Hack Attack

The worst sports columnist in Alabama is Josh Moon; his columns are filled with half-truths, distortions, and non sequiturs. But despite his platitudinous BS, and serial smears, Moon crossed the line with his Saturday column. Not only did he use the firecoachnicksaban website, but he had the audacity to call other members of the media hacks.

Pot. Kettle. Kettle. Pot.

A few ways Moon’s column offends:
First, Take this Web site, for example. It probably wasn’t started by an Alabama fan, but it’s easy to believe, given past incidents, that it was. We already reported it was created by a Tennessee native, who was attempting to poke fun at a friend who was an Alabama fan. Of course, Moon wants to believe Alabama fans would create the website. The creator of the site said his intention wasn’t to smear Alabama fans, but in the end, it is just what the site did—it gave this lummox a chance to write about it in his column. The most troubling thing is how a Gannett newspaper continues to employ this guy. The Montgomery Advertiser should follow in the steps of its Opelousas newspaper and get rid of this idiot sports writer before he destroys whatever credibility this newspaper once had.

Second, I’ve heard the criticism of Saban since his comments. Things like, he should be thankful to have such devoted fans or that his assistants are making buckets of cash and should expect to be questioned every now and then. One is forced to wonder where Moon heard these comments. Certainly not from Alabama fans. I haven’t heard one Alabama fan speak in favor of bothering coaches or throwing things. This is just another of Moon’s distortions. Of course, maybe he really did hear those things. They make medication to keep you from hearing voices that aren’t there. You might want to have that checked out there buddy.

Third, Out of all the good, talented reporters out there, the faces of our industry most of the time are the hacks at Fox News and Stuart Scott. Basically, the personification of news bias and a guy screaming “boo-yah.” ROFLMAO. What a freaking idiot. Fox News, while biased, is far less biased than this jackass. What Moon and other hubristic “journalists” fail to see is the beam in their own eye. Moon is biased. You can read it in every column. I’m not a journalist, but I can admit I’m biased. However, I like TRUTH more than fiction. Unfortunately, Moon and most journalists never met a truth they couldn’t turn into fiction when writing their stories or commentary.

Who is the hack? Not Fox News when compared to this guy.

    Once again Josh never lets the facts get in the way of a good story. What do you expect..if he was any good as a reporter or as a writer he would work somewhere other than a USA Today with a local name printed on it and sold as a local paper.

    Don’t get your knickers in a twist junior. Saban is just getting the tip of the knife stuck in him now. After the way he has treated the media, just wait until he loses a few more. Hacks? Ha! Wait till the sharks come out. Old Nicky will look like a porcupine!

    Actually, unfortunately, some comments have been posted at the tidesports.com forum that were worse than the excerpt you quote from Moon’s article. While not necessarily posted by UA fans, they were also not limited to the black void between Moon’s ears.

    Justin Moon is the stupidest sportwriter ever. He sounds like a 12 year old Auburn fan.

    What was the point of his column? Is he trying to say that CNS will quit because some drunk frat boys threw cups at UGA players (who were taunting the student section)and some fans called an assistant to complain about a loss?

    Ridiculous. Barner Mooon should worry more about media friendly Tubby bolting to TAMU. If he leaves no more Co-SEC Western Division or Peoples National Championships for the Teagles.

    Theres no mention of the Barn fans spitting on Brandon Cox after the MSU loss. Stay classy Barners
