…completely omitting the little part where Breitbart’s smoking gun proof left him no other options minx.cc/?post=339009

— DepressiveBlogger69 (@AceofSpadesHQ) April 10, 2013

The decision to send snapshots of his crotch to strangers was Anthony Weiner’s own, but if the New York Times Magazine is to be believed, the late Andrew Breitbart had nothing to do with forcing Weiner’s hand when it was time to be straight with his wife and the public. That’s strange; we remember Breitbart being so essential to the story that he ended up at the podium at Weiner’s own press conference.

Ace of Spades remembers as well. So how does a professional news publication like the New York Times Magazine manage to so thoroughly overlook Breitbart’s pivotal role? It’s almost as though the Times is trying to pave the way for Weiner’s political comeback.

As a bonus, they pretend that Breitbart didn’t get that scoop– but that “Reporters’ developed the information.

[email protected]nytimes Did you “vet” today’s claim that Weiner made his confession without any thought of the June 6th Breibart story that blew him up?

— DepressiveBlogger69 (@AceofSpadesHQ) April 10, 2013

[email protected]nytimes Are you pretending you’re not aware that the morning of June 6th featured smoking-gun pictures of Weiner in complete undress?

— DepressiveBlogger69 (@AceofSpadesHQ) April 10, 2013

[email protected]nytimes and are you pretending that that did not spur the confession by Weiner later that very day, at 7pm?

— DepressiveBlogger69 (@AceofSpadesHQ) April 10, 2013

[email protected]nytimes Do I have to republish these pictures to get you to admit that this 6am disclosure spurred the 7pm confession?

— DepressiveBlogger69 (@AceofSpadesHQ) April 10, 2013

[email protected]nytimes are you pretending your whole newsroom wasn’t looking at these pictures 6amJune 6th 2011?

— DepressiveBlogger69 (@AceofSpadesHQ) April 10, 2013

[email protected]nytimes are you pretending you didn’t notice the story was a FULL HUGE HEADLINE/SIREN at Drudge all day?

— DepressiveBlogger69 (@AceofSpadesHQ) April 10, 2013

@daveweigel They just completely misstate when Breitbart came into the story in order to claim Weiner’s june 6 confession was due to a…

— DepressiveBlogger69 (@AceofSpadesHQ) April 10, 2013

@daveweigel …heartfelt confessional with his wife. And not due to the THROBBING NAKED C*** PICTURES that ran 6am that morning.

— DepressiveBlogger69 (@AceofSpadesHQ) April 10, 2013

@daveweigel they just completely pretend THAT DIDN’T HAPPEN–all they mention are reporters “hearing” of other women without nailing it down

— DepressiveBlogger69 (@AceofSpadesHQ) April 10, 2013

@jenny_idlyitw @nytimes @andrewbreitbart it’s not just credit, that was only the first half of the headline.

— DepressiveBlogger69 (@AceofSpadesHQ) April 10, 2013

Only the first half of that is about the Times denying Breitbart credit.The more important element is WHY they did so…

— DepressiveBlogger69 (@AceofSpadesHQ) April 10, 2013

…and they did so to pretend that Weiner’s hand wasn’t forced that the internet EXPLODED in the early am of June 6 with HOT DICK PICS

— DepressiveBlogger69 (@AceofSpadesHQ) April 10, 2013

Instead they portray the confession as arising from heartfelt, touching conversation between weiner and Huma FIVE DAYS BEFORE on June 1.

— DepressiveBlogger69 (@AceofSpadesHQ) April 10, 2013

They get kind of vague about why Weiner waited five days to make this confession that he and his wife had agreed to…

— DepressiveBlogger69 (@AceofSpadesHQ) April 10, 2013

…these two lovely kids standing before the world and hectoring “reporters,” who just wanted to live in Truth rather than in lies…

— DepressiveBlogger69 (@AceofSpadesHQ) April 10, 2013

…rather than what everyone else on Planet Earth observed, that the pictures published on the morning of June 6th compelled a confession

— DepressiveBlogger69 (@AceofSpadesHQ) April 10, 2013

…rather than this campily maudlin heart-to-heart between the Lovers on the Run on June 1.

— DepressiveBlogger69 (@AceofSpadesHQ) April 10, 2013

Pro-tip: The pictures from the morning of June 6th probably had more to do with the evening of June 6 press conference…

— DepressiveBlogger69 (@AceofSpadesHQ) April 10, 2013

@aceofspadeshq just let Andrew tell us… youtube.com/watch?v=eIJRyJ…

[email protected]nytimes did you not notice andrew Breitbart taking over Weiner’s press conference on June 6?

— DepressiveBlogger69 (@AceofSpadesHQ) April 10, 2013

[email protected]nytimes do you remember WHY he was in NYC at all on June 6th? Here’s a clue: to go on the media to talk about the scoop of morning.

— DepressiveBlogger69 (@AceofSpadesHQ) April 10, 2013

@aceofspadeshq hastily-planned news conference on the 6th, as well. Sort of blows up the idea he had decided to do it days before.

— John Ekdahl, Jr. (@JohnEkdahl) April 10, 2013

I meant to note that– if this decision was made june 1, why was the june 6 presser “hastily-planned”[email protected]johnekdahl

— DepressiveBlogger69 (@AceofSpadesHQ) April 10, 2013

@aceofspadeshq I remember that day well. The presser came out of nowhere.

— John Ekdahl, Jr. (@JohnEkdahl) April 10, 2013

[email protected]nytimes How many editors had to “massage” that article to confuse the timeline and misstate critical events to get Weiner his Hero Moment?

— DepressiveBlogger69 (@AceofSpadesHQ) April 10, 2013

[email protected]nytimes Did you debate the precise way in which you’d move events around to create a deliberately false impression?

— DepressiveBlogger69 (@AceofSpadesHQ) April 10, 2013

[email protected]nytimes Since I’m sure you’re proud of your output, can you share the names of the Editors who helped “Polish” this article?

— DepressiveBlogger69 (@AceofSpadesHQ) April 10, 2013

@thepantau @buzzfeedandrew we all get a profile change later, when our profile changes to “deceased” and “in a relationship with vermin”

— DepressiveBlogger69 (@AceofSpadesHQ) April 10, 2013

— Sharp Shooter (@Sean_for_3) April 10, 2013

seems like you, the @nytimes, seemed to understand that it was the morning pictures that forced the confession two years ago…

— DepressiveBlogger69 (@AceofSpadesHQ) April 10, 2013

…but now that Weiner is rehabilitating his image as a marriage-centered hombre, you seem to have completely forgotten @nytimes

— DepressiveBlogger69 (@AceofSpadesHQ) April 10, 2013

@aceofspadeshq @nytimes “to a woman online” nytimes.com/2011/06/07/us/…

@danriehl @dloesch wasn’t the first, but she was the Big One.

@sean_for_3 @nytimes thanks, good binging !

— DepressiveBlogger69 (@AceofSpadesHQ) April 10, 2013

@aceofspadeshq @nytimes Once again, the operative truth of the day trumps subjective truth. It’s agenda uber alles.

— Can of Spam (@iDoLikeSpam) April 10, 2013

[email protected]nytimes Why did you claim that there were no Important Events Driving the Story between June 1 and the June 6 confession?

— DepressiveBlogger69 (@AceofSpadesHQ) April 10, 2013

[email protected]nytimesIs this true? Or is it New Truth?

@dloesch @danriehl I’m distinguishing between the Tweet itself — which was all over twitter, due to RT’s, and Breitbart’s actual…

— DepressiveBlogger69 (@AceofSpadesHQ) April 10, 2013

@dloesch @danriehl No-One-Else-Has-This Story, the story of the 2nd woman, which blew up all of Weiner’s previous lies

— DepressiveBlogger69 (@AceofSpadesHQ) April 10, 2013

@dloesch @danriehl you have to read their article to get what they’re doing and why they’re doing it.

— DepressiveBlogger69 (@AceofSpadesHQ) April 10, 2013

@dloesch @danriehl according to their New Truth, Breitbart entered, and then exited, the story on May 27

— DepressiveBlogger69 (@AceofSpadesHQ) April 10, 2013

@dloesch @danriehl the June 6 Bombshell didn’t happen at all.

— DepressiveBlogger69 (@AceofSpadesHQ) April 10, 2013

@dloesch @danriehl which permits them the fiction that Huma and Weiner decided on this out of conscience, rather than being forced to.

— DepressiveBlogger69 (@AceofSpadesHQ) April 10, 2013

@dloesch @danriehl and all of the pressure on Weiner came from “Reporters” who were dogging him (and who raised questions about other women)

— DepressiveBlogger69 (@AceofSpadesHQ) April 10, 2013

@dloesch @danriehl (but without actually finding other women)

— DepressiveBlogger69 (@AceofSpadesHQ) April 10, 2013

you guys really have to read the @nytimes piece to see how they deliberately move events around in the timeline and omit others.

— DepressiveBlogger69 (@AceofSpadesHQ) April 10, 2013

all to deliver a PR-Professional-approved story of a man and wife deciding to come clean, without any outside spurring @nytimes

— DepressiveBlogger69 (@AceofSpadesHQ) April 10, 2013

BTW, the timeline is not at all confusing– which is why I know they did it deliberately @nytimes

— DepressiveBlogger69 (@AceofSpadesHQ) April 10, 2013

The timeline is simple and straightforward. But the timeline undercut the Weiner Redemption Narrative, so the timeline had to be adjusted

— DepressiveBlogger69 (@AceofSpadesHQ) April 10, 2013

that deliberately falsified timeline @nytimes piece quoted here: ace.mu.nu/archives/33900…

— DepressiveBlogger69 (@AceofSpadesHQ) April 10, 2013

[email protected]daveweigel are you going to write about this?

— DepressiveBlogger69 (@AceofSpadesHQ) April 10, 2013

I hope the @nytimes doesn’t get a pass just because Liberal Lies have a certain je ne sais quoi to them

— DepressiveBlogger69 (@AceofSpadesHQ) April 10, 2013

@aceofspadeshq Another example of the Designated Hero. They can’t say what actually happened.

— Gabriel Malor (@gabrielmalor) April 10, 2013

@sutjihadi @nytimes you’re very close to a block. I can take disagreement but not stupidity.

— DepressiveBlogger69 (@AceofSpadesHQ) April 10, 2013

Here’s the actual timeline: May 27th- the tweet

— DepressiveBlogger69 (@AceofSpadesHQ) April 10, 2013

May 27th to 30th: the media does not report on the story (indeed, most right-leaning publications refused to run it too)

— DepressiveBlogger69 (@AceofSpadesHQ) April 10, 2013

May 27th to 30th: the media does not report on the story (indeed, most right-leaning publications refused to run it too)

— DepressiveBlogger69 (@AceofSpadesHQ) April 10, 2013

May 31st– Dana Bash confronts Weiner (first time for the MSM) and he comes off as…. obviously lying

— DepressiveBlogger69 (@AceofSpadesHQ) April 10, 2013

May 27th-June 5th — Weiner continues lying about the pictures. At some point he begins offering the Modified Limited Hang Out (if you will)

— DepressiveBlogger69 (@AceofSpadesHQ) April 10, 2013

to wit, that the picture “might” be of him, but he never sent it. It was a #Hack. Something the intellectual @maddow pushes all week.

— DepressiveBlogger69 (@AceofSpadesHQ) April 10, 2013

On June 6th, at 6am, Breitbart breaks the story of a 2nd woman who received the same picture as seen in the May 27 tweet…

— DepressiveBlogger69 (@AceofSpadesHQ) April 10, 2013

…and some others… a lot of others… in various states of undress… thus completely rubbishing 10 days of uninterrupted lies.

— DepressiveBlogger69 (@AceofSpadesHQ) April 10, 2013

and 10 days of uninterrupted credulity of the MSM, which kept claiming Weiner’s story was perfectly plausible.

— DepressiveBlogger69 (@AceofSpadesHQ) April 10, 2013

Only after the June 6th am photos does Weiner arrange a press conference at 7pm to confess THAT WHICH IS NOW ALREADY PROVEN.

— DepressiveBlogger69 (@AceofSpadesHQ) April 10, 2013

Here’s the @nytimes version of events: May 27, the tweet. Andrew Breitbart is mentioned here as being responsible for publicizing it.

— DepressiveBlogger69 (@AceofSpadesHQ) April 10, 2013

Weiner is “besieged.”Possibly by @howardkurtz, who immediately deemed it be “obviously a hack”

— DepressiveBlogger69 (@AceofSpadesHQ) April 10, 2013

some “reporters” ask about possible other women, but the @nytimes doesn’t mention any resolution on this.

— DepressiveBlogger69 (@AceofSpadesHQ) April 10, 2013

June 1st: After confessing to Huma, Weiner heroically decides the time to put lies behind him is upon him. Yet.. he doesn’t confess.

— DepressiveBlogger69 (@AceofSpadesHQ) April 10, 2013

June 6:Weiner has a “hastily-arranged press conference” and confesses. The @nytimes does not say why it happened on June 6…

— DepressiveBlogger69 (@AceofSpadesHQ) April 10, 2013

or what RECENT DEVELOPMENTS might have spurred this move. According to the @nytimes, Weiner was just following thru on the June TruthTalk.

— DepressiveBlogger69 (@AceofSpadesHQ) April 10, 2013

Nor does the @nytimes explain what might cause a press conference to be “hastily arranged” given it had been decided on 5 days before.

— DepressiveBlogger69 (@AceofSpadesHQ) April 10, 2013

So according to the @nytimes, the brave decision of June 1 leads to the confession of June 6– no outside events influencing this!

— DepressiveBlogger69 (@AceofSpadesHQ) April 10, 2013

The @nytimes would have us believe 1, that the June 6 bombshell didn’t happen, 2, if it did happen, Weiner was unaware of it, …

— DepressiveBlogger69 (@AceofSpadesHQ) April 10, 2013

3, even if Weiner was aware of it, the @nytimes forgot about it, and 4, the @nytimes made all these errors in the timeline accidentally

— DepressiveBlogger69 (@AceofSpadesHQ) April 10, 2013

and every fucking Liberal Reporter will cover for the @nytimes because they all have hard-ons about working there some day.

— DepressiveBlogger69 (@AceofSpadesHQ) April 10, 2013

Which I bet you is a belief the @nytimes encourages in many reporters, by suggesting they like their work…

— DepressiveBlogger69 (@AceofSpadesHQ) April 10, 2013

…and thus buys for itself, on the cheap, a lifetime of accountability-free false reporting.

— DepressiveBlogger69 (@AceofSpadesHQ) April 10, 2013

This is like reporting that America Declares War on Japan while deliberately omitting the late unpleasantness of December 7.

— DepressiveBlogger69 (@AceofSpadesHQ) April 10, 2013

I’d credit his confession, @nytimes, as being as heroic as you portray it, if the entire world didn’t have pictures of his Hog by that time

— DepressiveBlogger69 (@AceofSpadesHQ) April 10, 2013

A correction really isn’t that difficult to post, New York Times Magazine. Look, Ace will even write it for you.

[email protected]nytimes correction: “We inadvertently failed to mention that when Anthony Weiner made his heroic revelations at 7pm on June 6…”

— DepressiveBlogger69 (@AceofSpadesHQ) April 10, 2013

“… HD pictures of his junk had been posted on every online page in the entire world by 8:30 am that morning. @nytimes regrets the error.”

— DepressiveBlogger69 (@AceofSpadesHQ) April 10, 2013

[email protected]nytimes What do you think was more likely the proximate cause of the confession of June 6:

— DepressiveBlogger69 (@AceofSpadesHQ) April 10, 2013

[email protected]nytimes a claimed conversation which allegedly occurred on June 1 but which was not followed up on, or…

— DepressiveBlogger69 (@AceofSpadesHQ) April 10, 2013

[email protected]nytimes …the Congressman’s choad-beast having more publicity that morning than Madonna in 1985?

— DepressiveBlogger69 (@AceofSpadesHQ) April 10, 2013

according to the carefully-massaged timeline of the @nytimes, it was the former. The latter never actually happened.

— DepressiveBlogger69 (@AceofSpadesHQ) April 10, 2013

Pro-Tip, @nytimes: When even Opie and Anthony are examining Congressional genitalia, the decision to confess might be somewhat forced.

— DepressiveBlogger69 (@AceofSpadesHQ) April 10, 2013
