Journalism 101 Lesson

Here’s a lesson that should be taught in journalism classes everywhere (if it isn’t already): If you’re going to fabricate a quote, then fabricate the person you’re quoting, or else you may encounter a problem.

If white racists are so prevalent that they may have an impact on the outcome of the election, as the media likes to report, then why would a reporter even need to create fictional quotes from crackers?

Update: Pretty much anything anybody says about Obama is racist.

Given the nature of the race-baiting reportage these days, it’s a good thing Barack and Michelle never had a son.

Doctor to reporters: It’s a boy!

Reporters to doctor: Did you say boy?

Doctor to reporters: Well, I meant male…

Reporters to doctor: Not the way we’re going to write it, pal.
