Snark attack! Ron Fournier has a very ‘special’ tweet for Eric Boehlert


For the uninitiated, #FF stands for “follow Friday.” We’ve always kind of wondered if @EricBoehlert was a parody account.

Eric Boehlert blasts Twitchy for questioning FLOTUS on childhood obesity

Eric Boehlert

So what if the decline in childhood obesity started in 2003, seven years before Michelle Obama announced the Let’s Move! initiative. If you question the FLOTUS-is-responsible-for-all-good-things narrative, you’re nothing more than an anti-science moron. So says Media Matters “Senior Fellow” Eric Boehlert: brainiacs at @twitchyteam claim child obesity rate started falling a "decade ago" so FLOTUS […]

Eric Boehlert: Where are the consequences for conservative pundits who got it wrong?


For the sake of argument, let’s agree with Media Matters’ Eric Boehlert for the moment that Peggy Noonan counts as a conservative pundit, albeit one who claimed that conservatives secretly thanked her for consistently slamming the Romney campaign.
