Man under siege complains about “hit piece”

Today Charles had a phone interview with Betsy Rothstein of Daily Caller about the twitter banning of his most recent nemesis; Charles C. Johnson. Today the online version of Norman Bates discussed the phone interview and felt it was going to be a “hit piece” on him. In other words, it was a real interview with tough questions and not a fluff piece.

BetsyCharles was playing the “man under seige” routine to win sympathy from his dwindling band of losers.

Betsy Rothstein released her article on Charles this afternoon.

Enter Charles C. Johnson’s main nemesis: Charles F. Johnson, a.k.a. a guy who writes a blog called “Little Green Footballs.” He says he’s been a blogger for 13 years. He says he’s often confused for Charles C. Johnson, a fact he abhors. Before blogging, this Charles Johnson was a guitarist and played with the likes ofAl Jarreau, Stanley Clarke and George Duke.

He adamantly believes Charles. C. Johnson is scum for reporting the nurse’s name.

“My main issue is he didn’t confirm this information before publishing it,” Johnson #2 said in a lengthy phone conversation from LA where he lives. “He got it directly from a tipoff on Twitter.” How does he know how Johnson acquired the information? “I saw it all go down,” he said, referring only to Twitter, which is not exactly a person’s only method of reporting. “That is the difference between what he does and the mainstream media does. They confirmed it with the family. He has a history of being suspended in the past. … It’s just mean spirited.”

But in a public health crisis, shouldn’t the public know what’s happening to better protect itself?  ”I think it’s kind of outrageous what he’s doing,” Johnson #2 said. “I think there is a public interest but it has to be balanced with responsible journalism. …That’s my main beef with him — I think he’s inaccurate a lot and deliberately inflammatory.”

Johnson #2 claims he feels no glee over fueling the fire that got C. Johnson suspended for a second time in less than a week. ”It’s not something that makes me happy,” he said. “I just don’t like seeing inaccurate information spread around.”

Should Charles C. Johnson get tossed off Twitter permanently, Charles F. Johnson says he won’t be jumping for joy.”I guess I’ll be personally gratified, but I don’t take personal joy in it,” he said.

As for the journalistic value of reporting the nurse’s name, Johnson #2 said, “I think it needed to be confirmed with he family. The family begged media to respect their privacy and not release the name of the nurse. Apparently they changed their mind. …Apparently a few journalists agree with that. I think they asked for privacy and when the time came for that to change it was changed. To me, that’s not a bad thing.”

Johnson #2 insists he didn’t report C. Johnson to Twitter this time around. But he did the first time and claims they wouldn’t even read it because he had no direct involvement.

Charles C. Johnson thinks Charles F. Johnson is a joke. “You can use your imagination as to what I think the f stands for,” he deadpanned this morning over text.

Charles was not too please with this article and then proceeds to harass Betsy Rothstein on Twitter.

I enjoy the fact that Betsy calls out Charles for being the evil jerk he is, but she never should interviewed this online stalker. Now we can expect hit pieces on Betsy over at LGF and a daily twitter stalking. Charles loves playing the “man under siege” role and it is best for legitimate journalists to ignore the clown.
