The Reliability of Media Sources: A Wonkette Guide

We've gotten some requests to clarify how, exactly, we rank the reliability of various media sources. Here goes:

  1. Goat entrails: Called the Kennedy-Nixon race.

  2. Nostradamus: Hitler. Need we say more?

  3. Drudge Report: On top of all major weather phenomena.

  4. Media Whores Online: If they say it's Tuesday, it's Tuesday.

  5. Washington Times: Look here for the phases of the moon.

  6. Andrew Sullivan: Those Sontag Awards? Actually presented by Susan Sontag in an invitation-only ceremony each week.

  7. The Nation: How have they survived 100+ years? Lottery winnings.

  8. Ouija boards: John Zogby swears by them.

  9. Gawker: There's a reason only ugly people read it.

  10. The New York Times Magazine: Sex slaves on Main Street? Everyone knows they're on Elm!

This past weekend,'s founders showed the world how easy it is to de-platform white nationalists and racists when they banned all "support of Donald Trump and his administration" from their website, concluding they "cannot provide a space that is inclusive of all and also allow support for open white supremacy." Seems like people smart enough to decode a knitting pattern are also smart enough to decode Trump's not-so-hidden message of racism and white nationalism.

One day, God willing, my grandchildren will click open their history textbooks and read about the Central American migrant internment camps. They'll learn about sick kids, locked in cages, kept hungry and dirty and cold for weeks on end, and they'll be horrified.

"Bubbie," they'll say, "how could this happen in America? How could there be toddlers sleeping on the ground without blankets, without soap or toothbrushes to clean themselves?"

"I don't know. I wish I had done more. I'm ashamed," I'll say. We will all have to answer for this atrocity. But some of us will have to answer more than others. Not just the archvillains like Stephen Miller and John Kelly, but the people who kept right on doing their jobs, even as those jobs morphed into defending concentration camps.
