And now, as an International man of mystery, I find that the famed German magazine Der Spiegel has quoted me making fun of one of their competitors, Bild newspaper.
In my July 25th piece on the “gushingly immature” Bild newspaper reporter that had a workout with Barack Obama, I lambasted the German daily for acting like a “rock-star struck teeny bopper” instead of a serious, adult reporter.
Well, now Der Spiegel, one of the largest selling German language magazines in the world, ran a story today reporting that Barack Obama is claiming he was “hustled” by the Bild reporter. In the Spiegel report, my July 25th piece is quoted and I am referenced by name.
The translated Bild report was rapidly picked up by US blogs, where it became the subject of endless derision.
Blogger Warner Todd Huston wrote: “Apparently, Bild, a newspaper in Germany, hires 14-year-old, starry-eyed, fan-girls as reporters instead of serious grown-ups. Or, at least one would be excused in thinking this reporter was a rock-star struck teeny bopper upon reading her gushingly immature account of having an exercise workout with Barack Obama on the German leg of his trip.”
Bonesky is actually 27. “Let’s enjoy her sexytime memories, together,” the Washington blog Wonkette said, recalling the encounter in a wooden translation of the Bild report that evokes fictional reporter Borat in his comedy “Cultural Learnings of America for Make Benefit Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan.”
So, me and the Wonkette are heard ’round the world.
This is so much fun!
