Yes, once again, it’s time to present this week’s statuette of shame, The Golden Weasel!!
Every Tuesday, the Council nominates some of the slimiest, most despicable characters in public life for some deed of evil, cowardice or corruption they’ve performed. Then we vote to single out one particular Weasel for special mention, to whom we award the statuette of shame, our special, 100% plastic Golden Weasel. This week’s nominees were particularly slimy and despicable, but the votes are in and we have our winner… the envelope please…
Bookworm Room: I nominate Breitbart News, which is so committed to the Trump candidacy that the organization turned on one of its own employees, even when video footage supported her version of events: It does indeed seem that a high level Trump aide assaulted Michelle Fields. If you’re going to identify yourself as a news agency — and hold yourself out as a true news alternative to mainstream media outlets that have abandoned journalism in favor of partisan advocacy — you destroy your credibility in the most weasel-ish of ways when you do exactly the same thing.
Well, there it is.
Check back next Tuesday to see who next week’s nominees for Weasel of the Week are!
Make sure to tune in every Monday for the Watcher’s Forum and remember, every Wednesday, the Council has its weekly contest with the members nominating two posts each, one written by themselves and one written by someone from outside the group for consideration by the whole Council. The votes are cast by the Council and the results are posted on Friday morning.
It’s a weekly magazine of some of the best stuff written in the blogosphere and you won’t want to miss it… or any of the other fantabulous Watcher’s Council content.
