When Journalists Create The News They Report

Jammie Wearing Fools calls it hysterical, I call it pathetic.

Long story short, you have a so-called journalist, Chris Parry of The Vancouver Sun, who "reports" hate speech on Free Republic against Malia Obama.

According to Gawker, this very reporter is a member of the Daily Kos community who has publicly stated, at Kos, that has advocated "posting hate speech on sites like Free Republic and blaming it on conservatives."

It gets worse, though. Chris Parry, it appears, has advocated on his Daily Kos blog any number of egregious offenses, among them: posting hate speech on sites like Free Republic and blaming it on conservatives. Parry posted under the name "hollywoodoz" on Daily Kos, where his signature was "Fool me once, I'll punch you in the fucking head." Parry outed himself as hollywoodoz here, where he discloses the company he helped start. In essence: Parry, the journalist, found his story right where he'd been circling it for a very long time, and reported it as news. Sigh.

Following the link to Free Republic where they smack Parry around a little, I see they have additional information about him listed:

Additional FACTS (links and back up below) A review of Chris Parry's posts on Daily Kos and other places on the net reveals that far from being an unbiased reported printing the facts, Chris Parry has called for or stated, among other things:

- Violence against those that disagree with him and his left wing beliefs. (1)

- Chris has written in the Daily Kos that people should be "google bombing" Bill O'reilly as a "terrorist sympathizer." Is that what we should expect from unbiased media writters at the Vancouver Sun? (2)

- Bashed Carrie-Prejean in his Sun articles to support his personal biases as exposed in the Daily Kos (3)

- Bashed "tea parties" in his articles which were then held up by the left as proof that tea parties failed. Afterall, this news came from a real "reporter" unbiased in his coverage right? (4)

- Supports Michael Moore as he bashes President Bush with the usual left crap while at the same time calling himself "an objective writer" (yes, he is that wacked out) (5)

- Says it is "understandable" why Saddam tried to kill Bush Senior. Yikes, that is scary. (6)

- Apparently has a preference for "girl on girl action" (moderator, see the link below). Guess this disproves those that thought he went the other way. With a blogging name like "hollywoodoz" one might have thought he was searching over the "rainbow" for other types in Hollywood. (7)

- There is evidence of his being in contact with Markos Moulitsas of the Kos. No conspiracy here, just facts. (8)

- Apparently Chris Parry is a loan shark of sorts taking money and interest from small international companies desperate for cash. He has even funded palestinean construction. Interesting. (9)

As promised, they do list the links to support all those statements as well as a slew of other information, so go on over and read the whole thing.

It is kind of amusing that anyone that participates over at Daily Kos, the perfect example of hatred and hate speech, would in turn complain about hate speech elsewhere.

The word ironic comes to mind. So does hypocrisy.
