MRC's Graham Is Not Amused By Bestiality Jokes (Or Facts)
Topic: NewsBusters

Tim Graham declares himself to be a bit humor-chllenged in a May 6 NewsBusters post:

Some media liberals today are celebrating's Brian Hamacher with the "Best Lede Ever" for this snarky opener mocking Florida's legislature: "Floridians are going to have to start pulling up their pants and stop having sex with animals soon."

That's probably not so funny if you're proud to be a Floridian. And since when is it funny to be against bestiality?

Um, Tim? That's not where the humor is. It's about the -- forget it. Explaining a joke to someone so determined not to get it isn't worth the effort.

Not only is Graham humor-impaired, he's fact-impaired as well. He goes on to write that "Thomas Francis of the Broward County-Palm Beach New Times argued that 'zoophiles' are NOT 'deviants.'" No, he didn't; he wrote an article quoting someone who said that.

Graham is embracing the logical fallacy of assuming that a reporter agress with the opinions he reports. How can someone so willing to mislead be considered a legitimate media researcher?
