GannonGate – The Backlash, puppet conservative mouthpiece linked to Talon News has purportedly outed a lefty at White House briefings.  (Of course, this guy didn’t get a pass by blowing a white house staffer like Gannon/Guckert reportedly did.)

Left-Wing Activist Poses as Reporter At White House Press Briefings

Oooh, scary.

By now you know the softballs Gannon tossed, like, “Because they disagree with you, are the Democrats evil sinners who should rot in hell as their flesh is rendered by giant man-demons perpetrating the foulest rituals of Gomorrah on them?”

The darn lefty has asked pesky, invasive questions on “industrial hemp, Israel’s 1967 attack on the USS Liberty, possible war crimes charges against Bush, and Halliburton.”  You know, questions designed to gather knowledge, rather than serving up a partisan volley of propaganda spew.

Not that the White House would guve a meaningful or  thoughtful response.  See below

Mokhiber:Are you familiar with Israel’s 1967 attack on the USS Liberty?
Scott McClellan: No, not really.

Mokhiber: What happened was – they attacked it, and 34 Americans were killed and more than 100 were wounded. Ever since that attack, the U.S. and Israel say it was a mistake. But Admiral Thomas Moorer, who was the former Joint Chiefs of Staff Chairman, held a press conference last week announcing an investigation finding that it was a deliberate attack. There was an attorney there from the Navy inquiry who said it was a deliberate attack, but Johnson’s White House told them to change the story. Moorer wants a Congressional investigation. For every U.S. ship attacked, there has been a Congressional investigation – except for this one. Would the President support a Congressional investigation –

Scott McClellan: I don’t know enough about this issue to comment on it.

Yup, softballs and awkward silences by dumbfounded administration officials are the same.   Oh, plus, the CONS let him in.  It is no secret that reporters have an agenda.  Collusion between the press, or Talon *news* or Fox *news* and the white house is another matter entirely.  Stupid hateful CONS.

Viva le gadfly.
