The story about the Babson professor who was fired after we first wrote a blog about his Facebook post “joking” about Iran blowing up American cultural sites has gone international. Everyone and their mother has heard about it now, and after initially being ignored and not credited for breaking the story, we’re finally being recognized for it by the mainstream media now that there is blame to go around. Sam Dean is a blue checkmark from the LA Times.
Oh my God, it’s that guy from that thing.
They even got matching haircuts.
Sammy posted on Twitter that we are an “alt right tabloid website” responsible for the professor’s demise.
To him, and lots of blue checkmark guardians of the news, everything they don’t like is “alt right.” The mainstream media has become a parody of itself, and seeks to discredit legitimate news outlets with their meaningless labels.
I’m just gonna point out that a few days ago Sammy’s newspaper wrote the most laughable op ed in history, crying about Ricky Gervais hilarious speech at the Golden Globes.
So I guess finding a British liberal’s standup comedy humorous makes you alt right now. Who knew?
Even more hilarious was the coverage from Washington Post reporter Teo Armus. And in classic hardcore journo fashion he posts pictures of himself on Twitter writing on a notepad.
Nothing gets by him. Not with that notepad handy.
Here’s what he had to say about Turtleboy in the Bezos Daily News.
Bruh, here is a link to your newspaper crediting us with breaking a story about unprecedented corruption in the Massachusetts State Police that led to the resignation of the Colonel and five other overpaid hacks. Why would your employer cite and link a “tabloid-blog hybrid” in a serious story like that? Weird.
Guess who he linked to in his story? Was it our original blog about the Babson professor? Nope. It was this asshole’s hit piece from 2014.
Clive “Spanky” McFarlane. A man whose obsession with Turtleboy led to his firing. Cool source dude!
And who can forget all those Patriots blogs we’ve written this year? God knows we just can’t stop talking about sportball around here!
By the way Teo, Clive worked at the Turtlegram for like 30 years. They fired him with zero warning and didn’t give him a chance to say goodbye to anyone. This is your future. Good luck shitdick!
