The curse of the Charles Johnsons

Charles C Johnson fell for a spoof last January. How's he been doing since then?

This year, just trawling Google, I find Johnson failed to prove that Michael Brown was a killer. (Brown was no angel, and was lawfully killed in self-defence, but... he didn't do THAT.) Then he screwed the pooch again and hailed a viral photo for the "Jackie" rape-hoaxer.

I understand that there are times where you rally around your own when they make a goof. I also understand the principle of "I cannot spare this man, he fights".

But Johnson doesn't claim to be an opinion leader; he claims to be a journalist. He claims to be playing in the realm of fact. Johnson simply doesn't take enough care over his work.
