Not satisfied with smearing The Fogbow forum host Foggy, Jerome Corsi and WorldNetDaily have turned more of Internet YouTuber KenyanBornObamAcorn’s vendetta against The Fogbow into “news” in their new article: Sidekick duties: Causing trouble for Obama critics Claims interference with Taitz cases, shutting down Fox News host’s site. [Note that it is the policy of this blog not to publish or allow in comments the actual names of persons who speak on the Internet using aliases.] So who’s up for ridicule this time? Rikker – “Radical leftist”.
I guess WorldNetDaily and I share the same problem: slow news day.
I’ll let Rikker speak for himself; however, I do note that sometimes people in the heat of angry discussion make exaggerated statements. For example, I doubt that Obots have been at every single birther court hearing, or that they were really winking at the judge (attributed to Foggy). It is the nature of online media that there are different social norms at work. The lack of social cues leads discussions to spiral out of control where people say things they would never say in person.
This phenomenon works well for the smear artist like Jerome Corsi, who can pick and choose the worst in a large body of Internet dialog and make it appear to characterize the whole.
