Huffpo Red in the Face Over Fox News Hoax

Huffpo had posted what appeared to be a video of Fox News's John Gibson jokingly referring to Attorney General Eric Holder as a monkey with a "bright blue scrotum." That last bit is a reference to an unrelated news story about a Debrazza monkey that escaped from a zoo in Seattle.

Obviously, likening the first black attorney general to a monkey would be a provocative move at anytime, but it would be particularly inflammatory this week after the New York Post -- like Fox News, a unit of News Corp. -- incited outrage with a cartoon of a chimpanzee that some read as a racist slap at Barack Obama.

It didn't happen, though. Huffpo now says the video of Gibson was doctored.




Who would have thought someone like the Huffington Post would post news articles they hadn't confirmed were true?

At least they corrected themselves though.

Not being a regular to Huffington post because of the liberal slant I don't know this - is correcting themselves something they do on a regular basis when they find out something they reported is wrong? If so, then that's good. It's the honorable thing to do and worthy of some respect.

I think you might need to go back and review the definition of a "lie" again.

No need to review.

They were just using the same definition previously used for a Bush "lie".

Oh you mean like when they said they didn't authorize the use of water boarding, and then it came out that they specifically stated to do it?

That's a lie.

Mistaking something as legit when it is not is not a lie, it's is a mistake. And apologizing for that mistake is the right thing to do.

*Edit for sources:

White House denies Cheney endorsed 'water boarding'

Bush administration gave nod for CIA waterboarding: report

See the difference between a lie and a mistake yet?

It might help you to note that lies like this ARE why Bush received such harsh criticism. It wasn't as cynical as the criticism against Obama today.

No, I'm talking about how making a decision based on faulty intelligence from trusted sources was turned by the dems into a "lie" that was repeated so many many times that even school children were mindlessly parroting what their (dem) parents were also mindlessly parroting.

Irish Mick want a cracker?
