Back in March, Breitbart Unmasked published several post that made multiple false statements about me, including that I had engaged in stalking and suborned perjury. An honest publication would retract such false statement and publish a correction.
OTOH, this involves Breitbart Unmasked, so I have no expectation of honest, fair dealing from that website or any of the people associated with it. Still, it would be wise for a retraction, correction, and apology for the false information published about me last March to appear on that site—especially now that three judges have ruled that I didn’t engage in stalking, and two have ruled that I didn’t engage in harassment. It should happen soon. Very soon.
Mother Jones has a hard-hitting investigative piece up that reveals that when Ted Cruz practiced law he had clients, that he represented their interests, and that he didn’t win every single case. The article assures us that this will be a hot campaign issue.
Rolling Stone blew it. We’ve known that for a while, and the Columbia School of Journalism report points out some of the failures at the Journalism 101 level. However, it doesn’t explain why such stupid mistakes were made. John Hinderaker at Powerline takes a look at why the magazine would make such errors.
So don’t be surprised next time Rolling Stone, or any other liberal publication, gets a story wrong. These journalists’ biases are set in stone. We and many others have revealed them countless times, and liberal bias has led to countless errors and embarrassments. But such setbacks don’t faze the social justice warriors who went into journalism to further the left-wing narrative.

After listening to sources such as the BBC and NPR talk about how tight the polls were in the Israeli elections, it was a pleasant surprise to wake up this morning and find stories like this and this.
57F Osborne’s 13 March article about me over at Breitbart Unmasked (No, I won’t link to it.) says that The Dread Pro-Se Kimberlin “is expected to file an appeal for a de novo hearing (new trial) on Monday and possibly criminal charges as well.” The de novo trial would be for the peace order he failed to get against me last week.
Just after 11 pm last night, I received an email from my lawyer informing me that The Dread Pro-Se Kimberlin filed a notice of appeal for his loss in the peace order case. As of this writing, there is no indication that any criminal charges are pending.
Breitbart Unmasked has published an article with Matt Osborne’s byline that states that I committed perjury during the Kimberlin peace order hearing last Friday. The facts debunking that claim have been laid out here and here. There’s one more bit of information that the Gentle Reader should know.
On 29 August, 2013, Breitbart Unmasked published an article with a byline of “Xenophon” titled LEE STRANAHAN AND AARON WALKER SMEAR A TEENAGER’S FAMILY AND TRY TO SNUFF OUT HER CAREER. Osborne has admitted that he used that byline at BU during that period. That article contains the following block quote from Twitter:Given that the “proof” of my alleged perjury was the “fact” that I has sent the “Brett Kimberlin uses news story …” tweet that Lee Stranahan actually sent and given that Osborne included the original proper version in his earlier BU article, it is reasonable to conclude that his erroneous reporting is the result of a reckless disregard for the truth.
I demand retraction of and apology for all false statements published by Breitbart Unmasked concerning me and any matters related to the Kimberlin peace order.
UPDATE—The 29 August, 2013, Breitbart Unmasked article has been taken down from the BU site, but it is available on the Wayback Machine. Additionally, the entire BU site has been routinely backed up offline, and I have the original html code for the post in hand.
