Silverstein: It’s All In The Bones

DouchebloggerTMRichard Silverstein has been cited by various media outlets (Israeli and international) a number of times in the past months, for his speculations based on his “anonymous sources.” I have demonstrated time and again why he should not be trusted, but my calls have been largely ignored.

But I may have to eat my words. Apparently, I underestimated Dickie’s meticulousness in sifting out the truth.

People come here all the time with Israeli media stories based on anonymous sources treating them like halacha l’Moshe mi’Sinai. So when people like a story they trust the sources, when they don’t they cry out the source is anonymous & can’t be trusted. People yell that here all the time about my sources. All I can say is that this story is true. I know it in my bones.

So there you have it, folks. You can keep quoting Silverstein because – to paraphrase Shakira – his bones don’t lie.
