    An Ethics Lesson For USA Today's 'Queer' Bullies

    But one reporter wasn't interested in covering the actual news of the Heisman winner's triumph. He was interested in sabotaging it. Within hours of the press conference, USA Today sports writer Scott Gleeson penned an article attacking Murray for posting "tweets using an anti-gay slur." Murray and family awoke Monday morning to a barrage of character smears slamming his "homophobic" posts from six years ago — when Murray was 14 or 15 years old and jokingly called his friends "queer." Google is now clogged with wall-to-wall coverage of his teenage antics from CNN to "The Today Show" to every sports outlet and his hometown Oklahoma newspaper.

    Gleeson's hit piece reeks of deceptive vigilantism, not journalism. After noting that Murray had a "Saturday to remember," Gleeson wrote that "the Oklahoma quarterback's memorable night also helped resurface social media's memory of several homophobic tweets more than six years old."

    Who "resurfaced social media's memory?" Why, it was Gleeson himself! By creating an illusion that Murray's schoolboy tweets were the subject of any scrutiny and outrage other than Gleeson's own, USA Today gave us a shining example of the manufacturing of fake news. Ain't misleading passive voice grand?

    We’re tempted to suggest a conspiracy here — but it’s just liberals agreeing yet again that conservatives have hidden, evil motives, because modern liberals simply can’t conceive of any other reason to disagree with the liberal consensus.

    “Moral precepts are constant through the ages and not obedient to circumstances.”

    I suppose if you don't like the act of men packing their male friends rectum you are a bad person.
    It's funny no one wants to put their hands in feces, butt they don't mind dipping their penis in it.
    Strange, really strange.

    Kyler should have stuck to beating his girlfriend or robbing liquor stores or something...they'd have given him as many passes for any of those as he needed.

    The only thing he can do now to get back in the good graces of the "Journalists" is to kneel for the National Anthem.
