I want to be a journalist. I mean, heck, who would want a job where you don’t have to think and you don’t have to research — all you have to do is emote. That’s what emotive New York Times “journalist” Nick Kristof did when he wrote a sob story about a young man with a bizarre brain tumor. Kristof assured us that the young man was practically dying in a gutter because, thanks to the absence of ObamaCare, no one would treat him. Krisof made the young man the poster child for passing ObamaCare.
Except it’s all a lie. Well, not all of it. The young man exists, as does his tumor. Everything else is a lie. Read Michelle Malkin to find out the details. What’s really shocking is that the truth didn’t involve months of research in the far-off out-posts of the known world. Michelle just picked up a phone. Kristof, apparently, couldn’t be bothered. I guess Kristof can now take his rightful place in the Jayson Blair Hall of Fame at the New York Times.
UPDATE: Welcome to all the readers who followed this link, whether from Lucianne, or Wizbang, or elsewhere. Ironically, this is not one of my meatier posts. Instead, I’m merely passing on useful information that you definitely won’t read in the New York Times. I invite you to go to the main page of my blog and check it out. I have a few more substantive pieces there that might entice you to return again some day.
