Liar

 Like a lot of journalists, I get hung up on that pesky issue of "truth." Truth is our job. All we have is the public trust, and every time someone fails to do the work of vetting stories, the whole profession suffers.
Isn't that a precious bit of bullshit? Nothing happens when pundits lie unless the powers-that-be want to get rid of them anyway. They move on to the next place of employment or are given a raise or a better job.

But its true! Her commitment to truth explains all the equivocation, evasion, fudge, quibble, qualification; temporizing, uncertainty, prevarication, vagueness (thank you, thesaurus!) of her interminable idiotic "columns".

She's the most ethical journalist ever!
