Disgusting and

lame partisan hacks masquerading as journalists. If you still suck down the bilge that the MSM gives you, you are a damned fool.

I mean, C’mon! You know better!

In the lead-up to the 2016 presidential election, the high-profile Washington reporter Franklin Foer, according to recently-published documents, did something that would, in all likelihood, get an intern run out of town: He showed a full draft of an unpublished story to one of the co-founders of Fusion GPS, the Democratic-allied research firm notorious for producing a dubious dossier containing the claim that Donald Trump was being blackmailed by the owners of a “pee tape.” More troublingly still, this isn’t the only time Foer has contravened a fundamental journalistic norm—or the only time his editors have apparently let it slide.

… Sending a draft of a story to a source ahead of its publication is—and is widely regarded as—a red-letter journalistic offense, the sort of thing that generates stories when even the hint of it arises.

….At the moment, Foer and the outlet where he works aren’t saying anything about his apparent decisions to share drafts of stories with highly partisan third parties.
