LA Weekly Meets Little Green Footballs

Brendan Bernhard, in the LA Weekly, profiles Charles Johnson, Reuters’ worst nightmare. FBLA was one of the few sites who actually mentioned Johnson’s role in the doctored photos ruckus. We point that out to be accurate.

Best part of the piece is this bit of history:

Last February, in an article about Pajamas Media, Los Angeles magazine’s media critic, R.J. Smith, characterized Johnson’s site as “constitutionally protected hate speech.” He described LGF, which averages well over 100,000 unique hits a day, as an online hangout for “haters” who think “all Muslims are terrorists until proven innocent.” The fact that LGF provides an incredibly useful guide to global Islamist encroachment appears not to have entered his head at all.
