AnonymASS Tipster of the Week


By Betsy Rothstein Comment

We’ve recently had a wave of lefty readers label FishbowlDC as a conservative site. The reason? We covered Politico‘s obviously left-leaning ex-White House Correspondent and domestic violence expert Joe Williams. As with any correspondence we receive, we take it seriously and try to respond whenever possible.

AnonymASS writes in, “Anyone who worships Britebarf, like you, is a conservative website. Gavin used to cover real journalists, not the rightwing neanderthals you tout all the time.” The tipster is, of course, referring to Politico‘s Patrick Gavin, who formerly wrote FishbowlDC.

Dear ASS, Please keep this between us. You’ve discovered that we’re rabid, fire-breathing Republicans. Just Google us! But don’t read anything because your arguments are best supported sans facts. Meanwhile, back in reality, we believe in covering right and left wing media and everything in between. In your view, simply writing about them means “touting” or “worshiping.” To us, it’s coverage. In other words, Monday.
