Serial Liar James Rosen Responds To Me Again

It looks like James Rosen, who wrote a book filled with words, has trouble understanding his own words.  Never fear. I'm here to help.

Rosen, for those smart enough to avoid watching Fox "News," is the mendacious channel's Chief Washington Correspondent. However, Rosen also wrote a doorstopper of a book about John Mitchell -- Richard Nixon's Attorney General and, later, head of the Committee to Re-elect the President (aptly shortened to CREeP). The Strong Man: John Mitchell and the Secrets of Watergate can charitably be called Revisionist History, but more accurately it's filled with lies, half-truths, and shaded language. To make a long story short, according to Rosen, John Mitchell was innocent of all Watergate crimes -- even those for which he was convicted --  because he was out for a pack of cigarettes when they happened, or something.

My bun fight with James Rosen began in February of 2012, back when we were all so young and innocent. It flared into life when Rosen rudely jumped into a Twitter conversation I was having with Watergate whistle-blower John W. Dean. While I promised Rosen I would read his book, and did so almost immediately, it took me a year to finally review it for Not Now Silly because, quite frankly, it wasn't much of a priority. That post, Did Roger Ailes Dupe James Rosen, Or Did Rosen Dupe 'Merka?, has risen to become the #5 All Time post at Not Now Silly. However, more importantly, in it I made the claim that Fox "News" Chief Roger Ailes was Rosen's secret source quoted on Page 61.

Farce Au Pain ► The Soft Launch

COMING SOON!!! DECEMBER 1ST!!!

Tune in to Not Now Silly -- Your Rest Stop on the Information Highway -- on December 1st for the first thrill-packed chapter of Farce au Pain, the book I have been working on for quite some time. Enough is written (and edited) to begin serialization. 


Why serialize Farce au Pain? Because I like to compare myself to Charles Dickens whenever possible. Dickens serialized his books and this struck me as a good idea. Your mileage may vary.

So, be sure to check Not Now Silly -- the Home of the Steam-Powered Word-0-Matic -- on December 1st. Get in on the ground floor of what is promising to be an exciting blog adventure, especially if you are old enough to have lived through the times and events depicted.

Aunty Em!!! Aunty Em!!!
If you are a new reader, welcome to my irregular blog series in which I pull back the curtain like The Wizard of Oz -- AUNTY EM!!! AUNTY EM!!! -- and reveal some of the inner-workings of the Not Now Silly blog. If you are not new, then you already know this is just an excuse to beg my readers to click on some of the adverts on this blog. Those people are already happily clicking away. It's because they enjoy my writing and know the return I get from clicks doesn't even cover the maintenance fees I pay each month to keep Not Now Silly going, but it sure helps. So, click 'til it hurts. Then click one more time.

There's a lot of Not Now Silly news to report this go-round, so let's get right to it.

Once they returned the headlines were culled so that only the most interesting are used for the Sunday edition.
