Holy Shit!! Moonie Times reporter loses his little freakin' mind
This is from kos, and it's a riot.

Joe Curl, Washington Times
by kos
Wed Dec 05, 2007 at 08:11:13 AM PST
Remember Joe Curl? He's the guy who didn't just interview Karl Rove, but also adopted his math in an effort to fluff up his beloved President Bush in the Washington Times.

Well, a blogger emailed him challenging his math, and he got these responses (link is NOT safe for work):

So I fired off this email to Mr. Curl at his address at the Washington Times:

"You dishonest hack. How about getting the poll results that you quote right and when you compare them try comparing the apples with the apples."

C. Scott Smith



Pithy, right?

I got this back almost immediately from Mr. Curl:

Get a life, pussy.

And if you ever want a piece of me, name the time and place. I'm sick of pussies
like you writing these sissy fucking messages. You can't even write - what the
fuck are you talking about?

Sent from my Verizon Wireless BlackBerry

jcurl@washingtontimes.com



I didn't even have time to respond before I got this and clearly after he had read the link to the Kos piece that I sent him:

Just read your links. You think I can't back up my story? Fuck you, hack. I do the work - Kos writes shit. Next time, dickhead, ask me nicely for my cites and I'll be glad to tell you. I did the work - Kos is sucking off me. He's a fucking hack. And youkre his bitch. Try thinking for yourself, pussy. And try doing the work.

Sent from my Verizon Wireless BlackBerry



I told Mr. Curl that by the tone of his emails he clearly had masculinity issues and that these were obviously behind his over the top reaction to my email. I gladly told him where I lived and said that I'd love to meet him for a little old style face to face Marine Corps re-education session anytime he was in town. And then I got this back:

Fuck you, pussy.

Sent from my Verizon Wireless BlackBerry



Then, unprompted by any further correspondence from me, Mr. Curl fired off the following:

And it was a news article, numbnuts. Rove said, I wrote. Get a clue. I'm a
reporter, dillhole.

I'll drop you a line next time I'm in Seattle.

Sent from my Verizon Wireless BlackBerry


And it went on and on from there. I verified it with Curl, who reacted in a similar fashion to me. It's all funny, of course, and the guy is full of shit, obviously. And isn't it conservative bloggers that get the vapors when they hear someone say the word "fuck"? And what's with the "pussy" pejorative? Is the dude a neanderthal?

But the most telling part of that exchange is when Curl claims his piece was a straight news piece. Like his colleagues on Fox News (where he often appears), he's lost hold on reality. He thinks Made Up Wingnutlandia is a real place, where statements like "the surge is taking hold" and "Bush is regaining his footing" aren't really just (incorrect) opinion.

Like I said, I emailed him to verify and to ask for his cites, since he claimed above that he could support all the claims in his article. His response:

You're boring me. Stop emailing me.
Maybe you guys will get a different reaction from him, so drop him a line and find out:

5. Mr. Curl is mistaken. He's not a 'reporter', he's a stenographer, merely taking down the words.

17. He even admits it in one of his emails.

"Rove said, I wrote. Get a clue. I'm a reporter"

Uh, no, "Rove said, I wrote" makes you, as sinkingfeeling stated, a stenographer, not a reporter.

9. Wow! Now this is what journalism's all about! No wonder Bush's dad,
the elder Bush has viewed the Washington Times as the important paper in Washington, D.C.

It's like seeing Edward R. Murrow as a young man, isn't it? Seymour Hersh?

Maybe Kos shouldn't bother him: he's such a busy, important guy.

13. Special delivery...
Edited on Wed Dec-05-07 03:58 PM by warren pease
Mr. Curl has earned a place on my special gift list this year. In honor of his aggressive compensation for what's obviously tiny weenie syndrome, he'll be getting a tasteful package wrapped in brown paper and festooned with a gaudy red label with large yellow letters saying, "Thank you for your order of six dozen extra small condoms."

That should give a few dozen postal workers a laugh, along with the entire news room at the Moonie Times. You might consider sending him appropriate gifts as well. After all, such vibrant writing deserves to be acknowledged.


Probably hung like a hamster, as my former girlfriend used to say when she was in a particularly snarky mood.

Edited because you don't spell "moonie" "mooney"

15. Does Rev. Moon allow staff to cuss like sailors at the public via company email?
Just wondering.

I know if I were to send e-stinkbombs like that out to the public, I wouldn't last long on my job!

18. Send him the worst, cheapest rotgut whiskey ... and include a semi-legible receipt.
Edited on Wed Dec-05-07 08:23 PM by eppur_se_muova
Nothing makes an employer sit up and take notice like cheap mail-order hootch delivered to the employee's office.

And don't forget the handy mail-in forms in the back of Hustler magazine and the like. Use his work address.

19. Excellent, but to take it one step further.....
The page from FaceBook above (if it's legit) was for "Hot A$$ College Girl$ and Guy$". It my be my own filthy mind, but using "$" instead of "s" in an instance like this usually means that money is changing hands. And what respectable sex site would put boy$ and girl$ in the same room and confuse the issue and their stupid clients?

The "girl$" provides cover for anyone who gets caught in that site at work and it's easier to explain to the wife that you were harmlessly flirting with silly young chiquitas rather than trolling on the down low for some hot man on college boy sex. Hopefully, neither will get the "$" reference.

Nah, this guy needs some hot links to gay porn sites as well as some toy and video catalogs. If he's trolling for "college guys" he wants the "barely 18" or "twink" categories.

The hooch and Japanese condoms are excellent ideas too. He probably pays for boys so they won't laugh at his tiny pecker rather than because he can't go out to any of the dozens of pick-up spots all over DC and get laid over a couple of drinks or a demonstration of his tap dancing skills.
