Last year, we detailed the close relationship between Newsmax columnist James Hirsen and actor Mel Gibson -- a relationship Hirsen did not disclose as he was promoting Gibson's films and serving as defender of Gibson by claiming he had apologized sufficiently for his 2006 anti-Semitic tirade.
Hirsen hasn't written much about Gibson lately, perhaps because most of the news about him has been bad, i.e., his divorce and affair, which resulted in an out-of-wedlock child.
Well, Gibson is in the news again, this time for dropping the N-word in a rant against his now-ex-mistress and mother of his out-of-wedlock child (specifically: You look like a f**king pig in heat and if you get raped by a pack of ni**ers it will be your fault"). And gee, what a surprise, Hirsen won't say a thing about it -- there's no mention of it in his July 6 "Left Coast Report." Hirsen deemed Lindsay Lohan's latest travails to be more newsworthy than Gibson.
