In a blog post that should be dripping with ironic exposition but, sadly, is not – former fake reporter Jeff Gannon (not his real name, btw, to add even more incredible layers of irony to this riotous salad) has this to say about the (morally bankrupt) former White House press secretary Scott McClellan and his newfound “come to Jesus” revelations:
By his own admission, McClellan either perpetrated a fraud behind the podium or has done so with this book. Whichever the case, Scott McClellan’s credibility is zero.
However, something as “trivial” as credibility will not stop the rabid liberal media from accepting McClellan’s words as gospel – because it represents the “truth” they desire. The media mavens who once characterized McClellan as a clueless dunce at the bottom of the information totem have miraculously transformed him into a central figure in the decision-making process. So much for their credibility.
While I was attending the daily White House press briefings, most reporters, including me, complained that McClellan rarely strayed from his talking points to provide substantive information.
Jeff Gannon. Writing about credibility.
