FACT CHECKING DEPT: NY TIMES JOURNO CALLS ANDREW WK A RAPPER
Damn doggie, it been a minute ain't it? I'm not gonna lie. To paraphrase Stephen A. Smith, "Quite frankly, I knocked a girl up." But it's all good now - let's not talk about it anymore. It's in the past.
Yo, I know this a rap blog and all, but I'm also a journalist, and I be holdin' da media to standards of practice and shit. I always be seeing mistakes and shit in so-called reputable publications, and when I see dat, I be like, "That's the shit I don't like."
Some of you flowerpot heads might have seent in the news that ANDREW W.K. was tapped as a cultural ambassador to Bahrain (dunno where that is, but I bet it is a shitty place). Then like the fuckboys they is, the US State Department rescinded da invitation! Wack shit, son. But even wacker was the NY TIMES referring to AWK as "Andrew W.K., a rapper and party-anthem rocker," whom the fuckboy State Dept rejected "after they reviewed his work." Sounds like you ain't reviewed his work yoself, homebwoy!
Like da irate media watchdawg I is, I immediately Googled tha author of this misinformation, JAMES C. MCKINLEY JR. A lil background: homie went to Cornell University, Mizzou Journo School and got some blemishes on his record (no homo). I wanted to hate tha dude, but then I saw this nutso Anti-Islamic blog that took Mr. McKinley to task. Y'all can read up on that bullshit on they website, but the crux of the matter is this: when a nutjob punk emailed McKinley a stangry response for "failing" to identify a mass-murderer as a jihadist, McKinley responded with a terse "Fuck you" - no period even! Gangsta shit! And fo that, he earnded my respect. Carry on, Mr. McKinley!
