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.

    This Non-Compliant Jewish Female better watch her bra-strap. She’s being “vetted” as we speak. He’s going to be after her like she’s the last Cheeto in the bag. 😯

  4. Because says:

    Somebody needs to tweet Betsy about Johnson #2’s (lol) brasnapping past. #brasnapper

  5. Abu says:

    Do we have a replacement for PAAAAAMMMMMMMMMMMMM? And since Ms. Rothstein’s also Jewish the question must be axed: does Charles Foxy Johnson has a problem with Jooooooos. We know the correct answer to that.
    Fat, shut-in, unwashed, hippy anti-Semite bastard!

  6. In that twitter avi there….Betsy’s kinda hot.

    I can only wonder though if she’s using one from a previous decade like our pal CJ.

  7. Octopus says:

    I think I like her. 🙂

    Note: she’s had run-ins with fat, confrontational hippie-losers before.

    Betsy Rothstein
    Born and raised in Akron, Ohio, Betsy has been covering and torturing Washington media for the past three years. Early on she studied journalism in England, interviewing punk rockers in Piccadilly Square who stole her notebook and ripped it up. After graduating from Union College with a B.A. in Spanish, she began her journalism career in Cambridge, Mass., working for a Cuban newspaper where she conducted man-on-the-street interviews. She asked Latinos about their love lives. “Do Latinos make better lovers or what?” She soon moved out west to Denver, where she worked for two rival Hispanic weeklies for one year each. Next stop: J-school at Northwestern’s Medill School of Journalism, where she earned a master’s degree. In the years following grad school she worked at the Boca Raton News as a business reporter followed by a brief stint as a press secretary for former Rep. Robert Wexler (D-Fla.). She spent the next decade on Capitol Hill covering hard news, features and gossip for The Hill Newspaper. In 2009 she quit and moved to Portland, Ore. and wrote about the many long-haired men there who distinctly resemble Jesus. They weren’t all kind (one was fat and confrontational) but she got her story. Prior to joining TheDC, Betsy was the editor of FishbowlDC, a Washington media gossip blog.

    The Daily Caller and Ms. Rothstein better gird their loins, and cover their bra-straps. 😆

    Dallas Ebola Updates: Nurse’s Condition Upgraded to “Good,” Duncan’s Contacts All Symptom-Free http://lgf.bz/1qqdAY1

    A little background information:
    Duncan was the Ebola victim who died after being released from the hospital because he was
    “Symptom-Free”

    …the more you know….

    • Macker says:

      Now watch! if this nurse fully recovers, the “reverend” Jesse Jackson will undoubtedly speak out against her, for she is not black, and once again raise the spectre of RAAAAACISM!
      But enough of that. Back to bashing selrahC!

    • Arachne says:

      I don’t recall the hospital ever saying he was “symptom free.” You don’t give antibiotics if the individual doesn’t have symptoms. He had a temperature and flu-like symptoms. He DID NOT tell the hospital personnel he had been exposed to Ebola or give any information to them that would make them believe he was a potential Ebola patient. Believe it or not ICK-arus, when you show up at the Emergency Room, they’re trained to think Horses, not Zebras.

      We, however, will continue to smear you as honestly as we can.

        No need to thank us.

      Oh noes, it looks like goose has competition from this Eli Clifton fellow as the resident LGF chuckles fluffer.

  17. Octopus says:

    It’s not even smearing, what we do here. We just point and laugh at the funny clown-person, and his lackey. They do all the work! 😆

  18. livefreeor die says:

    You’d think he’d love being interviewed since he works so hard to get attention and links. This one even involves a chick! Then he immediately goes out and starts whining and picking a fight with her and later has a Pamtrum.

    Me thinks someone loves being a victim.

    I see Betsy Rothstein’s having a nice chat tonight with the obsessed loons who’ve been stalking me for years. Birds of a feather.

    ***************************

    STAND BY FOR SHOCKINGLY LOUD, OUT OF CONTEXT AUDIO!

    Followed by some twaddle about this blog having something to do with serbia.

    And the obligatory “turner” lie!

    Further followed by dishonest obfuscation regarding LGF and breivik.

    How many Tweets did Fatass crank out today gloating about how he got Ginger Chuck thrown off Twitter?

    Chuckles even sucks at lying

    • ISpeakJive says:

      He doesn’t like to see inaccurate information spread around, so he attacks Chuck C. for “Nina Pham” which was accurate information.

      Yeah, Chuck F. Great excuse. Nice try at back-peddling.

      Betsy kicked his ass today. 🙂 🙂 🙂

  21. swamprat says:

    The guy who dox’ed Patterico complains about chuck johnson doxing.

    The Pam Geller, Jim Hoft, Dana Loesh stalker is complaining about being stalked.
    Imagine that.
    The only man stalking and losing to a dead blogger; Beitbart.

  22. swamprat says:

    Charles Johnson @Green_Footballs · 2m 2 minutes ago

    I suggest RTing every offensive tweet by @ChuckCJohnson and copying it to @support and @safety.

    I see the research in banning the suspiciously dispicable @honoringourCSA has paid off nicely.

    Not that charles and Shoq and AngryBlackLady have been associated with any form of organized banning of twitter accounts. (cough, #stoprush #twittergulag,cough)

    • ISpeakJive says:

      Be sure and report every “offensive” tweet you come across, Chuck. That should keep you busy for about, oh, 94 million years or so.

      Ban stick by proxy.

      Will Twitter ever tire of being used this way?

  23. Dudebro says:

    Shit just got real!!!!

  24. Pakimon says:

    Going outside to take a dump on the front lawn I’d bet.

    He’s afraid to use the porta-john in the vacant lot up the street because his dudebro neighbors will tip it over with him inside. 😆

  25. Juan Epstein says:

    Chuck C better watch out.

    He might get Breviked.

  26. Octopus says:

    Oh, my aching ass! 😆

    The stupidity of the article at Jezebel that Chunky breathlessly tweets and posts to LGF is simply breathtaking. This idea that concern about containing Ebola is racist is just mind-bogglingly idiotic, and only possible in a sick mind where EVERYTHING is racist. In Chunky’s mind, for example.

  27. just poop says:

    • Octopus says:

      What took her so long, was that she was trying to write an even-handed, rational piece about a Twitter-kerfuffle. Little did she know, she was dealing with a 60-something, infantilized, rageaholic paranoid. She quickly caught on, though.

      Chunky has the most immaculate clocks in the world, though. Gets them cleaned constantly.

      • Because says:

        Chuck C didn’t exactly help the situation, looking like clown #2. She made the mistake of thinking that there had to be a rational Johnson in there somewhere. She-chicks like her should realize that Johnsons aren’t rational. They think with the wrong head.

  28. Octopus says:

    Note: All of the concern in the following article is motivated by racism. Just so you know.

    Forecast for Ebola worsens as virus’ footprint widens
    Experts fear epidemic size doubling every three weeks

    Head of USAID Rajiv Shah, center, inspects a newly built Ebola treatment center in Monrovia, Liberia, on Tuesday. The World Health Organization is focused on treating patients in Sierra Leone and Guinea, in addition to Liberia.

    LONDON – West Africa could face up to 10,000 new Ebola cases a week within two months, the World Health Organization warned Tuesday, adding that the death rate in the current outbreak has risen to 70 percent.

    WHO assistant director-general Dr. Bruce Aylward gave the grim figures during a news conference in Geneva. Previously, the agency had estimated the Ebola mortality rate at around 50 percent overall. In contrast, in events such as flu pandemics, the death rate is typically under 2 percent.

    Acknowledging that Ebola was “a high mortality disease,” Aylward said the U.N. health agency was still focused on trying to get sick people isolated and provide treatment as early as possible.

    Death toll at 4,447

    He told reporters if the world’s response to the Ebola crisis isn’t stepped up within 60 days, “a lot more people will die” and health workers will be stretched even further. Experts say the epidemic is doubling in size about every three weeks.

    WHO raised its Ebola death toll tally Tuesday to 4,447 people, nearly all of them in West Africa, out of more than 8,900 believed to be infected. Aylward said calculating the death rate means tracking the outcomes of all possible patients – a complicated process since the numbers of cases are substantially underreported and much patient data is missing.

    Health workers have been hit hard by the virus, which is spread by contact with bodily fluids like blood, vomit and diarrhea. Doctors Without Borders said 16 of its employees had been infected with Ebola and nine of them have died.

    Speaking Tuesday in Johannesburg, the head of the charity’s South Africa unit, Sharon Ekambaram, said medical workers have received woefully inadequate assistance from the international community.

    “Where is WHO Africa? Where is the African Union?” said Ekambaram. “We’ve all heard their promises in the media but have seen very little on the ground.”

    For the last month, there’s been about 1,000 new Ebola cases per week – including suspected, confirmed and probable cases, Aylward said. The U.N. agency was aiming to get 70 percent of Ebola cases isolated and 70 percent of victims safely buried by December to reverse the outbreak.

    Trying to treat

    Sierra Leone, Guinea and Liberia have been the hardest-hit nations in the current epidemic, and Aylward said WHO was very concerned about the spread of Ebola in their capital cities – Freetown, Conakry and Monrovia – where people move freely across borders.

    While some regions have seen the number of Ebola cases stabilize or fall, Aylward said “that doesn’t mean they will get down to zero.”

    He said WHO was still focused on trying to treat Ebola patients, despite West Africa’s often-broken health care systems.

    “It would be horrifically unethical to say that we’re just going to isolate people,” he said, noting that new strategies like handing out protective equipment to families and setting up very basic clinics – without much treatment – was a priority.

    Aylward said there was no evidence that any countries were hiding Ebola cases, but said countries bordering the affected area, including Ivory Coast, Mali and Guinea-Bissau, were at high risk of importing the disease.

    “This is not a virus that’s easy to suppress or hide,” he said, noting that Ebola has not spread very much internationally. “I don’t expect this virus to just go anywhere. There is exit screening in place and sick people won’t be moving.”

        Yeah, does Stalker Charles state that anywhere? You would think that would be the subject of another essay, “How I Was Repeatedly Lied To By The Progressive Left For Years And Accepted A Falsehood That They Peddled For Political Gain That Has Now Resulted In The Deaths Of Thousands”.

        OK, so the title needs tightening. I’m an idea man, not an editor.

  31. OLT's BUMF! says:

    Because is right. Women, girls, ladies … never trust a Johnson.

    You may like a Johnson now and then, you make like a Johnson every day, you may even love a Johnson. Every once in a while, enjoy a Johnson. It’s only natural, and frankly the Johnson enjoys it too.

    But never trust one.

    Most men know not to trust a Johnson, especially THEIR Johnson. Johnsons make poor choices, Johnsons fail to consider consequences, Johnsons are blind to reality.

    It is known that Johnsons are the primary reason for going to The Donkey Show.

    Never go to The Donkey Show. Slap that Johnson until it sits down and behaves.

    Whatsup with Switzerland? This is kinda fishy.
