After seeing several comments on the Interwebz about how the Right was “pouncing” on the errors made in the misreporting of the Covington Kids harassment story, I clicked on the Dictionary widget on my Mac and found this as part of the definition of pounce—
notice and take swift and eager advantage of a mistake, remark, or sign of weakness: reporters who are just as eager to pounce on a gaffe as on a significant news story.
Well, I suppose we are taking advantage of the Left’s mistake. Their whole pitch was based on lies. It was their drummer who invaded someone else’s space. It was their “elder” who tried to provoke children, and it was they who cyberabused the youngsters. And it was their “elder” who may not be a respectable veteran, but a liar who misrepresented a military service record that appears to include stateside AWOL rather than service overseas.
Yeah, we pounced on that, and in the process, turned the Left’s fake news gaffe into a significant real news story.
