    Not. They are recognized nationwide for picking up on statements and doing their own sourced research. The St. Pete Times has the largest circulation in Florida, which last I looked was mostly Republican. Did you bother reading any of it? It's critical of both Olbermann and Maddow as well.

    Maggie if you have this much free time on your hands maybe you should think about planting a vegetable garden or volunteering to help in your community

    Excuse me? I'm not one of the ones here all night and most of the morning. What the fuck does my reading Politifact have to do with the price of vegetables?

    Interesting how, so far, not a single Con has ventured into the territory. Afraid you might have to actually read a few FACTS yourselves?

    Still no takers from the right? Hmmm, maybe the thread will get moved to MEDIA. In the meantime, here's a bump and I'll be back later.

    Now if 95% of people who believed everything they say as gospel would also accept that. The only place on television to get non-editorialized reporting is to read the crawls at the bottom of the respective channel news.
