Reading is hard. Especially when you’re a liberal who’s hell-bent on smearing an articulate, unapologetic conservative. When Clara Jeffery saw this headline:

Screen Shot 2013-03-11 at 2.57.45 PM

She tweeted out to her followers that Adam Baldwin is a tax delinquent. Never mind that Adam and Stephen are not, in fact, the same person, much less related. She had garbage to spew and, darn it, she wasn’t about to let facts get in the way! Or let them stop her from calling him a “psuedo-celebrity [sic] sexist gun troll”:

In which @motherjones “co-editor” @clarajeffery commits libel against me: twitter.com/adamsbaldwin/s…

— Adam Baldwin (@adamsbaldwin) March 11, 2013

Really, Clara?

Hi @clarajeffery: Please apologize for and retract your libel.

— Adam Baldwin (@adamsbaldwin) March 11, 2013

No dice. She eventually deleted her tweet, but she didn’t apologize for her lies — or her idiocy. In fact, she doubled down on the sliminess:

My apologies to Stephen Baldwin, who plead guilty to tax evasion nyack.patch.com/articles/steph…, is not troll @adamsbalwin.

— Clara Jeffery (@ClaraJeffery) March 11, 2013

Pathetic. Then again, what else could you expect from a lefty journo-tool like Jeffery?

@adamsbaldwin @clarajeffery @motherjones Gee, this doesn’t perpetuate the stereotype that liberals have no personal accountability. Nope!

@clarajefferyWow, your lack of ethics just astounds me.I guess moral high ground only applies to people who agree w you? @adamsbaldwin

Classless & beneath an editor MT @clarajeffery My apologies to Stephen Baldwin, who plead guilty to tax evasion is not troll @adamsbaldwin

No kidding. Baldwin rightfully gave Jeffery the business:

#ClaraJefferyPitches: “Ignorance is Strength!: (So what if that’s plagiarism)?” ~ @clarajeffery @motherjones

— Adam Baldwin (@adamsbaldwin) March 11, 2013

#ClaraJefferyPitches: “It’s Not My Fault I Can’t Read!: I work for @motherjones.”

— Adam Baldwin (@adamsbaldwin) March 11, 2013

#ClaraJefferyPitches: “I May Be @motherjones‘ Current Co-Editor, But Now I Am Also A Victim Of My Own Malicious Ego: Have Empathy!”

— Adam Baldwin (@adamsbaldwin) March 11, 2013

#ClaraJefferyPitches: “My Memory Hole.”

— Adam Baldwin (@adamsbaldwin) March 11, 2013

Confirmed: @clarajeffery is a shameless, libelous hack. ~ #WhatsLeftToPonder, @motherjones?

— Adam Baldwin (@adamsbaldwin) March 11, 2013

What a nasty piece of work.

Update:

Ace points out Jeffery’s — and the Left’s — stunning hypocrisy when it comes to journalistic integrity:

@adamsbaldwin @michellemalkin They’re gleeful if anyone on the right errs… when they do, they’re so very forgiving of themselves

— DepressiveBlogger69 (@AceofSpadesHQ) March 11, 2013

@adamsbaldwin @michellemalkin it’s an understandable error, “Steven” is so close to “Adam”

— DepressiveBlogger69 (@AceofSpadesHQ) March 11, 2013

@adamsbaldwin @michellemalkin I mean they’re both iambs. Virtually indistinguishable.

— DepressiveBlogger69 (@AceofSpadesHQ) March 11, 2013

@adamsbaldwin @michellemalkin or trochys. Or whatever. I don’t know what I’m talking about.

— DepressiveBlogger69 (@AceofSpadesHQ) March 11, 2013

agree or disagree, @clarajeffery: Intellectually honest people admit their errors and do not seek to cover them up.

— DepressiveBlogger69 (@AceofSpadesHQ) March 11, 2013

Evidently, intellectual honesty just isn’t all that important to Jeffery.

Update:

Jeffery has tweeted another faux-pology:

Yes, @adamsbaldwin this is a reason I consider you a troll. bit.ly/10F3fzC I do again apologize for confusing you & brother re taxes

— Clara Jeffery (@ClaraJeffery) March 11, 2013

She feels she’s earned the right to be outraged because of this:

Thing is, Baldwin never called her that.

No, @clarajeffery: Do your homework and find the origin & irony of that pic re: your threat. What has happened to feminism’s strength?

— Adam Baldwin (@adamsbaldwin) February 9, 2013

@aceofspadeshq It’s Lib meme. @clarajeffery was incompetent of that fact. ~ @davidlimbaugh @michellemalkin

— Adam Baldwin (@adamsbaldwin) March 11, 2013

A bit of background on that meme here.

@adamsbaldwin @davidlimbaugh @michellemalkin @clarajeffery i don’t see that as calling her a c**t.I assume you don’t either.

— DepressiveBlogger69 (@AceofSpadesHQ) March 11, 2013

Oh well. Jeffery’s got no time for the pesky truth.

@adamsbaldwin @davidlimbaugh @michellemalkin @clarajeffery A lot of people consider it the highlight of their day to be Offended.

— DepressiveBlogger69 (@AceofSpadesHQ) March 11, 2013

Leftist tools like Jeffery live for it.
