50 Shades of Bad

While the theme of August remains Bad Journalists, I do have to salute Paul Campos' absolutely definitive work on out of control Law School excessess. With careful detail, he lays out the excesses in capacity, cost & cons, and the massive deficit in honesty that should (but haven't we heard that before?) crater the entire overpriced scam forthwith.

Be that as it may, my problem with a series on bad reporting is that there are so many bad reporters and so little time! Do I go for the obvious fakes (Sippy Cupp), the idiots, the nuts, or the Ohlemachers, who think they are doing fine work even as they are spun mercilessly?

Give me some names. Please!

I'm begging here.

You go with the person who annoys you the most. Then you will always have something to write about.

For now, it's Ohlemacher. He publishes in about 1000 papers & nobody else seems to be pushing back.

I wonder why.
