Rhetorical.)Loesch's husband Chris Loesch also joined in on the attacks but, as is his calling card, quickly ran away once I challanged him to back up his claims.
Aside from the general nastiness of the Loeschs blabbering, I want to draw particular attention to what Dana Loesch said in her blog post on the subject. She wrote about Karoli:
Fantastic journalism!Loesch of course fancies herself to be a journalist and a media critic. She is a frequent contributer to Big Journalism, and was on a panel about the media at the Shoe Me Institute's Blogger Conference.
But in order to be a real "journalist," you have to have at least some commitment to the truth, and Loesch's recent career has demonstrated anything but that. I don't have time to pay attention to even half of the information Loesch puts out, but I've documented numerous blatant falsehoods from her, which she never corrects. In fact, I'd like to offer a challenge. In order for Dana Loesch to continue to call herself a "journalist," I'm presenting
So there you have it. Karoli made a mistake and issued a correction as is the practice of journalists. Loesch, on the other hand, has made numerous false claims and never bothers to correct herself, as is the practice of something other than journalists.
But Dana Loesch calls herself a journalist. If she is serious about this claim, let's see her prove it.
