But then CJR posted the best Weiner headlines, which includes this headline from Gawker:

And I caved. Because I may never stop laughing.

My view of this is: I wouldn't believe anything Breitbart promoted if he told me water was wet. The only person who saw the tweet is a known conservative activist who has been obsessed with Weiner for months, who has been harassing the recipient of the tweet since before it was sent, and who was tweeting about a potential sex scandal involving Weiner for weeks. And now, there's this whole thing, in which the guy indicates "we" have more pictures. And there's Weiner's bizarre media performance, in which he says he didn't send the tweet but can't deny that it's a picture of him. Put it all together, and it spells that the photo is legit, but Weiner didn't send it - his own stash of personal lewd photos was hacked by someone else. And frankly, if he's not sending them unsolicited to random twitter followers, I don't give a damn what he keeps on his phone for his own enjoyment.

And now I really will stop posting about this, at least until there's some sort of definitive conclusion.

Yeah, I do find the handling weird. But I'm DEFINITELY not a media strategist, and for good reason.
