    Every time I hear a complaint about how the main stream media is in his back pocket, I picture this guy:

    But you know it doesn't mean anything to show that they don't always go along with him. They're coming for you on this. :laugh:

    This is the kind of fact checking we usually have to get from all those "questionable" sources you find on the internet.

    WaPo is to be commended for actually doing their job, for a change.

    What's next? The Gruber tapes? Let me know when they run a front page story on that one.

    Here's what they had on their home page on November 11th:

    http://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs...-for-stupidity-of-the-american-voter-comment/


    Not front page news, but lead story on the opinion page.

    http://www.washingtonpost.com/opini...6514b2-6e72-11e4-893f-86bd390a3340_story.html


    Here's the story in the political section:

    So does this mean that all the main stream media is reporting this way or just the couple listed.

    Other than the use of the word flip flop there was nothing in the abc report that was critical in any way.

    Factcheck is not mainstream.

    Aww, you didn't have anything else so you changed the subject and pulled an old quote out from 2008? Really? I asked about the mainstream media, I said nothing about credible sources. It was a civil question.

    You say FactCheck is not mainstream. You say that FactCheck has close ties to Ayers and Obama. But when I show you that FactCheck is dissing Obama, rather than acknowledge that is an amazing, jaw dropping event, you start splitting hairs about whether they are mainstream or credible. Deflecting again. Why don't you just admit that the mainstream media isn't in Obama's corner on this issue?

    You pulled up a quote of mine from 2008 and now you have lied about me. I said nothing in this thread about anyone being credible and the quote you pulled up is more than 5 years old. You owe me an apology and you need to make a correction.

    Should be front page news. You and I both know it. Would be if...

    You and I both know that as well.

    Technically, no, you did not say anything in this thread about credible sources (and neither have I). But previously you have said FactCheck was not credible. But that's not the issue.

    And please tell me where I lied about you.

    Uh what? You are the one who interjected credible sources by digging up a 5 year old post as if it has any bearing on anything in this thread.

    Wait a minute you just said you did not say anything about credible sources and yet here you are again bringing it into this discussion irrelevantly I might add.

    Also, to use a quote that is more than five years old and simply make a reference to it as "previously" make a clear implication that it was recent. And it is not.

    And if it is not the issue then why do you keep bringing it up.

    To quote you:


    I did not say anything about them being credible in this thread or in any recent post.

    Here is a fact. You lied about me, got caught and tried to dig up a 5 year old post to cover your tracks. Maybe you need a time out to cool off.

    While you keep saying you did not say anything about them being credible, you're the one that keeps bringing up that fact that you haven't said anything about them being credible.

    That's not the sequence. I didn't 'try" to dig up a 5 year old post, I dug up a 5 year old post, and it wasn't to cover up my tracks, it was to expose your foolish denial that the MSM is all over Obama on the immigration edict. And I'll let the other readers decide if I lied about you.

    BTW, are you saying your opinion of FactCheck has changed since 2008? Are they now credible?


    Says the guy with 29,400 posts and the one getting all flustered!

    I'm waiting for you to acknowledge that I did not say it and that your accusation that I did is in complete error. That is a reasonable expectation.

    First, even if that is what I had done that 5 year old post is irrelevant and a childish attempt to cover your tracks.

    Also I never said that the MSM was not all over this issue. I asked a direct and civil question. So once again you have lied about me for the second time in this thread.

    Nope, they are not but what has changed is I no longer make the argument against another position as it is an adhominem.




    What does my post count have to do with this. Nothing more than a 5 year old post. I will leave you to your misery.

    You did not say that FactCheck was credible in this thread. Happy now?

    I will now defer to you to have the last word. I do know how important that is to you.
