[U X2] Guilty! 3 of 8: A Quiz For MSM Journalists (And Our Audience Alike) To Pass The Time — Courtesy Of Billy The Kid!

UPDATE: Emily Saul just reported by tweet, that the jury got started almost a half hour earlier than normal, even with rain delaying other commuters. I think that means they want to wrap up by end of day, for certain. They stayed late both two days ago, and yesterday — by about 20 minutes each. Now they are in early on a Friday morning. Seems like today will be the day. [End update.]

First, an aside: As irony would have it, exactly 30 years ago this morning, on August 4, 1987 — under pressure from then President Ronald Reagan, the FCC rescinded the so-called “fairness doctrine“. It would have been futile to resist, as the President clearly could change that policy by simple executive order (afterย Red Lion Broadcasting Co. v. FCC, a 1969 US Supreme Court decision). But I digress. As a result, we here aren’t (and the formally FCC-licensed media) is no longer required (consistent with amendment, first) to present any controversial issue, or series of events in a fair and balanced manner, ever since.

So — with all of that in mind, Billy has burned the midnight oil, andย graciously created a quizย (that’s a two page PDF file) for Meg Tirrell, Matt Herper, Emily Saul and any and all the others waiting it out, in the media room, in Brooklyn — or in other locations. Click the link to download it — I may quickly turn it into a fillable online form in the right margin later this morning.

We are deeply indebted to Mr. The Kid’s… humor and… dare I say it?… genius! [And we appreciate the fair use of the erstwhile courtroom sketch artist’s work, as it appears (derivatively) as a small portion of the public domain image, at right.]

Here’s to hoping it brings us a verdict, later today.

      Nope. He’s going to the clink.

      [And I see thee at noon-ish, and 3:24 PM — facing southward, and smiling fondly… hey you.]

    If today is today, my theory is correct. The jurors wanted to stretch out the week because some of them likely have *stressful jobs* I say to the jurors, you guys deserve the whole week even if most of you were likely saying “When do we get to nail this SOB? ” ๐Ÿ™‚ Now let’s end this with making Brafman angry. ๐Ÿ™‚

      I’ll buy Ben another bag of Ruffles, to help him get over the loss…

      [And… I see you — grinning — at 11:16, just now…. fondly, as ever.]


      • FTD says:

        We should send him a Ruffles bag. We should send the whole defense team sham agreements that look similar to Marty in the Condor Namaste Fund. Billy, can you make agreements too? ๐Ÿ™‚

    Actually — it would be wonderful (and ironic!) if some of the male MSM journalists (who are confident in their own sexuality)… started “hitting on him” — by trolling the new twitter handle… turnabout is fair play.

    Put him on the defensive, for a change… but I guess the best answer is to simply not engage with his middle school nonsense.



  3. condor says:

    And — I won’t link to it, but the new Martin Twitter account is (to no real effect) trying to sexually harass the female reporters INSIDE the court building this morning… YAWN… he is nothing… if not childishly predictable.

    See Emily Saul’s tweets this morning. What a… loser he is.

    “Gimme dat GUILTY verdict!”

      Notice he’s not tagging them by their Twitter accounts. So I guess TECHNICALLY he’s not interacting with the media, while in the courthouse. What a weasel. Hope the jury puts a hard stop to this soon.

        Yup! He just wrote: “I will spit bars after the verdict. Believe this.” [That’s a rappers’ reference to earning tons of cash.]

        I would revise it, thus: “He will rest his dainty little hands on steel bars — and stare, numbly… out into the common areas — clad in orange… after the verdict. Believe this!”

    I’m not sure I’d pass billy’s test. But “ouch,” for putting journalist in quotation marks for question 35. Also you might want to check the wording of question 36, unless I’m mis-reading it. Do you mean: What’s the name of the journalist who got Marty banned from Twitter?
