Dylan Stableford of Yahoo! News Nauseating Sean Hannity Butt-Kissing

A brown-noser is a person who acts favorably to his or her peers to gain stasis or fancy that will eventually be used to their advantage. Such as a raise, promotion, or acceptance in a group. Usually brown nosers will do anything to gain the approval of their person of choice ~ A definition from the Urban Dictionary, which is "a Web-based dictionary of slang words and phrases". Time magazine included it in a list of the "50 best websites of 2008".

I just saw a article on Yahoo! News that shocked me. I'd never seen a story from this organization with such a blantant partisan slant. Wikipedia says that Yahoo! News is an aggregator that gets it's content from a variety of sources, including Fox. However, they also note that "Since 2011 Yahoo! has expanded its focus to include original content, as part of its plans to become a major media organization".

Dylan Stableford is employed by Yahoo! News. The Business Insider reported on 5/6/2011 that "Yahoo snags media reporter Dylan Stableford". The "story" I'm objecting to is original content authored by him. Apparently the piece is from a Yahoo! News blog, so I guess Mr. Stableford sharing his opinions is appropriate. What he wrote sure as hell isn't straight news, that's for sure.

Following are some excerpts from the Stableford "story" (which concerns an appearance by the awesome progressive Representative for Minnesota's 5th congressional district, Keith Ellison on the 2/26/2012 airing of Fox Nooz's "Hannity") and my commentary regarding said excerpts...

Dylan Stableford: Democratic Rep. Keith Ellison exploded during a live interview with Sean Hannity on Tuesday, calling the Fox News host the "worst excuse for a journalist I've ever seen" and a "shill for the Republican Party". [Ellison] was on the program to discuss President Barack Obama's remarks on the sequester when he launched into a tirade aimed at Hannity, who [said] "The president is more concerned with fearmongering than finding a solution to the problem he created".

My Commentary: Oh, he "exploded" did he? I'd say Ellison took Hannity to task for his lies. The sequester isn't a problem the President created. Remember when Speaker Boner said "I got 98 percent of what I wanted in the debt deal"? The deal Boner was referring to was the deal that set up the sequester. But, instead of bringing this up, Stableford slimes Ellison by suggesting he "exploded".

Dylan Stableford: When Ellison called Hannity a "shill" for the GOP, the Fox News host tried to correct him. "I'm a registered conservative", Hannity said.

My Commentary: No, Dlyan, Hannity did not try to "correct" him. Ellison said Hannity is "the worst excuse for a journalist I have ever seen", and that Hannity is guilty of "yellow journalism". How could Hannity possibly correct Ellison regarding things the Representative GOT RIGHT?

Next Stableford reported that Hannity said, "Keep ranting", and Stableford wrote...

Dylan Stableford: Ellison did, and Hannity eventually ended the interview.

My Commentary: Wrong again, Dlyan. Ellison did not "keep ranting", he continued to take Hannity to task for his yellow journalism. Wikipedia defines yellow journalism as "a type of journalism that presents little or no legitimate well-researched news and instead uses eye-catching headlines to sell more newspapers", and that "techniques may include exaggerations of news events, scandal-mongering, or sensationalism".

This is EXACTLY what Fox Nooz does.

Stableford ends his article by quoting Hannity who dismissed Rep. Ellison by saying, "Congressman, you are a total waste of time... We're moving on, because our audience deserves better".

By ending with this quote how can one NOT conclude that Stableford agrees with Hannity - that Keith Ellison is "a total waste of time"? Snagging a hack like Stableford is part of Yahoo's plan to "become a major media organization"? Is Stableford angling for a job at Fox Nooz, or just a hardline partisan brown-noser? Either way, this progressive's stomach is churning. Egads! Could this Stableford fellow get his nose any further up Hannity's behind?

  1. Your hack of a liberal.

    The congressman reminded me of a 5th grader saying no I'm not you are. if that is the maturity and professionalism in the democaratic party we are in for a long 3 and half years. The republicans allowed the sequestration to be put on the table as a way to show your overspending comunist that we are serious about real spending cuts. For the repulicans to put defense spending in the line of fire to get real cuts, like welfare, then it shows they are serious about solving this debt problem. I agree we need tax reform, but to continue to tax and tax and tax is not the answer, and that is what your comandor and chief would like to do.

  2. Lucas: ...as a way to show your overspending communist that we are serious about real spending cuts.

    The president isn't a Communist. Nor is he an over spender. Politifact says "Obama [has overseen] the lowest annual increases in spending of any president in 60 years".

    Lucas: For the repulicans to put defense spending in the line of fire to get real cuts...

    The Republicans did not put the bloated military budget "in the line of fire". Defense spending is the ONLY place to go to get "real cuts". Offering to cut the military does not show seriousness at all.

    Lucas: like welfare...

    Welfare? GovernmentSpending.com says 11 percent of the federal budget goes toward welfare programs. For the military it's 24 percent. Kicking poor people to the curb isn't the answer to our deficit problem.

    Lucas: then it shows they are serious about solving this debt problem.

    It doesn't. If the Republicans were serious they'd put the closing of loopholes back on the table. Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan touted it as a centerpiece of their budget, now it's a no-go. Why? Because the Republicans aren't serious.

    Lucas: ...to continue to tax and tax and tax is not the answer, and that is what your commander and chief would like to do.

    President Obama advocates a balanced approach that includes new revenues and spending cuts. He has never advocated that we "tax and tax and tax".

  3. Obviously, a partisan commentary on an interview doesn't really qualify as anything "new" that just happened or in any sense "news". I guess the only "new" thing is that someone named Dylan turned right-wing. This is akin to milk turning sour, rotten chicken or a young person with everything going for them turning to crime or murder. It can only be a tragedy in today's world.

    I have been enjoying Yahoo, the best web-based email for many years. The best, because it totally kicks ass on Googol. But I never even dreamed of logging onto yahoo.com/ I always set my url at mail.yahoo.com/ I had completely forgotten that they even offered content. I was surprised to learn that my wife actually considered them a valid news source. I found their content generally objectionable and certainly way too sympathetic to the right wing cause today. As far as I am concerned, right-wingers in the U.S.A. have no more legitimacy than did Hitler, Stalin or any other totalitarian dictator. A lie is a lie. You don't balance the truth with lies and thusly call it fair.

  5. Just how much do you really know about Dylan Stableford? I know very little myself. I agree with you on this if you have it correct about Stableford. I just do not know if you have judged or misjudged him rightly so. Do you have any other examples of Stableford's articles (writings) which might signify that he is a conservative type of the likes of Hannity? Thanks for a response.

  6. Here is another post from me that concerns an article authored by Dylan Stableford. I conclude my commentary by saying "good job getting the Republican talking points out on this Dylan", but I think this one (the story authored by him that I discuss above) is a clearer example of Stableford's bias.

    I don't know a lot about him. Just read a couple of his articles (although I haven't noticed his name attached to any Yahoo stories recently).

  11. What poses as news these days - Trump one liners. So I'll make a brief comment as well, sad that now we have more news sources that ever and we have less ethics to get out the new quickly.
