    So, in an example of "journalism"...a "journalist" (Alex Gordon) contacted a producer at the place that made the dog meme (Daily Wire). He emailed Daily Wire to ask:

    Hello, I'm with the Washington Post and I wanted to get confirmation this photo originated with you. And if you digitally removed Medal of Honor recipient James McCloughan and replaced him with a dog
    Boring's response:

    Alex, on the record, you've got to be ****ing joking. Please quote me on that.

    The reported this in the Post's "Fact Check" piece...

    Jeremy Boring COO at Daily Wire dismissed email questions about whether the altered photo originated from his publication
    (the watermark for Daily Wife is actually on the photo).

    James C. McCloughan, the person whose head was replaced by the dog had a comment as well...

    “In a phone interview on Wednesday, Mr. McCloughan, 73, who had not seen the image before a reporter sent it to him, said that he interpreted it as Mr. Trump recognizing the dog’s heroism,” the paper reports. “He certainly was not offended and laughed when he compared the two images.”

    Noting that Medal of Honor recipients accept the award on behalf of their teams, McCloughan said canines have often been key to successful missions.

    “This recognizes the dog is part of that team of brave people,” said McCloughan, emphasizing that military canines “are very courageous.”
    Because McCloughan is not a dunce.

    oh, you mean like when they covered it back in like 2014 when all the allegations were first made? and gave it plenty of attention then? and just had it as a brief mention now that he has actually been arrested? that kind of coverage? it's an update to something from that happened years ago. it isn't something really new, so doesn't need all the same coverage, just a quick update.

    Surprised the printed it, the list that is. They've been accused of putting their thumb on the scales, particularly in non-fiction.

    I wonder how many are bought as gag gifts...

    ^^^ High sales do not correlate to high quality (or really anything else, not even readership, just sales). Danielle Steel's had dozens of books at #1 on the NYT list, doesn't mean they're great (or even good) books.

    Wonder if they used the old Obama trick and had your company (ie The State Department) buy a bunch of the books.

    That said, people are complaining that the RNC bought a bunch of them. Power to them. They are after all a private entity.
