sunday accusations in the washington post that jason leopold impersonated
joel lauria and called mark carallo to try to get a confirmation of the rove
indictment. only the circumstantial evidence, that lauria had recently
given leopold his cell phone number that was digit off the number the
impersonator gave corallo, was presented in the article. the rest of the
article sounded like a republican war speech replacing 9-11 references with
cocaine/drug references with no argument other than rhetorical
my take is that lauria was played by corallo. if lauria is going to write
a smear article in the washington post over a very controversial story, then
he better check and cross-check his facts. where is the corallo cell phone
record of the impersonator conversation that could possibly link it to
leopold? this poor journalism is further proof of the near total
deterioration of journalism standards accomplished by rove, cheney,
wolfowitz, feith, perle, ledeen, kristols, bolton and company.
disinformation and rhetorical trickery are the new norms of journalism and
because these standards operate in the mainstream press they can leverage
the absence of standards against adherence to standards in the blogs and
elsewhere on the internet.
the lauria article about the cell phone conversation between corallo and an
impersonator epitomizes and mimics the luskin statements to the press last
monday. a rove lawyer or spokesman makes a statement unconfirmed by anyone
and it becomes "instant truth". lauria never even considered the
possibility that he was played by corallo and that there never was a phone
conversation. my guess is that the rove team discovered lauria's phone
number and that he recently gave it to leopold because they have leopold
under surveillance and thought maybe they could intimidate him off the
irregardless the lauria article is so weak that i am sure that truthout is
going to smack it to smithereens and that lauria's stupidity will actually
strengthen the truthout story regarding the rove indictment. i think the
lauria article is further proof of rove's desperation and the product of a
media manipulation addict who can't stop despite the fact that he has been
charged with crimes for doing so and the only way out was for him was to
surrender evidence against the vice-president which will make him not only
the most hated porcine operative ever by the democrats but the republicans
as well attaining ultimate traitor status. the walls are closing in and
rove is freaking his shit knowing that he may go down as the most unpopular
political scumbag in history and that he faces a very lonely rest of his
we will post truthout lauria response ASAP.
