No, but he is a jackass.

There is evidently no low too low for Matt Yglesias:

[Editor’s note: Twitchy redacted Howley’s phone number.]

LOL! Publishing reporters’ personal information is hilarious! Particularly if they work for that icky Daily Caller:

So mature.

Oh, snap!

Extremely pathetic.

https://twitter.com/stackiii/status/355791376203517952

He claims he doesn’t do very much reporting? We can’t argue with that. And anyway, it’s probably tough to make time for reporting when you’re so busy being a colossal douchenozzle.

Just pathetic.

Basically.

Update:

Yglesias whines:

Except it wasn’t an office phone number:

Still think releasing someone’s private number’s no big deal, Matty? Prove it:

We’ll wait.

Update:

Matty’s feeling chatty:

So call him, maybe. But only during business hours.

    Matty Glesias has always been an unprofessional journalist and, generally, a pathetic human being.

    Not content to rest on his laurels, he’s apparently trying to take both traits to new, um, “heights”.

    • Finrod Felagund

      He’s not a journalist. They actually seek facts to report. If he’s reported any facts in his entire career, it’s been accidental.

    • https://twitter.com/deseeded tombee

      He’s baiting angry tweeters to threaten his life so he can point out how angry and unhinged conservatives are.

        a little bird told me that if you were to take a phone number, and say, use it in one of those check your insurance rates banner ads, said phone number would be assailed with phone calls for at least the next 5 months.

  • Tugger – not quite dead yet

    I looked at this whole post and still have no idea what this whole pissing match is about.

    • Finrod Felagund

      It’s about Matt Yglesias being a complete jackass, again.

      • mike_in_kosovo

        “Again” implies a point at which Yglesias was *not*, in fact, a complete jackass.

        “Still” would be more apt, I believe.

        • Finrod Felagund

          Valid point.

        • http://twitter.com/thetugboatphil TugboatPhil

          More along the lines of “always a complete jackass” But your point is taken.

    • tjp77

      Some dude from the Daily Caller emailed Matt Yglesias to fact-check something about an event he was at, and instead of answering (or politely refusing to answer), he instead posted the personal phone number of the reporter to Twitter. Which is a dick move and totally unprofessional.

  • Billie Slash

    Hey, Matt’s mom said it was okay #FatAssMamasBoy

  • TocksNedlog

    Another day, another douchenozzle.

  • trixiewoobeans

    I can’t think of anyone needing an ass-kicking more right now than Yglesiracist.

  • http://discus.com yourmamatoo

    He should return the favor, and publish Matt’s personal info.

  • BenInNY

    I’d do the same to Yglesias but all I have is the address to his condo. Probably not a nice thing to put out there, huh?

    • Kevin

      You could sign him up for numerous informational packets for the hair club for men, which is like a public service, and therefore vicariously nice.

      • BenInNY

        That is an exceptionally good point, but I think I’d try to find local “furry” clubs that send out newsletters and invites to events.

        • Finrod Felagund

          I think he would appreciate getting on the Moral Majority mailing list. Wouldn’t you?

          • LeftFeather

            I’m pretty sure he wouldn’t mind a “Free trial” of Playgirl and some invites to Chip-N-Dales…

    Twitter Rules

    Posting another person’s private and confidential information is a violation of the Twitter Rules.

    Some examples of private and confidential information are:
    credit card information
    social security or other national identity numbers
    addresses or locations that are considered and treated as private
    non-public, personal phone numbers
    non-public, personal email addresses

  • John

    And what is Matty’s home address, phone number and personal email? And why has it not already been posted online? Ya ya, we’re ethical, we don’t do that sort of thing. And another small skirmish is lost in the war.

    • sentry_99

      It wouldn’t be fair to call his house. His parents don’t deserve to be harassed just because the douche still lives in their basement.

  • The Penguin

    Got called out on his bullsh*t, and Yglesias’ response is putting out someone’s personal info for questioning his sources . Yup, he fabricated and or altered said story, and has no defense obviously. So, the only thing a lib can do is this. Is this even legal?

  • Grandma HeadInjury

    LOL, somebody using “Matt Y” as a username posted his home address. That was gone quickly!

    • BenInNY

      You caught that too? he also posted his phone number on twitter. Everyone ought to give him a call.

  • ceemack

    Hey, Matty…if anybody looks at you and yells “Bravo! Bravo!”, you can rest assured they really mean “delta bravo”.

  • BenInNY

    Wow, almost as quickly as “matt” posted his address here it was deleted. I’ll only note that his property value went up $600K and he moved a few letters in the alphabet away from his previous address and into the nearby historic district. Scary he can afford that based on the crap he writes.

    • Grandma HeadInjury

      So that was the actual address?

      • BenInNY

        Yep.

        • Grandma HeadInjury

          Searching the same website brings up another address 7 alphabet letters away as well…interesting…

          • BenInNY

            That’s the condo on K right? Bought the new place in January.

          • Grandma HeadInjury

            Gotcha. Too funny. Okay, mods, go ahead and delete our comments… :-)

    • WilliamAmos

      If you believe that was actually Matt coming here to post his address there is a Bridge in Brooklyn for sale.

      • BenInNY

        Note the sarcasm quotes in my comment.
        In any case the link was correct – listed both his and his wife’s names, etc on a real estate transaction along with the seller’s “address, LLC” which from what I’ve seen over the years is pretty common. I used a similar site to find an old friend I’d lost touch with a couple years ago.

        By the way – only posting this (purposely vague) stuff because I bet Yglesias is enough of an ass he’ll need to read all the comments and I figure it might make him think twice about doing something like that again. Frightening how many people would actually obtain and act on an address in real life.

          • JoeMyGodNYC

            Shrug. Rand Paul wears a terrible, obvious wig. You don’t think that kind of male vanity (not to mention obliviousness) is worth commenting on regarding a potential presidential candidate. I understand.

          • FaithColeridge33

            I never said the commenting was wrong. Read my above post. It’s your claim that you don’t do. I believe if you are going to call people out on their hypocrisy you should start with yourself. I still wish you would answer my abortion question. None of my gay friends who are pro abortion will answer it either.

    This yahoo ends up on Twitchy quite often; do you think that’s by design? Maybe he’s hoping all of this exposure will garner him some more followers, or at least some name recognition. Or maybe he’s just an attention-starved little cretin who knows all he has to do is be a DB (which requires no effort; just needs to be himself!) and he’ll be spotlighted for the day.

    Ten minutes online research and I see Matty bought a $1.2m home in March. The condo he had was sold in April for just a smidge over $400k. I guess being part of the propaganda machine pays…

  • Mark81150

    I really hope this jerk doesn’t own a pet,… it’d be the most kicked in a fit of rage animal on the planet..

    Matty has always been a colossal prick. But isn’t everyone on the extreme Obama boot licking left? I suppose when you daily throw your self respect and any shred of personal honor out the window to support a cause so twisted, he has to find some way to express his inner screaming brat.
