    Yet another story about the "no spin" guys making it up as they go along.


    Now, folks, you won't see this in the drive by media, at least not unless they start making up stories like Fox and the supermarket tabloids do.

    I find it interesting that when Fox news does something they should not and they of course do......... its thread worthy. But when all the other stations do it..... and they often do... anyone who talks about it has tin foil hats and you use your large vocabulary to repeat your usual lines for all those you dislike.

    Until the jaws of life are used to pull your disgusting head out of obamas almost as disgusting butt, there is little point in talking to you about anything.

    I did say in my post above that they should not, just like the other outlets should not.

    I just find it funny that its "news worthy" if its fox, and you are the first one to say tin foil hats if its any other :)

    Changing the number and footage from earlier in the week strikes me as an unremarkable instance of bias/attempt to mislead. And, insofar as they lied, they lied in a the opposite direction as the other networks tend to go in lock-step, so there's less indication of guilty thought, or indication of guilty thought to a lesser extent, and the consequences of the act are more limited.

    First off Pan PLC1 started a truthful thread and had every right to do so.

    Just as you are to start threads the way you see fit. Unlike some and their typical "rant a bash" thread this was a factual occurrence and factual occurrences are just that... factual occurrences.

    And while you can be upset about a "hand caught in the cookie jar" thread that you hate to see made even more public... I think you protest too much.

    And to end with this quote was really not called for.

    We here all care about America. And President Obama was elected by a large margin. To say everyone in the minority are the only one's with their heads on straight is factually incorrect (as this thread helps prove) and rather insulting when it really need not be. There are people that loved the Bush/Cheney approach and those who much prefer the Obama/Biden approach.

    In America that's what elections are for.;)

    Stewart plays a video with Bachman saying there were 20 - 45 thousand people. Then he reads a Washington Post story saying 10,000.

    But Stewart never said that Bachman was wrong or that the WP was right.

    So who was right and why were the other persons number wrong. I suspect that if Bachman is so clearly wrong that Stewart would have played it up a bit more.

    Who has the original clip from Hannity. Stewart only played a few seconds of it. I am not so sure we can trust one person on "comedy central" over another on an entertainment show about politics. I think they both spin things and so far we are looking at spin of spin.

    But suppose the entertainer Hannity did show one clip while talking about another similar event. Would that be worse than a group congressmen stealing our freedoms?
