  1. “Adrian Chen…”

    Ah, bullshit artist investigated by a bullshit artist.

    It’s bullshit all the way down.

      But what does the bullshit stand on?  It has to be supported by something!  There has to be a Prime Bullshitter somewhere!

    Adrian Chen and “The Truth” aren’t things that go together, in general. Looking to Gawker for investigative journalism seems like a bad idea.

      Let’s just call the whole thing shit. Just the other day I heard on TV, “the killing of Bin Laden, as documented in the movie ‘Zero Dark Thirty’“…it’s a losing battle unless you throw the baby out with the bathwater.

    Saw “Adrian Chen”, “Gawker”, didn’t bother reading any further after that.

  4. “Complete B-S is rather strong, but I would certainly query some aspects of the Esquire piece.”  Osama bin Laden.

    Hmm. Esquire. That rings a bell. Ah yes, I put them on my “ignore” list after this:

    “President Obama’s proposed Brain Activity Map Project could lead to cures for Alzheimer’s, autism, and schizophrenia. But members of Congress should read the fine print when the $3 billion proposal hits their desks next month — because the project might also provide the first viable means of remotely controlling the human mind.” Apparently their standards are consistent over time.
