Media in Trouble: All the news thats UNfit to print!: Lemmings

Apparently Scott Shields wanted to place the blame of the Sago mining accident on the relaxation of mining safety regulations. Under all the media noise about the misinformation doled out about who died and who didn't you may get a whisper about the 208 violations that the Sago mine's wrist was slapped with. Scott rightfully pointed out the fact that the board responsible for oversight had been stacked with Bush cronies.

So just as soon as you can say political vulnerability for King Bush, the wingers attack!

Scott got Malkinized, and Cornered, and eventually he was "Crazy Batshit Moonbat Liberal Socialist Commie Pinko Brownshirt Liberal Bush Blaming Michael Moore Gay Lover." Really, notice the 18 trackbacks on Malkin's post.

This is how the Right wing does it. They misinterpret, misread, erase real issues, then attack like rabid chipmunks until the victim screams uncle and gets put in the same thought bubble as Michael Moore, and Cindy Sheehan. Like Lemmings going over the cliff, following the leader in search of food.
