    And backpacker stabbed to death for his non-conservative non-Christian views.

    You must have missed that one, eh?

    JLawson:

    Well, you know how much press coverage Australia gets here in the US.

    "Oh, look! It's snowing in the midwest and northeast! Quick, lets concentrate ALL our coverage on that, since we don't have a missing blonde this week!"

    Add in Presidential Horserace Betting, and you can pretty well figure out what's going to be on the 'news' for the next three months.

    I'm just one person. I can't cover it all. As I've said before, I try to find the stuff that isn't being talked about much because I don't like to see the same stories on blog after blog after blog after blog after blog after blog (see what I mean?)

    Melissa, just ignore Brian.... (Below threshold)

    Melissa, just ignore Brian. He's implying that you're like him and that you passed up his story purely for political reasons (even if you simply didn't see it.) Oddly enough, he doesn't seem to have a blog where he can show us how "fair" he'd be in his own links. Any response to this kind of childishness just makes him think he's relevent.

    Umm, nope:

    Francisco Nava '09 has admitted to fabricating an alleged assault on himself that he said occurred Friday evening and to sending threatening emails to himself, other members of the Anscombe Society and prominent conservative politics professor Robert George, today while being interviewed by Princeton Township Police.

    "He fabricated the story," Det. Sgt. Ernie Silagyi said.

    Nava was released to Public Safety and charges "have not been filed pending further investigation," according to a statement from Township Police.

    Wanting so badly to be persecuted and oppressed, but without willing oppressors, what can a stalwart conservative warrior do?

    That reminds me, <a href="h... (Below threshold)
    mantis:

    That reminds me, another fake victim:

    Ann Arbor police said Justin Zatkoff, the executive director of the Michigan Federation of College Republicans, was not attacked by "liberal thugs," as posted on the conservative blog truthcaucus.com.

    ...

    Another one of Zatkoff's friends eventually admitted to police that it was he - not a gang of angry liberals - who punched Zatkoff.

    What is it with these conservative college students? They can't find anyone to beat them up but their friends and themselves?

    No, she obviously included the Nava story purely for political reasons. What I'm implying is that it's stupefyingly dumb to go all the way to some piker rag called "The New Media Journal" to dig up a story about some poor persecuted conservative. Who, it turns out, fabricated the whole thing. Oops.

    Any response to this kind of childishness just makes him think he's relevent.

    Then thank you for making me think I'm relevent.

    Guilty as charged. I'm cons... (Below threshold)

    Guilty as charged. I'm conservative. If you want liberal/democrat view points wizbangblue might be your kind of reading. I'm not going to change my way of doing things to suit you.

    If you want your news and views to be read/heard I suggest you get your own blog and you can put whatever you like on it.

    Oh look! I have my own blog, two actually. Follow the link!

    And that is my final word on the subject. I do know how to ignore.

    Btw, your source, The New M... (Below threshold)
    mantis:

    Btw, your source, The New Media Journal, just went ahead and pulled their embarrassing Princeton student story (good job, Warner Todd!). No explanation, no correction, just a vanished page. Maybe you should put them on the "unreliable" list...
