I'm not even going to try to summarize. Or even copy and paste sections. Kevin Drum at Mother Jones nails it, starting from the headline:
The standards of most institutional right wing journalism are just so appallingly bad that their stories simply aren't credible. (I'd note that Lake works at either nonpartisan or slightly-progressive leaning pub.) Of course there are exceptions like the Menendez phony escort story. Which, wait, that ended up being a hoax enabled by appalling shoddy reporting standards. Again, if you wonder why conservative scandal mongers can't have nice things … look at the conservative media.
Also, try finding real scandals.
