The New York Times has described Michael Goldfarb, the 32-year-old founder of conservative site Washington Free Beacon as an “all-around anti-liberal provocateur,”a “hawkish magnet of liberal scorn”
Michael Goldfarb, the so called journalist responsible for creating the lies surrounding Chuck Hagel. Also apparently responsible for many of the problems inflicting President Obama.
After reading the article I couldn't understand the verbiage used by the author.
The author and his entire article is supportive of Michael Goldfarb's lies and tactics as legitimate political journalism. Starting with the author's first opinion.
"All in all, it was a very bad day for Mr. Hagel, and a smashingly good one for the conservative political operative of the moment — Michael Goldfarb."
Some of the author's descriptions of Michael Goldfarb follow and there isn't a negative description in the entire article.
"blazed a trail"
"communications strategist" to the leading bêtes noires of liberals, the billionaire brothers Charles and David Koch."
"Mr. Goldfarb, known as a flamethrower on both sides of the aisle, has achieved unparalleled hybrid status in the process."
"he has combined a relatively new form of weaponized journalism, politicking and public policy into a potent mix."
"His signature political attack can best be described as gleeful evisceration, which at times has exposed him to charges of going too far and of getting too personal."
"As he tells it, he is simply trying to have fun while practicing his admittedly combative brand of politics — the humor of which, he said, his liberal critics are too self-serious to get."
"Mr. Goldfarb exhibited the same delight in raising the ire of his more liberal classmates, friends said"
It's ironic that the NYT published an article about a 'journalist' making up possible lies about politicians for personal gain, without investigating the truth.
