Journalistic Boobjob of the Year

Meet Roger Simon, Chief Political Columnist of Politico.

...a New York Times best-selling author.

...has won more than three dozen first-place awards...

...also won the National Headliner Award three times...

...inducted into the Chicago Journalism Hall of Fame...

Which translates, in layman's terms, to having the journalistic integrity of damp sawdust.

Here's the story.

Quick Summary: Some agenda-driven hack writes a blatant anti-Fred Thompson hit piece, based on nothing most of us would describe as reality, only to get called out on it when video of the event he allegedly witnessed is posted on the internet.

Gee, that sounds familiar.
