Who’s the first, you ask? Joe Biden. But he has an excuse.
Well, Jake. Speaking of "bizarre conspiracy theories and smear campaigns spreading lies unmoored from reality"… How many times did you slobber over that deranged and indecent wack job, Michael Avenatti, on your show? Too many to count on your fingers and toes, I'll surmise.

If You Take Your Degree And A Six Pack Of Beer…
You, too, can be a ‘Yellow Journalist.’
Just kidding. I was trying out the newest headline writing style practiced by the Mainstream Media, called “Smolletting”. Here’s the real story brought to you by the ‘real’ CNN.
When Travis Kauffman went for a run near Fort Collins, Colorado, little did he know his workout would include suffocating a mountain lion.
“I feel like I should go buy a bunch of lottery tickets,” he said.
On Thursday, authorities identified Kauffman as the runner who won a fight-to-the-death struggle last week after the cat ambushed him along the trail.
The Columbia Journalism Review reported, “Correction as Weapon: Self-Inflicted Wounds.”
Can you tell what’s going on in this 2001 correction/apology published by the Ottawa Citizen?
The Ottawa Citizen and Southam News wish to apologize for our apology to Mark Steyn, published Oct. 22. In correcting the incorrect statements about Mr. Steyn published Oct. 15, we incorrectly published the incorrect correction. We accept and regret that our initial regrets were unacceptable and we apologize to Mr. Steyn for any distress caused b our previous apology.
I feel the offering deserves consideration as one of the top ten corrections of all time. Admittedly, though, it belongs at the bottom end of the list, due to the fact that it doesn’t actually tell you what the incorrect correction got wrong, or why the paper needed to apologize for its apology.
From the Daily Caller, “SEBASTIAN GORKA, JIM ACOSTA TRADE VERBAL BLOWS IN WHITE HOUSE DUST-UP.”
Multiple witnesses were aghast when they say Acosta saw Gorka, who just debuted his SALEM Radio Network show “America First,” and told him bluntly that media-related meetings with the president were for “real journalists” only. Gorka proceeded to berate Acosta at a high volume.
“Abilio ‘Jim’ Acosta, you are a dickhead,” Gorka fired back at Acosta.
Abilio James Acosta-Cortez…. Gorka's comments were a whole lot less about your name than your demeanor and deportment. He said, "“Abilio ‘Jim’ Acosta, you are a dickhead." You should own that with the same alacrity that you own your name.
