    I always hear news being dismissed because of where it comes from. So I'm curious what news is considered legitimate to Republicans?

    20 views and not one comment....C'mon, I hear all the time the news sources you guys dont accept (Huffpo and others) but what do you accept as credible news sources? Is the question that hard?

    Pretty much anything that isn't a long-winded rant on how stupid and racist the "teabaggers" are.

    Is the answer that hard, that you have to ask? Try an actual news source, as opposed to a blog, or an opinion piece, or the website of some agenda-driven political group. While I will still point out the slant in the NY Times' writing and what it is they aren't telling you about the story, they are at least an actual news organization. Huffington Post is a blog. Feminist.com and the NARAL website aren't even THAT good.

    Now what, precisely, was hard to figure out about that?

    The ones that use facts and reason. Amazing how those pesky things annoy the left.

    Attacking the source is just a rightwinger's way avoiding the argument.

    And they won't tell you what sources they consider legitimate, because they don't want to give up that escape mechanism.

    Just keep in mind, you only have to prove these rightwing nuts wrong, you don't have to get them to admit they've been proven wrong. If you try to do the latter, they will just wear you out with obstinate denial.

    Any source that shows the republicans in a good light is a legitimate source to them. For that report at least.
