Boycotting the Washington Post

SCL neocon-leghumping rag purged by angry bloggers after Dan Froomkin is purged at the WaComPo. dKos (mostly):

In a move sure to ignite the left-wing blogosphere, washingtonpost.com columnist Dan Froomkin has been let go by the news organization for reporting the truth, rather than parroting Rovian/Rushbotlican screeds.

Conservative hack-columnist Charles "krap" Krauthammer even took Froomkin to task in one of his columns, calling Froomkin's analysis "stupid." As if Krauthammer never writes anything "stupid". The man's picture should be next to the word "stupid" in the fucking dictionary, for crying out loud.

In the end, Donald Graham and Fred Hiatt are moving the Post hard right. Their support for war was not just a kiss-up to power, but a real commitment to the neo-con way of looking at the world.

Froomkin was way too pro-Obama and way to liberal for the new Wa Poo.

Andrew Sullivan:

Dan's work on torture may be one reason he is now gone. The way in which the WaPo has been coopted by the neocon right, especially in its editorial pages, is getting more and more disturbing. This purge will prompt a real revolt in the blogosphere. And it should.

From Wonkette:

[The Washington Post has] abruptly fired its only liberal pundit, Dan Froomkin, who in past years did more than the rest of the Post op-ed staff combined to show how George W. Bush and Dick Cheney were careless law-breaking criminals from Hell.

Think about this one example: wretched columnist Richard Cohen, whom the Post passes off as one of its tenured liberal critics, was embarrassingly wrong about every possible aspect of the Iraq War — and when asked in 2006 to reflect on his hawkishness during the first Bush term, he wrote, “In a post-Sept. 11 world, I thought the prudent use of violence could be therapeutic.”

This pathetic person who was sneeringly wrong about very important war issues and then explained it all away, years later, with that sociopathic “quip” about human life, is still a weekly columnist at this newspaper, where the other op-ed “stars” include Charles Krauthammer, Bill Kristol, David Broder, Fred Hiatt, Jackson Diehl, George Will, David Ignatius, and Michael Gerson.

... and including war criminal/liar Paul Wolfowitz. From Glenn Greenwald:

In addition to his Rupert Murdoch perch at Fox, Krauthammer remains as a regular columnist at the Post, alongside fellow right-wing Obama haters such as Bill Kristol, George Will, Jim Hoagland, Michael Gerson and Robert Kagan -- as well as a whole bevy of typical, banal establishment spokespeople who are highly supportive of whatever the permanent Washington establishment favors (David Ignatius, Fred Hiatt, Ruth Marcus, David Broder, Richard Cohen, Howie Kurtz, etc. etc.). And that's to say nothing of the regular Op-Ed appearances by typical Krauthammer-mimicking neoconservative voices such as John Bolton, Joe Lieberman, and Douglas Feith -- and the Post Editorial Page itself.

And yet while all these assclowns continue their streak of racking up points in the Completely & Utterly WRONG column, they fire the talented and insightful Froomster. More from Jane. Oh, and I will no longer be linking to the new moonie times.

You forgot "whoremonger" next to Wolfowitz.

The Wash-Post is one of those right-wing rags that hopes to be able to bury the truth uncovered and rewrite history in the near-future, in a way that will exonerate the big bad-guys.

Another option is to think of animals in terms other than as 'pet.' Possessing animals is not the only way to show affection and concern for them. Who could ever ignored filigree Siberian hamster?" the famous pet of the Spain's server in one of the episodes of BBC comedy series.
