As Al Jazeera America emerged Tuesday, a few anonymASSES surfaced and wrote in to FishbowlDC with some “news” about The Daily Caller‘s outspoken White House Correspondent Neil Munro.
#1: “The DC’s Neil Munro has been hired by Al Jazeera America as a conservative contributor to Fault Lines. It’s only part-time and he’ll be staying at the DC though. My sources are high-up in Doha.” #2: “I can confirm that Neil Munro has been hired to cover the White House for Al Jazeera America. Unbelievable.”
Dear ASSES, You guys are hilarious. Thanks for the tip that has about as much truth as Nate Silver going to work for Politico.
We asked Munro for comment.
He replied, “Why would they hire me when I write clearly about the [Muslim] Brotherhood? Besides, when I became a U.S. citizen, I swore in my Oath of Allegiance to ‘renounce and abjure absolutely and entirely all allegiance and fidelity to any foreign prince, potentate, state, or sovereignty of whom or which the applicant was before a subject or citizen.’”
