George Will vs. the Internet
It is indeed a thing of beauty to see hornrimmed hack George Will get raked over the coals by Media Matters and others for just making sh*t up in a recent global-warming-denial column, but the cherry on top is supplied by Jonathan Schwarz, who relays a wonderful anecdote about a punking that Noam Chomsky delivered to Will and Newsweek way back in the pre-internet days of 1982. Don't miss it.
If there's one thing to love about the internet, it's the promise it offers when used right: No more impunity for sinecured liars.
