On ‘Economic Terrorism’: It Pays To Under-React

The blogosphere seems to be catching fire concerning Stephen Lerner at Pace University. It sounds like really ‘spooky dude’ stuff. Combined with JounoList, it makes conspiracy theories about the 2008 economic cratering seem tempting.
I’m wondering when the counter-sting will occur. With the Left reeling from Beck/Breitbart/O’Keefe, one of the things I’d expect, if the Vast Left Wing Conspiracy is as virulent as it seems, is some kind of red-herring event. Try to entice the usual suspects into an event, and go way over the top. Then discredit the new-media journalists when they try to break the story. Use the one screw-up to discredit the rest of their work.
In the blogs, we sure dig linking everything, but kicking the tires on the story is a good test. If the wheels come off, much crow-eating is avoided.
