Depends on what the definition of "lie" is... or something.
2002-02-27 03:22:24 PM  
quick1.... do your thing
2002-02-27 03:22:43 PM  
Um, excuse me? "bartcop.com"??

And who the hell is "smoking Joe Conason"??

Slow day for links I guess.....
2002-02-27 03:26:03 PM  
Could the GOP please get over Clinton? It's enough to make a conservative go crazy.
I know, I know - short trip.
2002-02-27 03:28:15 PM  
Any guesses as to how many posts THIS topic's going to get?

Republicans, Democrats...

On your mark, get set...FLAMEBAIT!
2002-02-27 03:28:16 PM  
Is it possible to make a page layout less desirable to read?

Just curious.
2002-02-27 03:28:16 PM  
Dear god, this is going to be a good one. *grabs popcorn*

3:1 odds on the flamewar taking over 150 posts to ignite
2:1 odds on 100 posts, and
even money on under 50.

2002-02-27 03:28:41 PM  
If BartCop can't do it.. No one can!

Link is farked for me...

Y'know, I get called a liberal pretty often, but I generally put "Bartcop" in the same general area or journalism as "NewsMax".

At least "ConservativeNews" admits it's bias.

2002-02-27 03:29:44 PM  
It's those goddamned right wing jingoistic FIREWALKERS I tell ya!
2002-02-27 03:29:58 PM  
Not farked, working just fine, WarmBeer.
2002-02-27 03:30:55 PM  
Like any other salesman, the resourceful propagandist must also be prepared to get lucky.

2002-02-27 03:31:11 PM  
smoking Joe Conason

Yes, I'm sure that smoking Joe Conason has all the major media outlets retracting (true) stories that Clinton had Ken Lay over at the Lincol Bedroom.....

ponderous man...heheh Bartcop: they report, you decide!
2002-02-27 03:31:19 PM  
ALWAYS believe EVERYTHING you read on the internet.

2002-02-27 03:32:04 PM  
And people wonder why I am an open mocker of the Chicago Tribune. It's rabidly conservative, at least in political issues.
2002-02-27 03:32:29 PM  
Silly Republicans, the truth is for kids!

Those farking dumbshiats could have checked the "Lincoln Bedroom list" anytime to see when Kenny Boy stayed overnite, which was during poppy Bush's reign.

That's how Republican farkwads bend and obfuscate the truth.

"Liberal Media" my farking ass.
2002-02-27 03:32:30 PM  
Interesting how he doesn't site any actual evidence to support his position.
2002-02-27 03:33:10 PM  
I always believe everything i read on the internet....Fb- is my father.
2002-02-27 03:34:36 PM  
Wait a second! I thought that we had a liberal media, that favored Clinton in everything. Diogenes confused....
2002-02-27 03:34:40 PM  
If you can't take the blame off yourself by showing you're innocent, then you can at least lie and claim that your enemies are as deep in the shiat as you are.

It's like that Al Gore and the internet thing.

Um, he lists the various news sources that post the original story, and then lists the various news sources that refute it. Given that's his story, isn't that enough?

Sheesh. I'm not a BartCop fan, but this covers that base pretty well.

I'm sorry, I couldn't resist.

Jynkst Ooooh, now I get it. I acquiesce......
2002-02-27 03:38:22 PM  
fark the GOP.
2002-02-27 03:38:26 PM  
IronBar: True. Actually, the "liberal media" thing spread the same way I'm sure...some talking head like Limbaugh spews it forth, or it's printed, and everyone else takes it for granted.

Hey, I think I just cracked the root of the correlation between being a hyper-conservative and being a Bible-thumping religious fundie!!!
2002-02-27 03:38:54 PM  
would you happen to have any Grey Poupon? or is that poop on
2002-02-27 03:42:29 PM  
The Chicago Tribune, Reuters, AP, The New York Times, Newsmax, Bartcop and the Belle Plaine Herald (Belle Plaine, MN, pop. 3200 or so) have all confirmed that Clinton personally shot and killed Vince Foster with a 9mm Beretta, and that it was the clean up effort that kept the FBI out of his office for a week after the slaying.
Gee... I've given details AND sited sources. I guess Jynkst believes me too.
2002-02-27 03:42:35 PM  
I am not going to believe anything posted on that POS site. A bunch of factless rants much like some of the posts of the fark boards...

...I mean on his site he calls the 5 supremes who voted against Gore fascist whores, then immediately below links to project 60, which glorifies our heroes who fought against fascism in WWII. OUr supreme court is like Hitler's regime? Bartcop needs to take his head out of his arse.
2002-02-27 03:42:51 PM  
fark the GOP? lol, the GOP ownz.
2002-02-27 03:43:09 PM  
Actually, there's no point in flaming over this thread. (Although I'm sure pinheads like Ironbar will try.)

What, some doofus puts up an incredibly lame "Anglefire" style personal web site, and all of a sudden it's newsworthy? Clutch ma pearls!

I noticed that CNN isn't exactly rushing to quote "Smokin' Joe". *sigh*
2002-02-27 03:46:21 PM  
Ironbar, WarmBeer, and Diogenes:
How about SHUTTING THE HELL UP!....sorry took that one right from Family Guy. You yakky libs...quoting bartcop.com on the left is akin to quoting the John Birch Society on the right. Please, not a serious site, just a bunch of smelly pinkos. I think Joe Conason was smoking Bill Clinton's pole though, or maybe just licking his ass. Hell, he's made a career out of it.
2002-02-27 03:47:16 PM  
The mediawhoresonline site that he refers to that refutes the clinton/lay connection has at it's top "In Association with Bartcop.com" and if salon ever posted a story on the lincoln/lay connection being wrong i can't find it.

Why would someone out websites in a HTML page and not put a link to the story............
2002-02-27 03:47:45 PM  
smoking Joe Conason, surely a name that will live in the annuls of journalism history :]
2002-02-27 03:48:35 PM  
aaaahhhh, the windy city.

Eat shiat, cheeseball.
2002-02-27 03:49:00 PM  
good article. excellent example of the jizz-dripping-from-their-chin media at work.
2002-02-27 03:50:13 PM  
Maybe I'll write a story about Godzilla stomping through Iraq and post it on my website. Once it's got a dotcom behind it it has to be true. Right?

Can you cite your sources that state Kidman is a Cheeseball? Thank you in advance.

ModDoctor: Okay...I think we all get it; your a conservative, and liberals are all whiners.
2002-02-27 03:54:31 PM  
Conason is not "Bartcop", just an author whose columns occasionally get posted there. Bartcop can be a raving maniac sometimes (and considers his site a "humor" site), but Conason is much more sensible.

simple minds might be persuaded anyway
That's right. Don't you (forget about them).

I was about to say "'Liberal Media' my farking ass" but Ironbar and others got there first.
2002-02-27 03:54:39 PM  
"...liberals are all whiners." But all liberals are whiners.
2002-02-27 03:54:53 PM  
Well, it does require that you perform the due diligence to actually check out some of the sources. It took 20 seconds to check out the Washington Times' story, for example.

Washington Times' Original story:

Sheesh. It's not like you guys have never heard of the world wide web or anything.
2002-02-27 03:55:34 PM  
Did you guys just read that godzilla just attacked Iraq. says the US is to blame...this is wild stuff
2002-02-27 03:56:19 PM  
PaveLow: BWAAAAHAHAHA! ...and Amen, too.

By the way...DID Shrub give all that cash that KennyBoy gave him back yet?


Just checking.
2002-02-27 03:56:41 PM  
The media isn't liberal???

Excuse me while I laugh my ass off.

2002-02-27 03:57:05 PM  
MacGabhain: There is ZERO evidence Lay stayed in the Lincoln Bedroom while Clinton was in office. NONE. All you can do is refute the guest lists that show he DID NOT.
