More reporting conservatives don’t do

Tonight at George Washington University, David Horowitz made news:

WASHINGTON, D.C. — There is a “100% chance that there will be . . . an attack on U.S. soil,” conservative author David Horowitz said Thursday.
Horowitz made the prediction while speaking to a George Washington University student group, after being asked about the possibility of U.S.-Iranian conflict. In the event of such a terror attack against the American homeland, Horowitz predicted, there will be widespread public outrage against U.S. liberals. . . .

Having spent more than two decades in the news business, I was outraged in January when Michael Goldfarb at the Weekly Standard said conservative bloggers don’t do reporting. I’d love to do more, but the stuck-up know-it-alls at the Weekly Standard never asked, and they don’t ever link me off their blog, so . . . OK, /rage.

But then Matthew Yglesias jumped in with his “nyah nyahs,” prompting Malkin to demonstrate, au contraire, that conservative bloggers do report. And I know doggone well that they could do a lot more reporting, if anyone with any influence in the conservative movement had a freaking clue about the news business. But they don’t, and so I’m out here shaking the tip jar at 11 at night, while some other people on fat salaries are at home in bed.

F— them.

Dan Collins has further thoughts on the subject. I’m too tired and angry to write about it now.
