(Thomas Mitchell) – The Las Vegas Sun published a story over the weekend about a man who claims he lured a right-wing blogger into printing his fabrication about how Harry Reid was really injured on New Year’s Eve — beaten up by his younger brother — “to show the lack of credibility and journalistic standards among partisan media figures.”
He told his story to Power Line blogger John Hinderaker.
Appearing in a photo on the cover of the Sun section of the morning paper almost wrapped in an American flag, Larry Pfeifer told the paper, “They had no problem using a story that had nothing but some guy’s word. … Not one of them knew my real name.”
But Hinderaker says he did get Pfeifer’s real name and the Sun did not contact him for his side of the story.
