The Outhouse is continuing its feud with the Beat!
Source: ThanosCopter Newswire
Yesterday, Rob Liefeld had some stern words for "internet journos", whom he felt weren't doing their due diligence on the recent Gail Simone debacle.
So more than 24 hours later and no one is asking WHY Gail Simone was let go? Seriously? A best selling writer? #findyourballsinternetjournos— robertliefeld (@robertliefeld) December 11, 2012
Honestly, Rob Liefeld is right. It's been like 48 hours since we've learned about Gail Simone's dismissal from Batgirl. Surely that's enough time to get one of the fifteen or so people to roll over on their NDA and spill the beans on the most salicious split since...well since Rob Liefeld quit DC a few months ago.
The Outhouse is growing anxious. We want some site to break open this story so that we can rehash it in a paraphrased article and give us the couple hundred hits we need to keep the site up and running. So, in the spirit of Liefeld's tweet, we've decided to call out the biggest "internet journo" we know.
Heidi MacDonald, find your balls! We want a juicy Gail Simone scoop! Why aren't you roughing up your sources, bribing minor officials or breaking mail room intern's fingers in your quest for the truth?
Listen, Heidi (can we call you Heidi?) we know that the Beat has dozens of resources that a humble satire site like the Outhouse can't afford, like working phones, a fax machine or respect from the rest of the comic book industry. It's comes with the territory of being one of the best comic book websites around. So why is it you can't use your "internets" or your "facsimile machine" and bring the entire house of cards crumbling on DC? Damnit, Heidi, it's been 48 hours!
Now you may be saying, "Wait a minute, Outhouse, isn't Heidi MacDonald a woman? Wouldn't she not have balls to find?" Our response: If Rob Liefeld doesn't give a shit about anatomy, why should we? Besides, that Steve Morris fellow that writes for the Beat seems to have enough balls for the both of them!
In conclusion, we here at the Outhouse are calling the Beat out and encouraging them to do their jobs. We have articles to write, and we can't do that without something to write about.
This article is an official continuation of the fearsome Outhouse-Beat feud. Past articles can be found here.
