It's cute that the people at BuzzFeed think they are reporters.

The answer should be: ask your mom.

It is one of the signature developments of Washington during the Obama years: a flourishing F-bomb culture, one that has spread far beyond the White House and now pervades government-media relations in both parties, all across the capital.

Considering the incredible waves of complete bullshiat the administration's people deal with from the right and right-wing pseudo-jounralists every waking moment of every single day I'm kind of surprised they've managed to limit themselves to profanities.

They certainly have far more self-control and composure than I would in their position.

That's pretty much how I'd answer it.

I haven't finished the article yet (or even the first page), but Michael Hastings is absolutely a journalist.

It's pretty clear reading the exchange that the "reporter" was being an asshole and using foul langauge (NTTAWWT) first, and to bring it to the internet and play the victim and cry that they responded to him with language similar to his own is laughable.

Because no politician ever told somebody to "Fark off" before Obama.

at least not outside the senate floor, amiright?

This is one of the reasons why I wouldn't do well as an elected representative - I would answer almost all privates questions with "fark off."

THIS^

Cheney is the one who breached that protocol when he told Pat Leahy to "fark off", which ultimately lead to some Doctor riding his bike to return the favor to Cheney who was doing a crass PhotoOp in La. after BushInc's shabby reaction to Katrina by telling him to "Go fark Yourself, Mr.Cheney.

"Why do you bother to ask questions you already know the answer to," Philippe Reines, a communications adviser to Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, asked the reporter.

"Why don't you give answers that aren't bullshiat for a change?" responded Michael Hastings, a reporter for the BuzzFeed website.


Professional.

Reines then called Hastings an "unmitigated asshole" and suggested that he "[expletive] off." Hastings responded with a sneering remark about Reines's personal life. Reines closed by telling Hastings that he was now designated as "junk mail" on his computer and telling him to "have a good life."

The reporter set the tone with an expletive. Fark him.

I'm pretty sure that IS the right answer to that question. If that candidate isn't funneling funds to his bedmate, if she is not giving preferential treatment to the lover, affairs are between the candidate and his or her spouse. Period.
