The McConnell Bind, National Journal

National Journal's many errors of fact. An interactive event-- if the media organization is listening, that is.

10 minutes pass. @NationalJournal #skitters on with this message: https://t.co/tgSlqyMCMJ. The #efficacy of a social media message #1100HRS

It is May 30th, and this page is still being written today. But, let's go back about a month. Actually, this is about Henry Blodget and the #efficacy of a social media message.

Ron's travel day

There's a bite at the end of the fishing line.

Taking the McConnell Bind to a new level of nonsense (in addition to historical inaccuracy), nationaljournal.com states, "No wonder Republican senators, including Senator Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, raced to the floor to join in."

@mattizcoop Hello, Mr. Cooper. It is #1100HRSDay2. Your error is the most pathetic: "Senator Majority Leader Mitch McConnell... " #1100HRS

The following was published here before making a telephone call to National Journal.


Hello. My name is Greg Fisher, and I write creditscoring.com.

I'm reciting the words I'm speaking now from a web page on creditscoring.com.

I'm writing an article about the U.S. Senate, and, for it, I want to quote the person who operates your Twitter feed (@NationalJournal). See "HASHTAG 11-HUNDRED H-R-S." Do you see it?

Or, if somebody ordered that person or persons to not reply to me, I'd like to speak to that person.

Or, may I speak to the top person there?
