    Lets see from the right, they lied about a McCain campaign worker who said she was beat up and spray painted with an O by Obama supporters, they lied about New Black Panthers blocking Republican voters from voting, they posted edited half truthful videos about Sherrod and ACORN, they lied and said Obama went to a madrassa, they lied and fabricated quotes from Obama's book about his father, they lied and said Jeremiah Wright condemed all of America and Americans, they lied and said Obama was Muslim and not American, they lied and distorted the relationship between Obama and Ayers, they lied and said Obama dropped charges against the New Black Panthers when it was the Bush administration who decided not to pursue charges, they lied and said Obama went to a racist church, they lied and Michelle Malkin was threatened, they lied and said there are not racists in the Tea Party, they lied about WMDs in Iraq, I have even more. To top it off, they have media outlets and blogs that continually lies, distort and falsify facts for political gain.


    There are no equivalents to Karl Rove, Rush Limbaugh, Michelle Malkin, Glen Beck, Sarah Palin, Briebart, Sean Hannity, Ann Coulter, Juan Williams, and Angela McGowan on the left who engage in dishonest buffonery in the media.

    There just hasn't been any dishonest reporting from liberal media, we react to the bullshit on the right, we don't createc controversy.

    I am sure this award was just for fun:

    Dishonest Reporter of the Year
    [​IMG]This year's Dishonest Reporter voting marks a change for HonestReporting readers. Previous awards went to large, impersonal news services, but not so this year. One journalist made herself such a lightning rod in 2007 she easily defeated BBC and Reuters – the traditional disfavorites.
    The results didn't surprise us, but the depth of anger and lingering resentment indicate that readers weren't just outraged by our winner's work; on some level, they were personally offended in a way far exceeding the rest of the MSM’s Mideast coverage this year. Which is why the 2007 Dishonest Reporting Award goes to Christiane Amanpour, for her in-depth, but tragically flawed CNN special series, God's Warriors.
    The series sought to examine Jewish, Muslim and Christian extremism. It's not our intention to address God's Warriors yet again. However, reader criticism can be boiled down to four primary charges. In a nutshell, Amanpour's series:

    • Equated years-old isolated cases of Jewish extremism with Islamic terror that has killed thousands of people in New York, London, Madrid, Bali, Amman, etc.
    • Spuriously claimed that fringe elements of world Jewry succeeded in hijacking Israeli and American government policy.
    • Addressed radical Islam with kid gloves.
    • Belittled religious belief in general.
    [​IMG] Religious extremism is a valid news story and an accurate, honest comparison of the three major monotheistic faiths would undoubtedly have a positive impact on public debate.
    Unfortunately, the sense our readers and we have is that Amanpour didn't spend a year researching religious extremism, but rather reinforcing her own world views.

    What a fucking joke you are. EVERY THING Obama says is a lie, everything that the press FAILED to do during 2008 regarding Obama is leftist bullshit. What was it? ABC that turned their network over to the White House?

    As we speak the liberals in congress are trying to HIDE ethics charges against two Democrats to avoid telling the American people all the illegal unethical things they have done in the past.

    Shall I go on?

    So you missed the part about "Journolist", a conspiracy amongst 400 left wing media folks to throw blanket racism charges, attack right wing candidates, and do whatever it took to get Obama elected?

    Oh. Of course you missed it. MSNBC wouldn't cover it. Google it. Then rethink your comment.

    Quite simple lie Obama told: He said nothing would pass except if it was "pay-go". If it wasn't paid for, it wouldn't pass.

    Then the unemployment extensions came up. The Dems wanted to pass it, UNPAID for. The Republicans wanted it PAID FOR. EXACTLY what Obama promised he would do.

    And the Republicans got hammered as racist hate mongers for doing nothing but saying we should pass the bill according to the promise of Obama himself.

    Obama promising it? Genius. Breathtaking. Noble. Wonderful. Christ like.

    Republicans sticking to what Obama promised to do? Racist. Hateful.


    Somehow, libs make sense of that.

    What CHARGES are the liberals in Congress trying to hide? If you're talking about Rangel four Democrats and Republicans site on the committe thats investigating whether to charge him, so how are liberals in Congress trying to hide the charges?
