   If you're going to troll Anderson Cooper on Twitter by criticizing the fairness of his Israeli/Palestinian conflict reporting, you might want to delete all those tweets about coconut flan before you do so

FTFA comments: "It really is like a new strain of moron or something that has the ability to completely ignore anything that runs contrary to their worldview. Like, it's RIGHT THERE IN THE TWEET SHE RESPONDED TO."

I had to read it three times to make sure I didn't miss something. He explicitly did what she was biatching about him not doing.

Forget following the news, that might be a strain. How about we start by reading the 23 words you're replying to.

He sounds kind of petty. He's a world famous reporter who make big bucks, meets important and powerful people and gets to travel the world. Maybe he should just let the flies buzz.

she was impugning his credibility, which is the most important thing he has vis-à-vis his career as a "world famous reporter." he was right to eviscerate her.

In my opinion, I think he's wasting his time replying to these people. It's not like the Queen of England tweeted him telling how much he sucked, or anything. These are random nobodies from the internet, and he's a successful, attractive, rich person. That should make for some decent internet armor.

More of a custard, also known as crème caramel. I think it's either French or Spanish in origin.

Flan, in Britain, is an open pastry or sponge case containing a sweet or savoury filling. A typical flan of this sort is round, with shortcrust pastry.
The British savoury flans may have diverged from the Spanish and French custard flans (also known as crème caramel) in the Middle Ages.

I would guess he enjoys the lulz like most people. Plus if you have a really good zing ready to go, don't you feel a duty to share it?

The tweet was he's not reporting on rockets coming from Gaza, when the actual tweet started "4 rockets just fired from near media center in #Gaza City."

Her response was "Why not talk about the rockets being fired FROM Gaza?!?"

I think he's more than in the right to tell her to fark off.

Coconut Flan chickie actually tweeted him several times before he replied, so while they didn't report that - as I actually follow AC on Twitter, I saw this. He actually told her that he had reported on the missiles coming from Gaza before these two tweets happened.

I think someone in the middle of a war-zone might be searching for a brief distraction and if this is what it takes to keep your sanity, I say good on you AC. He is willing to repeatedly go to the worst areas to ensure that the world is seeing what's really happening (Syria, Haiti, Long Island, Staten Island, etc.). I applaud his willingness to do this. Yes, there's something in it for him I suppose, but he seems to really want to ensure the real story gets out...

It's the Mexican version of a caramel custard, and it is f*cking delicious.

The Mexican cake you're thinking of is a tres leches, which like the name says, is made with evaporated milk, condensed milk, and cream.

So much deflection, and so much hate.

The tweet challenged him on the professionalism of his reporting. It was a legitimate challenge - one that you may or may not feel was deserved, but one that promoted accountability, was relevant to his job, and warranted a professional response.

Instead, Cooper's response was a personal attack that insinuated that if you happen to also have an interest in dessert, you cannot possibly an informed consumer of news and you should just STFU. Stay classy, sir.

While the responses were pretty damn funny, AC is one of them major trolls of "reporting". He does usually only report on the "poor" Palestinians, meanwhile right behind him they are launching rockets towards Israel. Pot calling the kettle black much?

No it was not a legitimate challenge--she did not even read what he'd written before firing off a missive about him failing at his job. Just 24 words and she still failed reading comprehension 101.

Tell you what, I'll come to where you're working, make a big stink in front of your co-workers and boss about how you're farking it up, then leave, self-satisfied, despite the fact that you were doing your job properly. And I bet you'll just STFU because you're pure class.

Can somebody summarize this? I tried to RTFA but when I got here ...

I'm of the opinion that if you're going to burn someone for being a lazy, stay-on-the-couch chip eater, Fritos is the chip of choice for inflicting maximum burn, because Fritos are just terrible.

... I stopped reading because I assumed this was written by a moron. Fritos are farking amazing.
