Updated! Snarky 6-The Daily Caller Is Right-I Took The Money And Stuff

Posted on August 24th, 2010 by Fingers Malloy

The Daily Caller came out with a hit piece on bloggers yesterday and made some outrageous claims. The one money quote that got most of the Internets fired up was;

“It’s standard operating procedure” to pay bloggers for favorable coverage, says one Republican campaign operative. A GOP blogger-for-hire estimates that “at least half the bloggers that are out there” on the Republican side “are getting remuneration in some way beyond ad sales.”


I call bullshit.

There were many good responses to this Daily Caller article from;

Dan Riehl

R. Stacy McCain

Jimmie Bise

Melissa Clouthier

Look I am not going to pretend that I draw the type of numbers on this site that the big boys (and girls) see on their blogs. Nobody would be throwing big money at me to do anything (except maybe to go away).

For the record, I nor anyone at FTR Radio got a dime in exchange for our support for Pamela Gorman–but thanks to this Daily Caller piece, it raises an unnecessary cloud of suspicion on any blogger that shows enthusiastic support for any candidate in a particular race. Thanks Tucker! (asshat)

Anyone that has done this blogging thing for a while realizes that you aren’t doing it for the money. I can see why Republicans would want help from bloggers–but in a lot of ways they still treat new media like a teenager holding an infant for the first time–awkwardly (yes they are getting better).

But here is the bad news.

Alas, I must confess that I have taken compensation for writing  positive pieces for candidates and causes. Here are 6 examples of how I sold myself–and you out for not a whole helluva lot in return.*

1- In 2008, the McCain for President PAC game me half a carton of Lucky Strikes to write a post entitled John McCain is the Shizzle Dizzle.

2- In 1988 I wrote that Michael Dukakis looked great in a tank for my school newspaper. I did it because Susan Estrich offered to give me a back rub (Cut me some slack , I was 16).

3- Last year, I was given a case of Yoo-Hoo to throw my support behind a ballot proposal in Texas to ban I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter.

4- In exchange for writing a blog post stating that he was “totally sane”, Ron Paul gave me three coins from his pot of gold.

5- For years, Governor Palin has sent me hush money over an incident between the 2 of us in the Poconos that I would love to tell you about–but there is a reason why they call it hush money. 

6- The Daily Caller sucks. That was a freebie…

*Warning, this list of 6 may be a load of crap. Don’t believe everything you read…

UPDATE!- Shock and outrage has been voiced throughout the Internets today by the revelation that I am a two-bit whore for any politician that is willing to throw 30 cents at me.

From Robert Stacy McCain-Embattled Blogger Rejects Growing Pressure to Resign.

To Mr. McCain I say this; Americans want to know that their Fingers Malloy is not a crook. Well, I am not a crook.

But after 15 minutes of soul searching and consultation with a Priest, an Imam, Linda Lavin, Bonnie Franklin, the 1987 Boston Celtics, Kathy Griffin and Boutros Boutros-Ghali, I have decided to maybe resign from my post at The Snark Factor. I have found a home for my writing that will give me even less exposure than

I just took a job at The Huffington Post…
