Yes it seems that the "story" was altered a bit to make it seem worse than it is. Clearly everyone knew this is what the report would eventually
find but it seems that the story was a bit misleading. Having said that. Anyone who uses mediamatters.org to "fact check" a story has no right to
attack others for not fact checking their stories. I mean seriously...mediamatters is as "left" as they come. If you don't believe all the
"right" sites because of their bias, then by that same principle, there's no way you can believe mediamatters.org either. They are the "MSNBC" of
If you would bother to click the "debunked" link a few posts up, you'll see that the group who originally "broke" the story (Fox News) won't
even stand behind it, as the details have been shown to be completely false.
While I personally find it annoying when people trash a source without even looking at it, I sincerely hope your post satiated your need for blind
hatred and ignorance for the day.
Apparently, just because the LEFTY sites, say things that are proven true over time, and the Right wing sites, say a bunch of bogus crap that helps
some Robber Baron, or finds an excuse to put people at each other's throats --well, it's just BIAS!
Fox News goes on a screaming tantrum about ACORN. Their "crack reporter" pretends to be a pimp on camera, but in front of the ACORN councilor,
pretends to be the boyfriend of the lady who is afraid of reprisals. The entire story was debunked. Then these same "crack reporters" team up with a
guy who's been training with the CIA and break into a Senator's office pretending to be the phone company and wiretap the place.
The Tea Baggers are whole cloth created and planned as a Republican fund-raising operation a year and a half before they get wall-to-wall coverage by
Fox. Sarah Palin and Sean Hannity then get over $200,000 a trip in speaker fees and spend 90% of their charity proceeds "allegedly" on "mailing"
in the internet age.
>> Oh, it's all so equivalent, because on the Left, we have Al Gore writing books and donating the proceeds, and Michael Moore makes a profit telling
you about fast food, Wall Street Robber Barons, the Iraq War and other things that help the working man -- and THEIR left wing propaganda proves to be
right -- and I've yet to see any principle points they've made proven to be lies or misinformed.
It's not that I listen to Left-Wing sites because I just want to be spoon fed some Commie propaganda -- it's because they do their best to tell the
truth, and the Right-Wing sites are usually full of crap and selling you religion, war, or that some corporation has a right to save money by letting
coal miners die. I mean, for every damn polluter, crook, or mercenary caught committing a crime, there seems to be an advocate.
Fox News gets money from companies that benefit from expensive health care, and they doctor up a hit piece or "accidentally" push a story that fits
their agenda and whisper the retraction -- it's "all good" because maybe that outrage tomorrow about Nancy Pelosi will actually be true. Or maybe
it won't. But we all know -- that Obamacare WILL be worse than we can imagine -- only, we don't have any real facts to back that up, and we've got
no track record of Republicans making anything cheaper or bette for the American public.
>> The thing Fox News is MOST worried about, is if Obamacare is successful.
