89. Ah, the Grand Inquisitor is back! Answer his questions, or you're a liar.
Answer his questions, or you're hiding something.

Answer his perfectly innocent, oh so curious questions, or you stink as a journalist.

Answer his questions, and, like Tice says about the NSA, he can guess at, surveill, drop a dime on, figure out your sources, to what end, he will not say, along with who he (or she) is.

Answer! Answer! Answer! Or you are guilty...of something.

Answer me NOW! Neeyah!

Like Joe McCarthy, and every abusive interrogator, this poster is obsessed. He (she?) thinks he has a right to sources and details that journalists have gone to jail to protect, because it is a journalist's duty to make that judgement. Not some wag with a stage name.

And who is this poster? Nobody knows. All we know are the contradiction, falsehoods, smears and obsessiveness that are displayed here. We have only that to go on, because he writes about nothing else, and it is always that same theme: Answer me, Larisa! Answer me! Answer my questions NOW! Like an abusive parent. He says he is a "nobody," that his identity is not important. That makes me think that the opposite is true. His identity is quite important, because nobody without a grudge or an agenda would write like this. Nobody except someone who had very special reasons for trying to undermine this particular investigation and the lawsuit that is associated with it. Who would have such an obsessive agenda?
