Passion = Truth? How Jeffrey James Francis Ircink Sees The World? I love when people are passionate about something. That surging of emotion is the one honest measure of what truth is. It's a truthful display of how a person really feels about something or someone at that particular moment. That passion IS truth.

About me...

Ex-producer of THE REALLY FUNNY HORNY GOAT INTERNATIONAL SHORT FILM FESTIVAL, playwright, actor, singer, outdoorsman, blogger, amateur photog, observer & bitcher, Beach Boys groupie, Brett Favre fanatic, lover of everything Celtic and forever a member in the Tribe of HAIR. Spent most of my life in the Village of Waterford, a small town just outside of the Milwaukee suburbs. After 12 years in North Hollywood, Bel Air and Culver City, Cali, I moved back to Wisconsin in September 2009. No regrets - of moving to LA OR moving back to WI. Have traveled to Belfast, Ireland, Dayton (OH), Manhattan, Seattle, Cedar Rapids, New York, Miami and Sydney, Australia with my plays. Moved back into the Village of Greendale where I was born. Life is good.

Definition of "HEARSAY".

(From Merriam Webster online) "hearsay evidence": evidence based not on a witness's personal knowledge but on another's statement not made under oath. columnist Jay Glazer's article on Brett Favre contained information that wasn't sourced to Jay himself, but by unnamed sources. Brett Favre's account of the same information in Jay's article comes from Brett himself.

This means Jay's article is based on hearsay, which is inadmissible in any court of law. Therefore, it's a piece of shit article and Jay Glazer is a piece of shit, yellow journalist.

FYI: Here's the Wikipedia definition of "yellow journalism". The definition includes such words as, "exaggerations of news events", "scandal-mongering", "sensationalism", (i.e. "VIDEO: Watch Favre's Denial!" or "Read the Story that got the Controversy Started!"), or "unprofessional practices by news media organizations or journalists" and "heavy reliance on unnamed sources".
