Schilling : Fuck The New York Times

Posted in Baseball, politics, The Marketplace at 4:59 pm by

“I’m glad that a guy who went to Yavapai Community College (who the hell knows if he even graduated from that fine institution) has enough time on his hands now that his arm has fallen off to school us on this whole financial mess…specifically about how it is all the fault of the party that hasn’t been in control of anything since before Jacoby Ellsbury was in Junior High School.” So declares Rog after reading Curt Schilling’s latest essay on the U.S.’s pending financial collapse.  “Many of the senators who protected Fannie and Freddie, including Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton and Christopher Dodd, have received mind-boggling levels of financial support from them over the years,” stressed Schilling.  After one 38 Pitches commentator reminded the Red Sox lefty that John McCain’s own campaign manager, Rick Davis, received more than $30,000 a month for five years as president of an advocacy group assembled by Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac to defend them against regulation (“If slinging B.S. burns calories, you™re going to make weight easy, Curt”), the hurler-turned-blogger questioned the source.

HAHA! That™s your point of reference? The NYT! Seriously? A paper run by people and writers who have made it clear that Governor Palin is the Anti-Christ and a group that couldn™t dislike Senator McCain more than they do??? That™s hilarious. I say that because both sides seem to be doing much of the same, but come on, you could shoot for another source that isn™t so blatantly biased and full of crap. Should be called the œNew York Enquirer

He’s got a point, and I would agree the New York Times is hardly infallible. For instance, they’re partial owners of a baseball team in New England that paid a guaranteed $8 million this season to a guy who hasn’t thrown a single pitch in anger.

    it seems that the mighty web has enabled partisans of every stripe to receive only the news they want to hear. i can’t think of any other explanation for omar minaya’s extension, anyway.

    Just read a “stop smiling” interview with gore vidal where he calls the NYT a “republican lie machine.”. Any way to get a vidal-schilling debate on?
