Lots of talk about the fake website set up making fun of Fred Thompson and whether a rival campaign was behind it. My take is that the MSM is showing “concern” about the “controversy” simply to drive more traffic to a site that’s making fun of a conservative candidate.
So when I read the first story about it, I did what any traffic-whore would do. I checked to see if similar domains were available. And to my surprise, phoneyfred.com was. I also quickly realized that since the bogus site was set up on a “.org” domain many people would likely just type in “.com” out of habit. So I registered phoneyfred.com and redirected to this site.
I figured it would be good for a few hits here and there and would allow those seeking negative information about a conservative candidate to enjoy a free education on the realities of life. So imagine my delight when I realized CBSNews and the New York Times published the wrong domain name in their rush to publish the story.
If there’s one thing you can count on in life, it’s the predictability of MSM bias.
