Quote of the Day:

“Don’t threaten my staff, you terrorist coward. If you have an issue, take it up with me.”

Breitbart News Texas Bureau Chief Brandon Darby.

NED RESNIKOFF: “I think if I could ban one genre of Internet journalism it might be ‘I did something unpleasant because I thought you might find it amusing.'”

OLIVIA NUZZI: “hm really? I liked Weaver’s piece, and I like Rebecca Harrington’s NY Mag series where she tries crazy diets.”

Resnifkoff gave examples: 1. “I rode a Segway everywhere for one week because this is why I got a Master’s degree in journalism and did four unpaid internships.” 2. “I spent 48 hours at a TGI Friday’s because apparently this is what people click on.”

A question we must all ponder: “I don’t have anything until midnight tonight. Anyone in DC want to meet up?” — GotNewsCharles C. Johnson on Tuesday night.

Confessional. (BuzzFeed, spoiler alert: you may want to cover your eyes for this one)

“I have a right, as a Christian, to believe that God ordained marriage as between a man & a woman & that doesn’t make me evil, or anti-gays.” — David Limbaugh, brother to Rush.


“I hope you enjoy the end of your career as much as I will but I don’t think that’s possible, @WesleyLowery.” — Charles C. Johnson.
