I happened to catch this little gem by accident and missed the very beginning of it, but this is rich. Here are Mr. Gannon/Guckert's own words from the video when asked about the male escort scandal:

Well, there's not much to say about that. You know it, after two and a half years, there's nothing to it. I mean there's a lot of, of rumor and Internet gossip and you know "responsible journalists" payed some attention to that in the beginning and afterwards they decided there's nothing there. So.

So what Mr. Gannon? So those screen shots of your web site before they took it down were Photoshopped or you really didn't go into the White House how many hundreds of times without signing out so anyone would know when you left, and you really weren't a gay hooker asking softball questions to Scotty-boy? He's going on a tour of college campuses to promote the book. Oh joy! We can only hope he gets treated as warmly as Gonzo.
