Damn it.


You know why I ***lost*** all desire to rush a rumor out to print on social media or my blog long ago?


Morons who just HAD to get this out there rushed out a name to blame for Epstein.

Take a bow, you f**king morons at The Gateway Pundit.

You RUSHED OUT the name of the WRONG PERSON as the warden in charge of the MCC during Epstein's death.

That person is now gonna have bunch of LUNATICS after her demanding to know who paid her off & where the computer is.
This on top of the OTHER story GateWay Pundit f**ked up yesterday is why social media is a cesspool.

If **I** had f**ked 2 or 3 stories like this, you'd never hear from me again. I'd leave the internet in shame.
No joke, I have people DM'ing me ALL THE TIME trying to rush stuff out there. They want to use my visibility to HELP THEM spread the latest piping hot rumor out the door to the social media universe.

Some of them even get testy with me because I won't help them.
I am not in this for clicks.

If I ***wanted*** to run a doom crying account where I took ever damn rumor that surfaced & rushed it out framed for MAXIMUM EFFECT AND IMPACT, do you think I'm not intelligent enough to be doing that, if that's what I wanted to do?
You get the reputation you deserve.

If you are ***constantly*** blowing your own trumpet while rushing the latest hot rumor out the door because you want to be first and hey it's too good to check anyway....you are going to be wrong much of the time.
Maybe 15 years ago being wrong didn't matter that much every now and then, you printed a retraction and you PROMISED TO DO BETTER IN THE FUTURE.

We live in a TOTALLY DIFFERENT social media age now.

We live in the age of flash outrage mobs, often ginned up by BULLSHIT.
We know and are mad about LEFTIST outrage mobs that get ginned up by lies, bullshit and innuendo framed to cause maximum outrage.

Did you know OUR OWN SIDE has people who've found their niche doing the SAME THING?
And I don't mean to shock you or anything, but these people who do this on both sides don't believe half the crap they shovel out there. They're following a BUSINESS MODEL that works.

It's about the $$$$.
Be SMARTER for God's sake, that's all I'm asking.

I'm sick and tired of people filling my mentions and my DM's with the latest panic-mongering, outrage mob fostering crap from the usual people on the Right following that stupid business model.
And don't try to defend these goons to me. These are not 'honest mistakes' at this point. It's happened to these same outlets, bloggers, accounts far far too many times.

They know **exactly** what they are doing. There are not accidents and they don't care about accuracy.
