    McClatchy Reporter Speed Writes D.C. Tea Party Story in Record Time | NewsBusters.org


    [ame=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c0UIUdDMbeU]YouTube - Capitol Hill Conspiracy[/ame]

    Big Hollywood Blog Archive Barack Obama&#8217;s Helter-Skelter, Insane Clown Posse, Alinsky Plans to &#8216;Deconstruct&#8217; America

    And on and on at the link. Breitbart can really go on a tear when he feels like it. :lol:

    Nothing shakes up big government like a real grassroots movement. Shame that the far Left in power (Pelosi/Reid/Obama) don't have a reciprocal movement of their own and haven't for 40+ years. A hope and change flash in the pan with a trail of broken promises getting longer by the month can't keep up no matter how many lies they tell about the other side.

    Best of all, a party in power has never fallen out of favor so fast, with so little bump going to the other side of minority power politico's. The people, God bless em (maybe there is a God after all), are ready to vote out as many bums from both sides as possible. The MSM no longer has the power to thrust upon us another Obama or another McCain for POTUS. Three cheers for Al Gore, the inventor of the internet! :lol:

    I'd love to see you find a post of mine where I was defending that either once the facts started to come out.

    They all do it, you know it, I know it, and we both know why. It sells.

    Fact is, the days of hot lead are long since gone. But Breitbart reels 'em in. Either he can't do it himself, or he knows better and it's deliberate. If he is what he claims to be, it's obviously the latter. Again, no big deal except for the folks who swallow it.

    Either way, who cares? Just something else that doesn't matter for a so-called pundit to spin for a buck.

    Oh, I know YOU didn't. That was never my intent to imply that YOU did.

    Thanks. I thought you had me confused with somebody else for a minute there. :lol:

    This kind of non-story does burn me though, as did the rush on the original without checking the facts. I think of it as "Let them eat cake" journalism. Who has real reporting anymore, that isn't either full of spin and this kind of lucrative innuendo non-stories on one hand or simply parroting what they've been fed on the other?

    I'd love to see real investigative journalism come back instead of blowdried fluffy teleprompter readers and partisan hacks, but those days are long gone and the bosses are broke and too beholden to the people they're supposed to be watching. It's a pet peeve I guess.
