Huh. I thought assaulting anyone was already a crime

…including reporters.

H.R _____ Journalist Protection Act
To amend title 18, United States Code, to provide a penalty for assault against journalists, and for other purposes.

But I guess I was wrong. So unless/until this passes, I’ve got this little list…

But seriously: This makes so-called “journalists” a special protected class, somehow more important than the little serfs being educated informed by their betters.

How special? Read § 120 (d)(2) for the oh-so-carefully crafted definition of “journalists.” Bloggers need not apply.

I could’ve sworn I’d once read something about “equal protection of the laws”. Guess I was mistaken; my bad.

Feel free to tell Rep. Eric Swalwell [D-CA-15] (yeah, you knew it had to be a Dim… and from the PRK, right) what you think.

[UPDATE] Oops: “Authorized Urinalists”

I originally posted this on my personal blog, Random Acts of Gibberish, but it’s too funny not to share with a wider audience.


Oopsie, someone has a little explaining to do

…to the ATF.

AJC.com, the Atlanta Urinal-Constipation just published a story claiming a reporter built an assault rifle.

I helpfully emailed authorized urinalist, Ken Foskett to explain that if that’s true, someone is going to prison.

Interestingly, it took some searching to find Foskett’s email address. AJC killed the link to the reporter staff directory. I guess they got tired of getting negative feedback from people who know they’re full of shit. Fortunately, they left the actual directory online; you should bookmark it.

Nice try, Foskett.

Yeah, you edited the article from this

to this

but you forgot to change the graphic.

I just had to send Foskett one more email.

Nice try.

But you forgot to change the graphic.

Fortunately, I kept screen shots of everything in case the ATF should ask.

I expect that graphic will disappear from the AJC site in 3… 2… 1…

UPDATE, 2/8/2018: They finally realized they still had the “assault rifle” image loading. It’s now gone. Further, they’ve set the original URL…

http://investigations.blog.ajc.com/2018/02/06/home-diy-project-build-your-own-ar-15-semi-automatic-assault-rifle/

..to redirect to this one, so “assault rifle” no longer appears in the address bar.

https://www.myajc.com/blog/investigations/home-diy-project-build-your-own-untraceable/GP69yaLThpUXrLeCLYYxKN/

But no mention that they edited the original story for content.
