And The Funny Paper's credibility ratchets lower still

Oh – another thing: The Funny Paper has been once again caught flat footed with the SoWa crash. Flat footed, with their pants down around their ankes.

Really – how bad do they look? They have cheered every single lie about SoWa on for years, never ever doing their job by asking a single skeptical question or revealing that nothing - literally nothing –was happening according to plan.

For years the critics have been pointing out all the ways in which SoWa is failing, and The Funny Paper stonewalled. Now, nine years after the plan was concocted, every single criticism has come to reality.

And The Funny Paper proves once again that it is not a real newspaper, but rather, simply a propaganda rag.

Rob, that is impossible. The Funny Paper's credibility cannot possible ratchet lower.

In an article from msnbc.com, the journalists there are also exposing themselves:

"Whether the student paper that started the story was a victim of a ruse or helped perpetuate one, the young journalists violated basic ethical principles, said Art Caplan, director of the Center for Bioethics at the University of Pennsylvania and an msnbc.com columnist.

“There are some topics that just cry out for verification,” Caplan said...

...That can be difficult, even for veteran journalists, McBride added.

"We are no longer the gatekeepers of information," she said. "We have to act as if we're providing perspective where truth is elusive."

...Or rather they are shamelessly throwing out dumb concepts in the hopes we don't care to learn the truth.
