Earlier today I got a story from Pam Geller of Atlas Shrugs, who got it from Denis Keohane at American Thinker who was writing about something he saw on, you guessed it, Pajamas Media. Long time readers will notice that I have very rarely linked to the brainchild of noted liar Charles Johnson and Roger Simon and this incident reinforces my views. Pajamas Media remained on the sidelines while Charles Johnson single handedly smothered the online counter-jihad movement in its crib starting with his attacks on Gates of Vienna and most recently with his racism set up of Hot Air.
But even then I assumed the information provided by PJ blogger Michael Ledeen was accurate and had been verified which was simply laziness on my part. Partly this was due to my respect for Ledeen’s work with the Foundation for the Defense of Democracies, but that doesn’t excuse the mistake. I apologize to readers for posting erroneous information and my lapse in judgment for not being skeptical of PJ when it counted. I should have known better.
