Peter Fallow -- Bizarro World Romenesko!!

If there were ever a time for an arrogant, drunken, lazy, ethically challenged and totally fictitious reporter to comment on the state of journalism, it is now!

Have they no shame?

The conservative attack dogs will stop at nothing, nothing I say, to besmirch the name of one of our top Professional Journalists, Seymour Hersh. (Incidentally, he gets his suits from the same tailor I use. For a Jew, he's really quite a smashing dresser. And of course he's very clever, just like the rest of them.)

What's the point of drudging up quotes like these (most of which were clearly taken out of context -- whatever that is). It's telling that some of them were highlighted by that notorious right-wing attack dog, Glenn Reynolds:

Arthur Schlesinger: "the most gullible investigative reporter I've ever encountered."

Jules Witcover: "Hersh's attributions generally fall short of normal journalistic yardsticks."

Ted Kennedy: ""Scurrilous."

Seymour Hersh: "If the standard for being fired was being wrong on a story, I would have been fired long ago."

It's just so unfair.

This damnable country. I feel like drinking again.
