MSNBC retracts false Palin story; others duped
NEW YORK ? MSNBC was the victim of a hoax when it reported that an adviser to John McCain had identified himself as the source of an embarrassing story about former vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin, the network said Wednesday.
Hey Steely, did you realize that, according to the news report you posted, the “hoax” was the name of the source…not the information, right? You also realize Fox news, not msnbc broke the story, right?
Absolutely (I’s kin akshually reed).
Just posted the story as published.
‘News’ is a farce especially with ‘anonymous’ sources. This story, in addition to others, are more gossip and hearsay than hard fact news.
For the record, I’m no fan of any of the MSM tv news broadcasts, FoxNews included.
If you knew that (kuz u kin aksully reed) then why did you say “wrong”? The article you posted had little to do with the content of the argument.
I’m glad you don’t like fox, etc, I don’t much like them either. But anonymous sources are pretty standard fair and normally accurate. If we didn’t have these types of leaks we’d lose a lot of news.
Now I think it’s pretty hard to believe that Palin really didn’t know some of this stuff…it’s definitely eye-poppingly shocking. Lets hope these were slander and McCain wasn’t really putting the country at that level of risk. But if you’re going to say “wrong” you should probably list an article that actually backs that argument up, not one that has nothing to do with it (or is only tangential to it)
