#IStandWithDavid: Gwen Ifill and other ‘real journalists’ express support for disgraced David Chalian

Erstwhile Yahoo bureau chief David Chalian got himself spectacularly canned today after being caught shamefully accusing Mitt and Ann Romney of being “happy to have a party while black people drown.” Common sense dictates that Chalian be held up as a pathetic excuse for a journalist. Apparently, PBS’s Gwen Ifill is running severely short on common sense. Shortly after the news of Chalian’s firing broke, Ifill coughed up a treacly Twitter hairball and expressed her support for “God’s gift to political journalism.”

Twitterers were rightfully mystified — and disgusted:

As a matter of fact, yes:

Excuse us while we vomit all over ourselves.

Ifill’s ridiculous #IStandWithDavid hashtag was ripe for mockage, and conservatives didn’t disappoint:

Heh.

Don’t worry, Gwen and Friends. If you should find yourselves in the unemployment line, where you belong for your blatant hackery and dishonesty, Twitter conservatives are always more than willing to lend a hand with helpful job suggestions.
