More WHCD c-word fallout…
“Gerhi is a fan of Kardashian, not me. Fishbowl DC tries so hard to smear me. Desperate.” — The Daily Caller‘s intrepid video reporter Michelle Fields (this is her on Fox News this morning). Actually, Michelle, we understood you were not a fan when you wrote that you were a “Kardashian hater” because if anyone has a right to judge that family, it’s you. We’re also crazy in our comprehension skills. When someone says they hate the Kardashians we tend to take them at their word. As it happens, this time, we weren’t trying to smear you. It was confusing, however, who was being called a c**t since you had been called one before and the Kardashian fan seemed utterly and absurdly offended by your slight on the Kardashians. We said you were “exposed” to the word again — and really we can’t even imagine why you were exposed to it in the first place.
