AMBASSADOR RICHARD GRENELL IS CALLING OUT DER SPIEGEL FOR ITS ANTI-AMERICAN BIAS, FAKE NEWS. Der Spiegel, anti-American? I just can’t see it myself:

UPDATE (FROM GLENN): A German media critic weighs in: “Mr. Relotius is perhaps just the most overt of Spiegel liars, caught and sacked for being too brazen in his journalistic malpractice. But make no mistake: The lies of omission, spin and bias that have tainted Der Spiegel and Spiegel Online for decades continue unabated on an industrial scale. Some things never change…”

And, in case you missed it yesterday, another link to James Lileks’ epic post-9/11 takedown of a Guardian reporter’s Olive Garden spelunking. Remember, they’ve already written the story before their plane lands.

ANOTHER UPDATE (FROM GLENN): From the comments: “I went back and read the Olive Garden screed, for the n’th time. I believe that it is the greatest example of American humorous invective since Mark Twain’s Fenimore Cooper’s Literary Offences.”

I agree.
