Why Washington D.C. Gossip Sucks

In case you were wondering the latest happenings in a news story that contains the barest hint of news, Howeesha is here to help. Howeesha (aka The Hill’s Judy Kurtz) decided to bring us up to speed on a dead story. In this piece, she visits former Rep. Anthony Weiner‘s Twitter page to report to us this SHOCKING headline: It’s still there. Sweet feathery Christ, Judy! Have you told anyone else about this scoop? You need to blow the lid off this thing! Even the headline, “A year after scandal, Anthony Weiner’s Twitter page still up”, is wrong. It hasn’t been “a year”, it’s been 10 months. The whole story is silly, but, she just couldn’t sit on something THIS GOOD for another two months? At least then she could actually say she wrote the piece around the anniversary!

But, she didn’t. And that’s Why Washington D.C. Gossip Sucks.
