Calling all masochists

March 11, 2009

For those of you who didn’t get a chance to enjoy the shrill, idiotic outpouring of rightwing radio jock invective the first time around, Caplis and Silverman went back to an All Churchill, All The Time format yesterday. You can download audio here, here, and here. It’s heavily skewed and chock full o’ lies (I may take the time to point out some of the major whoppers today, if I get a chance), but worth listening to for the sound from the trial.

Meanwhile, Vincent Carroll, another of the media figures who lead the howling mob, is seriously hedging his bets.

Update: So I couldn’t bring myself to listen to the whole show, but I didn’t need to get very far to find the first lie. That came 9 minutes in, when Silverman claimed the Investigating Committee of the Standing Committee on Research Misconduct was already in place when asked to review Ward Churchill’s academic misconduct. 

Flatout lie. They were selected specifically to review this case, which Craig Silverman ought to remember, as he, Dan Caplis, Vincent Carroll and a couple of local bloggers managed to run off the only potential members of the committee who knew anything about American Indian Studies. 

Interestingly, CU’s attorney made the same claim during jury selection, which ought to come back to bite him in the ass.
