Shorter Noel Sheppard: Do As I Say, Not As I Do
Topic: NewsBusters

The lack of self-awareness NewsBusters associate editor Noel Sheppard has is nothing short of comical.

Sheppard devotes a Sept. 17 post to lamenting how the media have been "misrepresenting" Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell's remark that "The single most important thing we want to achieve is for President Obama to be a one-term president" and touting how the Washington Post's Bob Woodward "proved that the media have been misrepresenting this quote since it was made."

But just eight days earlier, Sheppard himself was misrepresenting a statement by Al Gore, falsely claiming that Gore said he "invented the internet."

Why is OK for Sheppard to misrepresent the words of other people, but not anyone else? He doesn't explain.

It seems that Sheppard would have us do as he says, not as he does.
