NewsBusters Attacks the Messenger, Part 2
Topic: NewsBusters

Shorter Terry Trippany: It's ABC's fault that a right-wing blogger outed one of Mark Foley's victims!

As Sadly, No! put it:

If some right-wing blogger on the Internet chooses to exhaustively research that alias, digging up photos and personal information, then trumpeting the findings in a press release — culminating in a post linked and publicized by a major flotilla of high-visibility right-wing chatterers, including Bozell’s foundation-funded Newsbusters — it is no one else’s responsibility.


Newsbusters doesn’t hire the best. They mimic the standard form of GOP misinformation well enough, but often ruin their efforts with obvious fudges and childlike fibbing.

We've previously noted NewsBusters' attempt to sully the credibilty of ABC's reporting on the Foley case.
