Politico Scribe’s Writing Chops Under Assault Again

David Rogers, a seasoned reporter who covers Congress at Politico, can’t catch a break from the right or left, it seems.

In late October, The Daily Caller’s Christopher Bedford wrote a piece attacking a story by Rogers, calling it “garbage.” Today, Jamison Foser‘s (formerly with Media Matters) turn to take a swing.

“Awful Politico paragraph is awful,” Foser tweeted. Accompanying the tweet was a screen shot of a graf from a story by Rogers published last night. The story is headlined “Getting past grudges to fiscal cliff deal.”

Dick Morris Column Lights Up Twitter

A column in The Hill by Republican Strategist Dick Morris has a handful of people all atwitter.

In it, Morris makes the case that Democrats, who made electoral gains in the last election, will doom themselves by continuing on a platform promoting increases in tax rates and federal spending.

Morris famously predicted GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney would win the election by a landslide. Of course, that was horseshit.

Media Matters’ Jamison Foser sarcastically paraphrased Morris’ column as, “And so, by being spectacularly wrong, I was right.”

Foser’s colleague Simon Maloy expressed dismay that Morris’ column was “published by an actual newspaper.”

Talking Points Memo‘s Benjy Sarlin described the column: “An introspective Dick Morris looks deep within after the elec– just kidding. ‘Obama lost by winning!’”

After Morris’ election prediction bungle, Media Matters ran a story citing numerous staffers at The Hill questioning his credibility. “He is a laughingstock, especially the way he acted in this last election,” one anonymous staffer reportedly said.
