Famous Teabag-Beat Reporter Dave Weigel Apologizing Again

News

The illiterate who ineptly cuts-and-pastes things at "Fishbowl DC" (remember that site?) is trying to get some traffic for the long-ignored MediaBistro blog by posting some banal crap from that"JournoList" email group the media kids in town use to send emails to each other. What could turn that into some SEO traffic, two years after the Politico pretended it was a Hot Story for six hours? Why not claim that actual reporter Dave Weigel is the Washington Post's "conservative blogger" and make up some dispute with "liberal bloggers" and then throw in mentions of teabaggers, the Drudge Report, and Michael Calderone. And put "scathing e-mails" in the hed. Will that do it? Uh, probably not.


Weigel, who apparently spends half his time at the Post apologizing for the mild stuff he types on his blog or Twitter -- because the teabagger people he covers are notoriously thin-skinned -- wisely decided to keep this Media Bistro person from getting any desperately needed traffic. He apologized to his readers for whatever utterly uncontroversial things he typed on a private email list, quoted the allegedly offensive parts so they're out there for all to see, and hopefully that will be the end of it.

It is kind of shocking that the Post -- an awful newspaper that employs a dementia ward's worth of idiot old neo-con hacks who spew the most vile, dangerous bullshit on a daily basis -- ever hired somebody like Weigel. We have long admired his weird obsessions and actual shoe-leather reporting. But it's getting ridiculous that he is either forced or feels compelled to constantly apologize for everything. HEY, THE ATLANTIC, why don't you people solve this problem? Or Weigel, how about just start acting like a privileged asshole who can say/do whatever he wants. It's the way of the Washington Post!

Never apologize, never explain. [Dave Weigel]

Today we are having a Very Serious Conversation about how liberals are very uncivil and mean and terrible and vulgar, because a restaurant in Virginia very nicely asked Sarah Huckabee Sanders to GTFO, due to how she is an atrocious liar who works for a fascist. (The restaurant comped the cheese plates that had already been served.) Meanwhile the president is threatening 79-year-old black congresswomen on Twitter and ripping babies away from their parents and just generally being a fascist. BOTH SIDES DO IT, ISN'T THAT RIGHT, VERY SERIOUS PUNDITS?

Point is, Sarah Huckabee Sanders is doing her first White House press briefing in a week, assuming she doesn't wuss out like she always does. Will she lie? Will she cry? Will she be a sack of shit like she always is? Most importantly, has she managed to find a meal since she was kicked out of the Red Hen? We certainly hope she's managed to find a Chick-fil-A or something, as we wouldn't want Our Sarah to be forced to give a press briefing while hangry.

Let's liveblog and see what a foul asshole SHS feels like being today:

Last week, Nicole Arteaga of Peoria, Arizona received the devastating news from her doctor that her baby's development had stopped and that pregnancy would end in a miscarriage. Given the option of either a D&C or prescription medication, she chose to go with the prescription. Then, like all normal people do when they get a prescription, she went to a pharmacy to have it filled.

Unfortunately for her, Brian Hrenuic -- the pharmacist at the Walgreens she went to -- refused to give her that prescription, because he opposed it on "moral grounds."
