This is how the right wing starts a whispering campaign:
http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-bloggers/2198365/po...

The problem? There is no San Diego Sun Times (I've tried teh google)http://www.newtosandiego.com/Newspapers-and-Magazines /

Nor is there an "Alfred Friedman" who writes for the pretend newspaper.

2. My suggestion: Start checking Racist Neo-Nazi and KKK Sites
because that's where the bullshit lie started.

4. Free Republic is about as far as I'm willing to wade
into the stench.I'm sure a good majority of them visit those sites frequently.

5. And the Freepers eat it up
The first six pages of a Google search for Alfred Friedman show a New York property management firm, a Rabbi, the past president of the American Psychiatric Association (Alfred M.), another psychotherapist (Alfred S.) and various and sundry dead ancestors, but no journalist other than the link back to FR at the bottom of the fourth page.

6. It was posted on Wikio.
I posted a comment on it saying I couldn't find the newspaper or the writer. Now I can't find the story on Wikio again. This is very peculiar.

9. Interestingly, the freepers banned the guy that posted it.
Which probably seriously pissed off whichever group went to the trouble of creating the whisper.

Kind of hard to believe they would ban someone for making shit up and posting it. That's pretty much all they do over there.
