Damn Lumpy, you just managed to discredit Chuck’s two main sources of news in one simple post!

Lumpy,

You mean people lie to hurt the candidate that they don’t like? Wow! Are you this upset when the lies are told about President Bush?

Politics is a dirty business…

The difference is that I complain about shady sources who blatantly lie, like NewsMax and David Bossie.

Whereas my counterparts complain about legitrimate news sources like the NY Times, the LA Times, and the Boston Globe.

We can argue over whether the legitimate media is biased. However, groups like NewsMax are not considered legitimate.

For example NewsMax claimed that Hillary Clinton ran a secret militia out of the White House, and that Bill Clinton was a drug dealer and that he had people murdered.

David Bossie made a living selling rumors and dirt on Whitewater, he claimed that Bill Clinton had his childhood friend Vince Foster murdered, and he edited and doctored taped conversations between Clinton and Gennifer Flowers for an “800” number scheme to smear Clinton.

Lets differentiate between people who blatatntly lie, and legitimate news sources, even if it’s your contention that news sources are biased. (By the way, you think the mass media is biased to the left, while I think they are biased to the right).

Lumpy -

Didn’t the NYT have to fire one of their ‘reporters’ for making shit up a year or two ago?

The WaPo has had at least one of their writers busted for making shit up,If I’m not mistaken, the writer in question won a pulitzer prize for the very story she fabricated.

You are quite fond of quoting sources that are little more than radical left-wing conspiracy wonks.

Quit being a hypocrite.

Could’nt have said it better myself rainjack.

Lumpy,

You think most of the media is biased to the right? Wow!

CNN-CBS-NBC- and ABC to name just four television networks have been pumping up John Kerry and hammering Bush. Everyone knows this…everyone except you.
