The more you lie the less credibility you have.

That's not an enomously complex finding.

So there's a difference between news and farking chickens?

FTFA: And Fox is the experienced TV muckraker, having gamely tried to tag the Obama administration with a series of supposed scandals such as Solyndra, Operation Fast and Furious, and the IRS auditing episode, often prioritizing such stories when more traditional outlets put them on the back burner...Fox's credibility is shot precisely because of itsbreathlessly deeming multiple pseudo-scandals as "Worse Than Watergate."

It's not just about infroming....

Well, sure, but if Hillary was involved in any real scandals, like Benghazi, then she'd be toast for the nomination.

Are there that many bad spellers in the world? I can understand words that you may not use or read everyday, or those words that have weird spelling rules, but simple words like informed I don't understand. And didn't they have a friend that saw the sign and said "That's spelled wrong"? Or is it that their whole circle are bad spellers?

Let it not be forgotten for those who DRTFA, when there finally was a Democrat scandal, Wienerghazi, MSNBC was just as hard on the Wiener as FOX was.

Can -ghazi be the suffix to every scandal now? -gate is getting old

Because it was worse than Watergate, that's why.

FTFA: As a result, Fox has created itself a sizeable audience, but drowns it in a swamp of fever dreams and cuts it off from the reality-based community.

I believe they mean to say "liebruls", here.
 
2014-02-17 03:06:43 PM  
Some of us can tell the difference. There are still some out there that cannot because they just parrot talking points from Fox "News" and Limbaugh.

Yes. Do your patriotic duty to our lexicon and just do it. I know I've done it even in this thread.

And it was unlawful.  Out of control Executive.  Emboldening our enemies.  I could go on, but it's kind of pointless.  Libs just don't respond to reason.

The sad truth is that Fox is in a great position even if their audience dwindled to a fraction of other news sources.  Sucker-Americans are worth a fortune to advertisers, and Fox News does a fantastic job of slicing them out of the herd.

doyner: Doktor_Zhivago: Can -ghazi be the suffix to every scandal now? -gate is getting old

I think you are correct on that. Something felt not right about Wienerghazi because it was legitimate. So, back to Wienergate.

I prefer going with a forgotten classic, and referring to every scandal with the suffix "-pot Dome".

Oh, by the by, do you politically-minded farkers know when and how the phrase "Worse than Watergate" really got moving (recently, anyway)? The title of a 2004 book by John Dean about George W Bush's ascendance to the presidency and mismanagement of the country once he got there.

John Dean, who was Nixon's WH counsel - so he might know a thing or two more about Watergate than most of us keyboard activists, and therefore carries a bit of weight - was Barry Goldwater's protege, and wrote two follow-ups (Conservatives Without Conscience, a great takedown of the 2006-era Republican party of Katrina, Schiavo and Social Security privatization; and Broken Government, about the genesis of the still-continuing gumming up of the machinery of government) excoriating the right for farking up governing and governance, largely as tit-for-tat over Watergate (Cheney, Rumsfeld and many other Bushies were former Nixonites).

// they tried to pin the Watergate coverup on Dean at first

Look, it's like this, you see? Um, there was this... this girl, and she and I, well, we kinda hit it off, and you know that apartment complex near the stadium? The one with the green signs all over it? Kinda artsy? Yeah, well, she lives there and we hung out all night and got high and there was this awesome band a few doors down...

Anyway, where was I? Oh, right. I did not have scandalous relations with that woman, Hillary Rodham Clinton.

Her daughter, though...

My twitter feed derped hard thanks to one guy retweeting idiots still upset about Benghazi. Apparently celebrating President's Day for people who "didn't leave 4 people behind in Benghazi" is a thing. Lest we forget how wonderful the country was with W in charge...

Never really noticed it before......there are two different styles of the letter 'F' in that sign.  Strange.  As well as the mixing of upper and lower case seemingly at random.  Love the 'Amercia"!

Seriously, they're giving MSNBC and Maddow credit for exposing and giving truth to the Christie scandal? That's a stretch, saying a few dozen viewers helped sink his barge.
 
2014-02-17 03:33:57 PM  
Plus, even if you take both accusations 100% completely dead seriously... the GOP's accusing Mrs. Clinton of kind of a bullshiat PR move that was slightly inconvenient for members of congress.  Christie is being accused of corruption on the order of running what amounts to  organized crime.

Sort of a fundamentally more interesting and important accusation even before you consider the GOP's one being nonsense.
