coeyagi: Cletus C.: Actually, I was referring to the fact MSNBC's viewership is pathetic. The Christie scandal was pursued with vigor by the "mainstream" media. If it had just been Maddow most people would never have heard or just chalked it up to another of her rants.

But then again, I have no idea what the fark you're talking about so there's that.

coeyagi: So, yes, obviously, your funny about MSNBC (which has been told many times by many FarkCons as some evidence - of what - that more retards choose lies and bullsh*t than the alternative)

No sh*t, sherlock.  You have no idea that I was agreeing with you and giving you a reason for it?

FFS, man, it's time to start blaming yourself for your lack of reading comprehension.  I write for a living and still get a paycheck for it, so it's time to start wondering about the man in the mirror.

ongbok: 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?


CSB: I went to a teabag protest once to counter-protest since it was my Congressional district.  I had a very detailed sign with lots of words on both sides quoting the Constitution and the Bible, and one of the teabaggers was trying to make fun of me for it.  I infromed him he had three words on his sign, and one of them was spelled wrong, which surprisingly made him walk away in silence.  Later in the day, I was told by an elderly gentleman that the Jews only supported health care reform because they are a tribal people.  The signs you see are are not outliers in the slightest, and it's not just the spelling.

Skleenar: Garet Garrett: Americans can recognize the difference between making up wall to wall coverage of a scandal by every major news network and covering one up.

FTFY, smitty.

The liberal news networks that people actually watch had 17x more coverage of BridgeGate in 24 hours than of the IRS scandal in over 6 months.

As for Benghazi, you all can stop now.  We get it.  You don't care why Americans were in put harm's way, why they were killed, or why you were lied to about who did the killing.  You don't care that the administration has refused to allow Congress to investigate those questions on your behalf.  You don't care that the killers remain at large.  It's a fake scandal because, well, "What difference, at this point, does it make?"  We understand you quite clearly.  CLINTON 2016!

Hear hear.  In all my years of non-partisan, dispassionate observation of the political process, I have never seen such a blatantly partisan and fact-free response to an issue as that of the libtards trying to shield their POTUS and SECSTATE from whatever it was that it is suggested they did that was blatantly scandalous in Benghazi.

Are you aware you could have stopped at the sinker?

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


Well, to be fair, what I saw of Bob Dole's apartment at the Watergate on TV, it looked pretty nice.  So it's sort of easy for Benghazi to not be as nice.

Did you hear about bedbug problems or something?

JavierLobo: They can't make Benghazi stick because they can't tie the murderous acts of terrorists back to Obama/Clinton.

I think people grasp that Obama didn't attack that embassy, and that though it was bad, bad shiat happens in Muslim countries undergoing revolutions.

Whereas with the bridge thing you have a pretty clear link between Christie Administration --> Wildstein --> Bridge Closures thanks to that magic email.


But but but Benghazi is still real to me!  If Issa wants answers, Obama had better give them to Issa!  I mean, either Obama has a time machine and can fix this - OR - he could give a famous interview where he makes a plea to FUTURE TIME TRAVELERS to go back and fix Benghazi.  That way, in the year 2248 or something, the future time travelers will stumble across the plea from Obama and happily oblige!

Cletus C.: 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.


It's not that FoxNews viewers can't handle the truth, it's just that the truth doesn't agree with their narrative, a narrative that is based off of fear and loathing of their fellow man.  So, yes, obviously, your funny about MSNBC (which has been told many times by many FarkCons as some evidence - of what - that more retards choose lies and bullsh*t than the alternative) means something, it means that MSNBC can't claim credit for this solely.  It must be the rest of the liberal media!

You'd be get on the red herring signal, Cletus!  Unite against the scourge of the liberal media!
