Jeff Gannon responds to DU
Edited on Mon Feb-07-05 01:15 PM by EarlG
I'm sure most people here are by now familiar with Jeff Gannon, the "reporter" who lobs biased, softball questions during White House press conferences.

Media Matters has previously reported that Gannon works for "Talon News," an organization which is connected to GOPUSA and Free Republic.

Gannon was #2 on the Top 10 Conservative Idiots list last week for referring to Hillary Clinton and Harry Reid as "people who seem to have divorced themselves from reality" while asking George W. Bush a question at a recent press conference.

We got an email from him over the weekend. It said:

Subject: conservative idiot
Date: Fri, 4 Feb 2005 23:46:34 -0500
From: Jeff Gannon
To: mail@democraticunderground.com

DU:

I promise to try harder to be #1.

Jeff Gannon

Liberal media my ass.

76. Yeah! And he's admitted publicly
to try even harder at it! So, to recap Gannon's aspirations are to move up the corporate... oohs, I mean journalist ladder becoming a better:

1) MORON BAR NONE :puke:
2) NIT-WIT FOR OTHER HALF
3) A-HOLE FOR REPUKS
4) IDIOT FOR GANG ON HILL
5) PUPPET 4 FEARLESS LEADER
6) STUPID PLAINLY PUT
7) CAREER SUICIDE

And to think, he went from ? to being a prez reporter. Wow. think of the future he has when the freeper-ride is over. I mean, I'm seriously impressed. Talk about a national career move... what an idiot, is right!

Think he can email DU some more 1 liners? Can hardly wait.

60. Jeff looks like a child molester - the conservative BS is just a cover up!
This guy obviously has some real defect in his own character.

The whole payola scandal just one marker something is wrong with this guy. My bet is the real conservative power brokers will distance themselves from him.

He is too easily bought off.

21. There's something odd about his "Degree"
Edited on Mon Feb-07-05 01:33 PM by AlabamaYankee
People graduate from "Penn State", or "The Pennsylvania State University", NOT from the PSU System. I have three diplomas from Dear Ol' State, and not a single one says system.

Granted, it's a system, and several of its campuses offer four year degrees, but I'm willing to bet their diplomas don't have "System" on them either.

35. The Pennsylvania State University System consists of 14 universities,
all public, located throughout PA. These universities are NOT affiliated with either Penn State or The U. of Pennsylvania. I myself am a graduate of Indiana University of PA (IUP for short), part of the Pennsylvania State University System, and located in Indiana, PA. My diploma is from Indiana University of Pennsylvania, NOT the "PSU System", as you correctly point out.

43. It probably means he went to a branch campus. His diploma ...
... may say something like "CAMPUS XXX of psu" instead of "PENN STATE." And he may be unexcited about the prospect of explaining to people why he spent four glorious years in Hicksylvania rather than moving onto the big campus with other good students.

I watched c-span with amazement the day of the press conference when he asked such an outrageous question about how the dems were not living in reality that I had to laugh at its ham-handedness.

Glad top see he (or someone close to him) reads DU.
I'm also glad to see he'll try harder to be a biased, unreliable hack with NO credibility. We need more of the MSM and voting public to become sick and tired of this pretend, bizarro "journalism".

Keep it up Jeff! You should interview Armstrong Williams next!

11. I am certain that Jeff has MOUNTAINS of stupidity yet exploited.
But as dumb as his questions are, what is really a superb demonstration of stupid is his unashamed asskissing of a monster. What do you call someone who kisses the ass of the beast while displaying utter ignorance of all things relevant?

You call them Jeff Gannon.

Jeffie, you'll always be #1 in my book. Oh, and btw, the Army is in need of people to fight your war. Go sign up.

Edited on Mon Feb-07-05 02:23 PM by youspeakmylanguage
Jeff Gannon isn't his real name. He has repeatedly refused to divulge his real name:

"It's definitely my reporter's name, and beyond that, I don't see how relevant anything else is."

http://www.mediabistro.com/fishbowlDC/online_media/gann...

Let's lay our cards on the table and call his bluff - this man is nothing more than your average Freeper who happens to work for a company or companies that publish ugly websites and re-word WH press releases. The very fact that he is reading DU message boards demonstrates nothing more than his own narcissism and how much time he really has on his hands. Replying to his emails and posting them publicly just feeds into that narcissism.

Keep your priorities in line - Gannon is certainly not worthy of this much attention, so don't focus on him. The fact that the White House has given him press credentials IS worthy of attention.

I resisted the urge five times to post to this thread because one should always ignore a troll and the comments by Jeff "that's not my real name" Gannon are just that.

Alas, making fun of some one so stupid who makes himself an easy target is sooooooooooo tempting.

And I finally gave in.

I mean, you can't fake your way to the top - just look at George Bush.

OK. Bad example. Never mind.

Mr Gannon, if you're reading this (or having it read to you, like our wonderfully incurious president) then I have a message for you:

Dear Jeff,

You can't just pretend to be the biggest idiot! It has to come from your heart.

But worry not, oh ye of second places. You've shown that you have "the wrong stuff." It's only a matter of time. There's a top idiot spot in your future, we're sure of it.

You simply have to let go...embrace your inner idiot. Envision the idiot within.

And now, Jeff--Be the idiot!



Yes! You learn quickly, oh simple one.

I just want to say Hiya Jeffie! I could use a loan or better yet, a gift of cash since your boys tax cuts will never ever reach to a guy like me. I know you must have a little extra dinero in the ol' bank account, since you are undoubtedly getting paid off by the bushies. I sure could use some of it, since I have a kid in college and my truck could use a few repairs. C'mon Jeff, have a little compassion for a "divorced from reality" working stiff like me. You can do it. It won't even hurt. What's that? You don't give a damn about those of us who made this a great country? Well, we don't give a damn about you either. Try and find a real job Jeffie.

Give it out every now and then. You know...when you actually feel like doing some work. Just give it to whatever sloppy journalist makes waves during the week. On quiet weeks, just give it to Jeff. He could put it on his shitty resume. :)

wife: "If all the losers in this world were put on one list, you'd be number two!"

To be fair though, what would you say if you were number two on their list?

67. That's a good question. It would be such an honor,
and I can't think of a reason why I would be so dutifully appreciated. If this were a freeper award, I'd have to go with the Franken method:


Dearest FreeRepublic.com ,

Thank you for your the recognition that you have bestowed upon me with this trophy/plaque/mention in your recent awarding period. As you probably know, I receive numerous awards from mediocre and "below par" organizations, so I'm sure you will happily accept my apology for not replying personally. (If this is a cash award, please contact my secretary at your leisure for payment instructions.) Again, thank you, and may the pagan lords of the underworld brighten your lives as they have for me!

Sincerely,

47. Dear Jeff:
Here's a good question for you to ask President Bush next time.

Mr. President, "How long before we see the end of the two party system and all dissent in America? I, mean, really we only need one party, one faith and one view, and luckily for us, you represent the one that we all will share in the future."

Every hear of the old USSR Jeff? It's something to look forward to. Hope this makes your day. I know you are doing your part. It must be rewarding.

Signed,

A Democrat that isn't of one view, and is therefore, the enemy.

48. How clever of him
he can type (maybe). Sorry, Jeff, but with so many idiots to choose from, and the bar being as low as it can go already, I just don't know if you'll be able to reach your goal. You'd have to be powerful, instead of just being an ass-kissing liar.

Would it be wrong to send him Goatse and sign him up for every gay porn site that I can find?

Edited on Mon Feb-07-05 03:24 PM by frictionlessO
Second you can bet that he and his fucked up gang of perverted cultist freeps are loving this attention.

Third there is a very real probability that he is a serious neoCON media operative. This "man" has thousands of people going over every public detail of his life (and I'm sure a number of not so public details) right now looking for any tidbit that will further impugn his complete lack of integrity.

Yep, suffice it to say, he is as evil as the reptile rove. Too bad his family only ever taught him to masturbate out of anger.

61. Over 15 Diaries at Kos
tracking down all of the Gannon/Talon News/Plane ties.

At the dKosopedia:
http://www.dkosopedia.com/index.php/Jeff_Gannon

If you have not checked out these diaries you should. Today's update is at:
http://www.dailykos.com/story/2005/2/7/2415/06533

Be sure and check out the links at the bottom of the diary (not comments) for:

Previous Main Plame & Propagannon Diaries
Subsidiary Plame & Propagannon Diaries

Something is happening here. As with the voter fraud investigations at DU - the ability to use "distributed computer users" for distributive research may be our only hope for saving this country. Maybe saving the world.

What you did was unacceptable, you completely skewed a question and used it to attack a political group. That's just wrong. You don't even need to have gone to a decent J-School to know that, you just need common sense.
I'd call you many things and insult your integrity further, but there's no point. If you gave a shit about the true role of the job you wouldn't have done what you did in the first place.

Now most people here probably don't realize it, but he lobbed us a softball and people are having fun with it. Most of the posters to this thread, myself included, are giving in to the all to easy, all too tempting and all to fun, game of make fun of the "conservative idiot". It's a human (and flawed, I'll admit it) trait.

http://www.forbes.com/commerce/2004/07/20/cx_da_0720pre...

FOUR of the five top best economies have been under DEMOCRATS! And their hero Reagan is the only one in the top five, and he made it at number FOUR.

If you want fiscal responsibility, you elect a Democrat.

The fact that this administration relies on the likes of a scumsucker like yourself really says it all, doesn't it JEFF?

96. Oh, looky! The Stepford "reporter" is trying to be arrogant.
I guess the people who invented this fictional character decided they'd better start giving him some real-looking personality traits, b/c everyone is suddenly paying attention to "the man behind the curtain".

It just figures that freerepublic would be involved. That site is a complete sellout. Incidentally, (on yet another website) earlier today I happened upon some old quotes from that site's founder. Did you know he used to supposedly be a democrat? Furthermore, years ago, he was vehemently anti-George W. Bush. One quote from him (paraphrased) was, "Don't give me another cokehead for president! (referring to Bush as a cokehead, following Clinton, whom he also considered a cokehead)."If we get another cokehead for president, I'll be ready for war". This was followed by the usual pathetic description of alleged personal arms.

Complete sellout. And "Gannon" is just a "reporter action figure" that these dishonest, traitorous destroyers of America have put out there--kind of like the action figure that was shown being "held hostage", in that CIA/US Military black-op story about how "the insurgents claimed to have kidnapped a US soldier".

when he sent this: Date: Fri, 4 Feb 2005 23:46:34 (11:45 p.m.) -0500 (EST).

Rule #1 of email: Never, ever send an email trying to be a smart ass when you're drunk on your ass on Friday night especially if you're a high profile figure (e.g. White House Correspondent).

Gannon just showed his ass and comes across as low class trailer trash.

See this thread: http://www.democraticunderground.com/discuss/duboard.ph...

In a nutshell:

"Jeff Gannon", the White House press propagandist "correspondent" for the fake "Talon" news service, turns out to be using a nom de plume.

A group of dKos diarists have been peeling away the layers of Gannon's fake persona, summarized by World O'Crap. In one of those diaries, this revelation is made by Radically Bitter: Among the domains owned by Gannon/Guckert are these:

Jeff Gannon

A Voice of the New Media

The voice goes silent.

Because of the attention being paid to me I find it is no longer possible to effectively be a reporter for Talon News. In consideration of the welfare of me and my family I have decided to return to private life.

Thank you to all those who supported me.
