Well if there was any uncertainty as to how you and the right-wing media work before the October 4 edition of Fox News’s “The O’Reilly Factor,” once again the typical tactics have been made as plain as day for all to see: 1) saturate the outlets with distortions and lies, 2) complain, whine, smear, mischaracterize, and attack when someone calls you out on your lies.
Media Matters didn’t “disagree with something you said on television,” as you told O’Reilly’s audience the other night. They corrected your mischaracterization of the Duelfer Report. You went on to say: “It’s kind of a — it’s a little boys’ Lord of the Flies kind of atmosphere, some of these things. They don’t want to be civilized, so they aren’t. But they’re really — they’re really not very efficient or effective. I mean, they’re more of a nuisance than anything else.”p>Hilarious. In your reality, the tantrums O’Reilly is currently throwing about Media Matters are “civilized,” while a simple correction of the factual record is childish and uncivilized. Frankly Mr. Babbin, Media Matters is extremely civilized, efficient, and effective. And you essentially admit it: it is a “nuisance.” It’s the same nuisance our President has when confronted with the facts: they show your own words to be lies, your reality to be an utter fabrication. br> — Tom Orange br> Washington, D.C. /p>
A man of faith in a godless age is hitting Americans where it hurts.
Mr. and Mrs. American Spectator Reader, let P.J. O’Rourke talk sense to your kids.
In Britain, defending your property can get you life.
The debacle of this president’s administration is both a cause and a symptom of the decline of American values. Unless Congress impeaches him, that decline will go on unchecked. An eminent jurist surveys the damage and assesses the chances for the recovery of our culture.
It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
The American Christmas, like the songs that celebrate it, makes room for everybody under the rainbow. Is that why so many people seem to be hostile to it?
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
