I smell a lawsuit cooking in the New Country.
You can expect the mainstream yellow print news media to treat us in the blogosphere with disdain, but that doesn’t mean that they should be allowed to print outright falsehoods about you. That is exactly what the UK newspaper did about the Gates of Vienna, and they need to retract their error and issue an apology and correction to set the record straight.
Lies, Damned Lies, and The Guardian
The farcical antics began long before today, however — we’ve been through a prodromal phase of several weeks during which the leftist mainstream media outlets (yes, I know that’s redundant) prepared and published their hit pieces on every writer, publication, and website they consider “xenophobic”, “racist”, or “extreme right-wing”.
Various sites in Norway and the rest of Europe have been rehashing all their material from last July and August. Photos of Fjordman and Robert Spencer have been dusted off and re-digitized. Anyone foolish enough to reply to press enquiries has been quoted out of context and had his words used against him.
In other words, ho-hum. Business as usual.
Gates of Vienna has come in for its share of slime, especially in the Norwegian press. We’re used to all that, and generally ignore it. However, one particular hit piece was so egregious that it required a response.
