When You're In A Hole, Stop Digging


The Cully Stimson rehabilitation project--which evidently requires trafficking in idle speculation that the lawyers representing Gitmo detainees are getting paid with dirty money--continues apace over at The Corner. Here's Cliff May, responding to Corner-ite Jonathan Adler (who's done an admirable job rebutting some of this lunacy):

[P]erhaps the reason you have seen only innuendo regarding the various law firms at Gitmo derives from the fact that the MSM is highly selective about which issues are worth investigating.

Isn't this the basic argument nutty conspiracy theorists make? That the only reason we've seen "innuendo"--as opposed to hard news stories--about UFO crash sites or alien life forms is because the press hasn't bothered to investigate them?
