Media ‘faux outrage’ douches: Daily Beast reporter mocks World War II vets

http://twitter.com/#!/iowahawkblog/status/385233198910676993

Yes, he did.

http://twitter.com/#!/Bencjacobs/status/385215141291114496

Ben Jacobs of Newsweek and The Daily Beast took to Twitter to expose his douchebaggery. As Twitchy reported, Honor Flight World War II veterans knocked down the government shutdown barricades on the National Mall in order to visit the memorial to veterans. The vets have reportedly been threatened with arrest now.

To “real journalist” Ben Jacobs, this was an opportunity to mock both veterans and those who are rightly outraged by the ludicrous government barricades.

Jacobs wasn’t alone. The foul Jonathan Chait was the first to jump aboard the douche-train. He then mocked “faux outrage.”

Poor persecuted Chait!

Fellow New York Mag-er Stefan Becket upped the jackassery both in reply to Chait and Jacobs.

http://twitter.com/#!/stefanjbecket/status/385217154117017600

Pathetic.

Twitter users rightly gave them the business.

http://twitter.com/#!/bradcundiff/status/385236672243593217

And Iowahawk brings it all home with some snark perspective:

Bingo.

JPMorgan’s Stock Falls With Bank’s Trading Revenues Amid Big Legal Costs

Despite a little more volatility in the last three months of the year, America’s largest bank by assets is in a trading rut. It also had $990 million in legal charges.

JPMorgan Chairman and CEO Jamie Dimon Getty Images Chip Somodevilla

In the last three months of 2014, JPMorgan Chase, had earnings per share of $1.19, or a net income of $4.9 billion, down from $5.3 billion in the fourth quarter of last year. The bank’s profit slide of 6.6% from the fourth quarter of last year also fell short of analysts’ expectations of $1.31, and the bank’s stock is down more than 4.5% to $56.17 in late morning trading. The bank, the largest in the United States by assets, was weighed down by $990 million worth of legal charges.

In November, JPMorgan was one of six large banks to pay big fines to settle charges from British and American regulators that its traders had manipulated the foreign exchange market. JPMorgan’s Chief Financial Officer Marianne Lake said the new charge was in “large part an incremental for foreign exchange.” The Justice Department is conducting its own investigation of the foreign exchange market.

“Banks are under assault,” JPMorgan’s Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Jamie Dimon said on a call with reporters. “We have five or six regulators coming at us on every issue.”

The bank’s large and lucrative trading businessess saw sizable declines in revenue, with fixed income trading revenue sinking 23% from last year to $2.5 billion. The bank attributed the decline to “lower revenues in credit-related and securitized products” along with the sale of some businesses, including physical commodities trading. Not counting those sales, the fixed income business still saw a 14% declined in revenue, while equity trading revenue of $1.1 billion was up 25%, which the bank credited to more revenue from derivatives based on stocks and services to hedge funds.

The poor trading results, which are expected across Wall Street, were previewed late last year by Lake.

In a December speech, Lake projected a “high teens” decrease in trading revenue, eight percentage points coming from exiting commodities trading businesses, about $300 million.

Lake also said there had been an “uptick in realized in volatility particularly in foreign exchange and [interest] rates,” but said it was “low relative to where you would expect it to bein a m ore vibrant market.” Banks with large trading operations like JPMorgan tend to generate more revenue in more volatile markets, as larger swings in prices encourage more trading.

“It’s true to say volatility did pick up across asset classes,” Lake said Wednesday. “The [foreign exchange] business did well, and the the remaining commodity business did well on clients trading around oil.” Oil prices plunged in the last three months of the year and have contiued to fall.

With the exception of some choppiness in October, markets have stayed relatively quiet, with bankers and traders wondering where higher activity could come from. “It’s possible that while we’re going to see a little bit more volatility and hopefully that presents more opportunity, it’s likely the first half of next year at least is going to … continue to be challenging,” Lake said in December, and she said today that there were “no dramatic changes” in the trading environment in the beginning of the year.

Tom Morello rages against Seattle cafe for not treating him like a VIP

That’s the trouble with communists, they only think the rules apply to the little people.

Over the weekend Tom Morello of Rage Against the Machine got his elitist shorts in a bunch because he wasn’t immediately seated in a Seattle restaurant that was already filled to capacity. He took to Twitter to share the epic “don’t you know who I am?” moment with all his fans.

Disgusting: Andrew Sullivan gay-baits late Ed Koch, blames for NYC AIDS crisis

http://twitter.com/#!/sullydish/status/297419622007844864

As Twitchy reported, former New York City Mayor Ed Koch passed away this morning at 88. The colorful, widely beloved Koch was rumored to be gay but never confirmed or denied it.

Koch didn’t owe you a damn thing concerning his private life. It’s none of our business and you’re a horrible person if you think otherwise.

— Nathan Wurtzel (@NathanWurtzel) February 1, 2013

Exactly. Unfortunately, vile hack Andrew Sullivan has no qualms when it comes to debasing himself. He’s seen fit not only to engage in good, old-fashioned gay-baiting, but also to suggest that Koch was responsible for New York City AIDS crisis:

Of course, no one – straight or gay – is entirely defined by their sexual orientation. But it’s a core part of your personality – and Koch was simply too old, too self-loathing, and too prickly to change. Here’s the money quote when he was asked about it:

What do I care? I’m 73 years old. I find it fascinating that people are interested in my sex life at age 73. It’s rather complimentary! But as I say in my book, my answer to questions on this subject is simply “Fuck off.” There have to be some private matters left.

Of course they do. And I sure don’t want to know about Ed Koch’s sex life, if he had one. But the plain fact of your orientation is not the same as the details of your sex life. And when you are such a public figure and single and your city is grappling with an epic health crisis among gay men, it does become other people’s fucking business – especially if he was inhibited from a more aggressive response because of not wanting to seem gay.

That’s just the sort of sick slop that gleeful lefties like these delightfully lap up:

Ed Koch is dead. Still dead are the thousands of gay men and people of color he abandoned during the height of the AIDs crisis. RIP, meh.

— Wile E. Quixote (@ScottLinnen) February 1, 2013

I’m stunned papers r portraying Ed Koch as a gay advocate. A closeted gay man who didn’t handle the AIDS epidemic for fear of being outed.

— GuinnessLover (@Mayati) February 1, 2013

@teenmom4evr Vile to call someone gay? I did it for years, not just now. Nothing wrong with gay. But his avoidance of AIDS action was awful.

Celebrities join to ‘demand a plan’ on gun violence … from someone or other

http://twitter.com/#!/AaronWorthing/status/282271660189560832

It must mean something that the very first celebrity to appear in a new video to “Demand a Plan” on gun violence is Jamie Foxx. Even if you aren’t familiar with his movies, such as current release “Django Unchained,” you probably heard something about his recent appearance promoting the film on “Saturday Night Live,” where he explained to the audience that his character gets to “kill all the white people” in the movie. “How great is that?” Great, we guess, as long as there weren’t any guns involved.

The national conversation on guns that so many still are demanding is well underway, whether they like the direction it’s taking or not. As Twitchy has reported, the NRA finds itself in a no-win position. The organization was criticized for not making a statement immediately after the Sandy Hook Elementary School massacre, and demonized by politicians and celebrities alike during its presser today. “Demand a Plan” has become a rallying cry, but like it or not (and many in Hollywood certainly did not), the NRA did present a plan. Part of that plan was for Hollywood to take a close look at its own contribution to what Bob Costas called America’s gun culture.

“demand a plan” unless it’s the NRA’s plan, and in that case then “f&ck u” right? Celebrities…

— Cali (@thistleandfern) December 21, 2012

If only a predatory group of people who thrive off love of violence could step up and take action. Oh, whew: globalgrind.com/news/celebriti…

— Old Hoss Radbourn (@OldHossRadbourn) December 21, 2012

Also among the nearly 50 celebrities to appear is Beyoncé, who must have had an opportunity to demand a plan at some point during the fundraiser she and husband Jay-Z held for President Obama less than two months after the Aurora, Colo., theater shooting. We also recognized Jeremy Renner, the guy brandishing the handgun on the poster for “The Bourne Legacy.” Even Sarah Silverman manages to deliver six words in a row without an obscenity, so you know this is serious business.

The NRA’s plan scored two big thumbs down. So, what does anyone else have planned?

@_juliannemoore I stand with Julianne and demand a plan to end gun violence!!! No more guns!!!

That’s the ticket! Study suggests minimum wage should be $21.72

http://twitter.com/#!/MikeElk/status/301790040621711360

President Obama is pushing for the hourly minimum wage to be raised to $9, but according to a study by the Center for Economic and Policy Research, that’s not nearly enough. The study suggests that, in order to keep up with increased worker productivity, the minimum wage should be increased to $21.72 per hour. No, really:

The minimum wage should be $21.72, and that’s science: ccwc.me/XGajse

‘Don’t transition me, bro!’ Obamaspeak: Insurance is being ‘transitioned’

Derpitude: ‘Real journalists’ fall for vile Michelle Malkin parody account

http://twitter.com/#!/michellemalkin/status/251754875988344832

A pitiful Michelle Malkin parody account has apparently been floating around Twitter since August of last year. Most likely, its sheer lame-itude is what’s kept it under the radar until today, when it suddenly caught the attention of the illustrious Band of Merry Real Journalists made up of such luminaries as Keith Olbermann, Ana Marie Cox, and David Frum.

There's a Michelle Malkin parody account? With even more parody than the real one? And nobody's sent me the handle? #Harumph

— Keith Olbermann (@KeithOlbermann) September 28, 2012

Behold the kinds of tweets that captivated this trio of tools:

@KeithOlbermann Keith, don't get my blood pressure up. It's Friday. I have an entire weekend of nail-biting paranoia to plan for. Jesus.

(The parody account replaced the letter “L” in Michelle’s name with capital “I.”)

Ana Marie Cox, who has a history of opening her mouth about things she hasn’t properly read, gladly retweeted a fake tweet:

RT @MicheIleMaIkin: Libs are using Nickleodeon and Teenage Mutant Liberal Turtles to implant socialism. // Funny because it's true!

— Ana Marie Cox (@anamariecox) September 28, 2012

Mocking Michelle Malkin’s drawing attention to pig Jason Biggs is totally hilarious, see?

Doltish bigot David Frum fell for the same tweet as Cox:

RT @MicheIleMaIkin: Libs are using Nickleodeon and Teenage Mutant Liberal Turtles to implant socialism. Turtles spew hatred and intolerance

— David Frum (@davidfrum) September 28, 2012

One would think that even vapid troglodytes like Cox and Frum would’ve at least been able to put their combined seven brain cells together and figure out that the real Michelle Malkin would never put out anything resembling the garbage in the parody tweets. Common sense eluded them, however. Malkin was disgusted, and she rightly gave them the business:

And @anamariecox @keitholbermann @davidfrum all fell for the fake account and spread the slander against me.

— Michelle Malkin (@michellemalkin) September 28, 2012

Remember, folks. They are #realjournalists and I'm #justablogger

— Michelle Malkin (@michellemalkin) September 28, 2012

And none of them will apologize.

— Michelle Malkin (@michellemalkin) September 28, 2012

And of course no apology from @davidfrum @keitholbermann @anamariecox #realjournalists

— Michelle Malkin (@michellemalkin) September 28, 2012

After learning that the parody account was, in fact, a parody account, Cox continued to make an idiot of herself:

So @michellemalkin may be a fake account (?) but the opinions expressed are, well, I guess we could call them "real"? Truthy at least.

— Ana Marie Cox (@anamariecox) September 28, 2012

Lesson: After Akin, flag-gate, birtherism, Seamus, 47%, I am prepared to believe all kind of crazy shit that conservatives might say.

— Ana Marie Cox (@anamariecox) September 28, 2012

She finally did apologize, but not without slickly qualifying it:

@michellemalkin I'm sorry RT'd without disclaimer that parody account Tweet. You deserve to have your views represented accurately.

— Ana Marie Cox (@anamariecox) September 28, 2012

@michellemalkin I mean, I do find some of your views mockable but you should only be mocked for the ones that are actually yours. I'm sorry.

— Ana Marie Cox (@anamariecox) September 28, 2012

Frum, however, didn’t even attempt a half-hearted fauxpology:

My mistake, that was a parody account. I can't think why I was fooled!

— David Frum (@davidfrum) September 28, 2012

Translation: Michelle Malkin didn’t actually tweet that stuff, but, like, she totally would have, because racist and meanypants and stuff!

Keith Olbermann, who thought the parody account was the bee’s knees, felt that he was the victim in all this, and he demanded that Malkin apologize:

I retweeted nothing from this fake account. You owe me an apology. You are not adult to offer it RT @michellemalkinhttp://t.co/NJuRZeUI

— Keith Olbermann (@KeithOlbermann) September 28, 2012

— Keith Olbermann (@KeithOlbermann) September 28, 2012

So, so mockworthy …

@michellemalkin It only proves how deeply gullible the Left is. Which is why they fell for Obama. @keitholbermann @anamariecox

@KeithOlbermann for someone you claim is insignificant you seem to spend a lot of time tweeting about her

— Bob Weiden (@bobwnyg) September 28, 2012

Um @KeithOlbermann is no journo RT @michellemalkin: And of course no apology from @davidfrum @KeithOlbermann @anamariecox #realjournalists

Thank goodness the MSM is well-stocked with grownups like those three. Otherwise, we might be in real trouble.
