The Douche Lets Loose

DouchebloggerTM Richard Silverstein has gone after the NY Times’ Robert Mackey. The latter’s crime? Not giving Silverstein credit for a YouTube video Silverstein had posted before him.

It all went down on Twitter after Silverstein saw that Mackey posted the Israeli Iran-themed HOT ad, something Silverstein himself had posted here:

Notice the sheer arrogance of Silverstein. He expects that a NY Times reporter should 1) know of Silverstein 2) read his blog and 3) have noticed Silverstein’s post. The thought that this was not the case sends him in to a tailspin.

Ironically, the NY Times were the ones who published the infamous article on the lack of civility in the blogosphere, citing Silverstein as a victim!

But using his line of reasoning, Silverstein himself should have cited me when he originally posted the video, since I posted it the day before. And since I know for a fact Silverstein reads my blog on a regular basis, there is actually a strong chance he did pilfer it from Israellycool!

Meanwhile, Silverstein really should consider that chip on his shoulder. Because chances are, the Mossad implanted it there.
