Yesterday, self-proclaimed "journalist" Jeff Fecke commented on a Power Line post on the Duke lacrosse team at his Blog of the Moderate Left and managed to make a mockery of naming names.
He begins with:
So the Blogger Formerly Known as St. Paul...
The Power Line post that Fecke is referencing was penned by one Paul Mirengoff. To my knowledge he has never gone by the nickname St. Paul and something tells me that wouldn't be his religious moniker of choice. In the past, he did blog under the pseudonym "Deacon."
A few paragraphs later Fecke stumbles again:
Johnson comes back to the argument...
Johnson? He must mean Scott Johnson, who also posts at Power Line. Fecke goes on to incorrectly identify Johnson as the author four more times in his post.
Now, I'm not a "journalist" like Jeff pretends to be, but I've noticed that if you look carefully at the bottom of every Power Line post you'll see the words "Posted by" followed by the name of the guy who wrote the post. Just a hint to help Jeff's future endeavors in "journalism."
UPDATE: After a comment from our own JB Doubtless, Fecke has corrected his errors. Apparently, it was all just an "accident" you see. With classic buck passing like that, maybe he does have a future in journalism after all. Kate Parry better watch her back.
UPDATE II-- Ted e-mails:
I see you've discovered the rich source of material that is Jeff Fecke. Please note the hillarious response he provided to your colleague, Fred, who commented on the post you mentioned on SCSU Scholars today:
Sorry--in typing things up, I accidentally id'd him as St. Paul instead of Deacon. I've made the correction. I mean, I can understand why you guys wouldn't want to be identified with Powerline.
It never fails to amuse me that this Woman's History major / shipping and receiving clerk thinks he has anywhere near the intellectual heft or gravity of two international law firm partners and a bank senior vice president.
Why would anyone want to be associated with Powerline?
Indeed, why would anyone want to be associated with that lying, disingenuous turd Fecke?
