  1. Does the Examiner realize the liability issues that await them if they fail to fact check him? As an FYI, stating things in the form of a question does not necessarily insulate someone from libel actions. Popehat has a good explanation of this.


  2. From BS profile:

    “What I Examine:
    Howard County Liberal
    You can call him Lester. It’s not his real name. It’s a pen name so that he can write what he wants to write without being beset upon by trolls. This way, trolls can attack his e-mail address, his Twitter timeline, his Facebook page, but leave his family alone. Lester has been retired from his job as a writer/editor with the Federal Government since 2011 due to advanced Parkinson’s disease, but his writing keeps his mind sharp and active. He welcomes reader contact — even from trolls!”

    Questions: What “trolls” have attacked which family members? You know, like tweeting them relentlessly about the death of a child, calling them a mail-order bride, etc.?


  3. I see he is threatening other Examiner reporters to not say anything bad about him or he’ll get them fired. So much for his love of free speech huh?
