#1 Unless apologies are the natural result of said egg placement, color me uninterested.

#3 Yeah, you are the useful idiots of the Socialist party. Never going to make a big "I'm sorry" statement to your audience.

#5 Wake me up when 'journalists' start serving consecutive terms for manslaughter for the deaths caused by their lying.

#6 Much as I dislike Don Henley's politics, his song "Dirty Laundry" was spot on. I'm sure he'd say something mealy mouth about how he shouldn't have done it now, just like Kurt Vonnegut and his short story "Harrison Bergeron".

#7 Harrison Bergeron

Dirty Laundry

I figured I should provide links because everyone might not know them. I figure most of us here at Rantburg have read "Harrison Bergeron" but not as many might have heard the song. It's a very hard song to find because as a liberal, I think Henley feels ashamed of it.

#8 More reporters are admitting fault for not taking this possibility more seriously.

Sure, sure. It's all part of the plan.

#9 Thank you, Silentbrick, for the Vonnegut story.

#10 More reporters are admitting fault for not taking this possibility more seriously.

...only to go on and not name a single 'reporter' who admitted fault. That's because these assholes never admit a mistake. Did the NYT ever apologize for Walter Duranty? Did Mel Gibson ever apologize for Lethal Weapon 4?

#12 Liberal media FINALLY admit they made a mistake dismissing Wuhan Lab leak theory just because Trump backed it: Washington Post, New York Times and ABC pundits say some 'have egg on their face'

#13 Having a few talking heads and a reporter or two saying other reporters got it wrong does not constitute any credible or serious admission of wrongdoing on their part.

#15 F---ing liars. Why do they still have jobs?

An incompetent surgeon is stripped of his license to practice medicine. A lawyer who commits perjury is disbarred. Ditto for other professionals who betray the trust society has placed in them.

Why do we tolerate journalists who lie?

Who accuse their political enemies of lying when the journalists themselves are burying the truth?

When will these disgusting shills face consequences?

#17 I'm sorry, can you point out which ones are actually journalists? I am familiar with the shills and propagandists but actual reporters. maybe Peter Doocy at times?
