I can take honest criticism with the best of them. Usually, I welcome it.
But when you're like this guy, who pretends to know what he's talking about when it comes to journalism, you need to sit down.
firstname.lastname@example.org thinks that his attempts at research are better than mine. How cute of him. Allow me to eviscerate his argument with my eyes closed as I type.
The whole thing centers on an article I wrote about California attorney Orly Taitz and her various filings here in U.S. District Court. John Lloyd mistakenly finds fault with my reporting, because he seemingly can't figure out the difference between July and September.
Note his foolish argument here:
BELOW THE BELTWAY (BTB) published the affadavit in support of Taitz's Friday motion for Land to recuse himself, is signed Robert D. Douglas, of Alma, Ga. BTB claims "It states that Douglas was in a coffee shop waiting for the 12th Street federal courthouse to open for a hearing on Maj. Stefan Frederick Cook in July when U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder entered" a shop and spoke with Judge Land.
The affidavit states no such claim of it being in July. The last day it was heard was on September 16th, not July 16th. However, BTB goes on to claim Holder could not have been there with the claim the he was in Los Angeles and uses as proof, "DOJ press release here. Contemporaneous news article about the California trip here. " Of course, continuing the error, those are proof that Attorney General Holder was in Los Angeles on July 15th rather than September 15th.
Hey, John! Did you know there were two separate cases here in Columbus this year involving Taitz that are very similar? No? You didn't take the 30 seconds to research this and discover that your whole argument makes you look like a fool because you didn't know that Maj. Stefan Cook's hearing was in July and Capt. Connie Rhodes' was in September?
Did you see in the affidavit that Douglas states he was in town for Cook's hearing, which was in July? Sept. 16 was the day Judge Clay Land tossed out Rhodes' complaint, which. surprisingly, is different from Cook's.
Did I go too fast for you? Thought so. You probably should leave the thinking to those who can do it.
