They checked the accuracy of factual assertions made in a book. This is a bad thing? From a book Rush called a substantive policy document?

the 11 reporters for Palin's book to the 0 for Obama's books is the problem..nice try though...

Norm said...

Obama's books received no media attention at all. You're right......

Poor Palin couldn't make shit up! No fair!

Norm said...

Not to mention the fact that Obama's books and Palin's are completely different in style and in content. Obama's books were autobiographical and set out a policy vision. He did not defend a tenure in public office nor did he have a score to settle in the aftermath of a failed campaign.

There are more GOP fact checkers crying foul than AP reporters. And they're the ones claiming she's making a lot of stuff up. Have you nothing to say about them? Is Nicole Wallace no better than the MSM?

Hmmm. Book gets released on Monday. 400 plus pages.

Do I assign one person to read the entire book and fact check it over the course of a week or two?

Or do I split the assignment among 11 people and maybe get the job done by Tuesday afternoon.

Tough choice, but I think I'll go for option 2.

Why would I be kidding?

Abraham Lincoln was killed for promoting equality of the races. Teddy Roosevelt, a progressive, was shot giving a speech. The Kennedys, progressives were killed. Martin Luther King was killed. Right wingers killed hundreds in a protest against the government in OKC. The abortion doctors get killed by right wingers. Plenty of proof that right wingers are sore losers and killers.

Not really but my point is one can pick out things that make things appear any way you decide to see them.
I have spent my lifetime in media and have received the wrath and lost work because of being a liberal. You couldn't convince me in a million years that the media is liberal because I have a lifetime of personal experience to prove otherwise.

Even the so called liberal media(olberman etc) discuss things from the right wing frame. IE, not why we should not go to war but arguing against why we should. Not why we should have health insurance but arguing against why we shouldn't...and the list goes on. One thing you guys are good at is putting people on the defensive. Especially with people who really would rather not fight.

Game I am truly interested in hearing your views on education. I am certain you have perspective on it that I don't have.
When it comes to media bias you are just a sheeple that clearly knows not of what you speak.

Don't confuse him with facts...his mind is made up!

Actually my point is I have the facts through personal experience. The fact that your mind is made up and you are mirroring the opinion I have in your own certitude is what you miss. Nice try. Actually it was lame but I'm feeling generous today.
