Propa-Gannon!

The Daily Kos has an exhautive rundown of all things Gannon. For those who don't know, The Bush Administration is under heavy fire for possibly planting a fake reporter from a fake news organization into the White House Press Corp. The fake reporter "Jeff Gannon" (real name: James "J.D." Guckert) reported for a fake conservative news organization called "Talon News". Talon News is owned and operated by a Conservative political activist by the name of Eberle whom also runs GOPUSA, INC.

My personally opinion on the matter is when a reporter - be they conservative or liberal in bias - uses an alias and then manages to get White House press corp credentials 3 days after the launch of the website the reporter is employed by simply speaks volumes for a Presidential Administration that watonly pushes propaganda onto the American public and is immediate grounds for a full-fledged investigation ... leading upto possible impeachment (the latter because both George W. Bush and Scotty "Clueless" McClellan have been calling on and refering to Gannon at press briefings by name).

If that's not enough?

Gannon also appears to have been the source conservative collumnist Bob Novak used to out CIA agent Valerie Plame's identity to the public last year. Since Gannon has been outed first by the Blogosphere which then steamrolled into the corporate news agencies such as CNN and MSNBC, Gannon posted on Talon's website that he's calling it quits going so far as to that that "the liberals are after me because I'm conservative, I own a gun, drive an SUV, and am a born-again Christian". Gee, Mr. Gannon ... did you become born-again before or after you helped setup gay pornographic websites?


Talon News has also scrubbed from their website of all things Gannon ...

Did you notice "Bulldog"'s eery resemblance to your humble self?

Should I put the whole '8" cut' question to ya? :rofl:

This story is just too much fun, I'm reading about McClellan lying about the daily pass/hard pass thing and just can't figure out the hubris that could get him to trip himself up like that!

Well, his resemblence to me isn't that bothersome since I've got a good 3-4 month growth on my skull.

This whole J.D. Guckert thing though started out with a lot of disjointed fragments and -- as time goes on and more details are unearthed -- portions of those fragments are starting to peice together, forming some sense of a puzzle. Many people are commenting that J.D.'s private stuff regarding the homosexual escort services and what not are just salacious details that don't matter. At the outset, they're right -- they really don't or shouldn't matter. But now that evidence of J.D.'s presence in the WH Press Gallery in March 2003 has shown up (long before Talon News launched), those salacious fragaments regarding HotMilitaryStud et. al. are starting to look like potential peices to the puzzle at hand. As a result, J.D. personal life as a gay escort for hire is now fair game. Seriously - if I posted nude pics of myself on the internet wagging my privates, one could accurately deduce that I'm obviously not concerned about that whole "please respect my privacy" spiel.
