Obsession is an Ugly ThingPosted: November 29, 2014
During the past few years, Charles has gone through numerous periods during which the posts at LGF have reflected his obsession with one perceived enemy or another. Past targets of this attention include, in roughly decreasing order of posts devoted: Andrew Breitbart, Sarah Palin, Glenn Beck, Pam Geller, and Glen Greenwald.
In recent months, 3 major events have dominated the US news cycles: the Michael Brown shooting, the presence of Ebola in the US, and the midterm elections. What makes the LGF coverage of these events unique is how Charles effortlessly cuts straight to the heart of these complex issues, namely, how someone else is covering them. Lately he has singled out two individuals for his special attention, Jim Hoft of thegatewaypundit.com, and Charles C. Johnson of gotnews.com .
Between August 12th and November 29th,
- LGF had 105 posts about Ferguson, 28 (27%) of these focused on Hoft or CC Johnson.
- LGF had 46 posts concerning Ebola, 12 (26%) of these focused on Hoft or CC Johnson.
- LGF had 64 posts (out of 376, 17%) focused on either Hoft or CC Johnson.
- LGF had 12 posts (3%) focused on the midterm elections.
It wouldn’t be a statistics post without a chart, so here’s what may possibly be the first Venn diagram in the history of DoD.
