    Honestly, it's insulting how they think we're not going to check their stories:

    Come On, No. Harry Reid Doesn't Hate Kids with Cancer - Abby Ohlheiser - The Atlantic Wire

    Or it's sad that they're so brainwashed that they take everything Fox says at face value.

    Either way, not good.

    So when someone told you (me) that Fox News distorted the context surrounding the Q&A session, because I had watched the clip on live tv some number of hours before this thread came up, and then proceeded to show the real footage and critique the writing of Fox's article-you provided no pushback? Really?

    We're supposed to believe that it was all due to you not being able to put more than two paragraphs in the original post? You could have at the very least criticized it yourself, but you didn't. You ran with it. You even pushed back when I showed how it was a pretty bad piece. Now it's apparently none of that happened, it was just because of copyright issues.

    Come now.

    To me the tweet really makes the story.
    Well, if you got the quotes pre-mangled by faux your respect of the quotes would have no bearing on the matter.

    Re-read the text and let's see.

    Here's how they start to conclude the affair:

    "Republicans are in such desperate straits that they have literally resorted to accusing me of not caring about kids with cancer. Shameful," his office tweeted.

    Reid argues that the Republicans are trying to "pick and choose" what parts of government to keep open, and that they should be dropping their resistance to ObamaCare and voting to keep all of government open.

    "You talk about reckless and irresponsible. Wow. What this is all about is ObamaCare. They are obsessed. I don't know what other word I can use," Reid said.
    Now, in this instance, we have a break from the Q&A session and it now moves to Reid addressing criticism of the Q&A session.

    So here's the problem.

    Fox News's article ends the Q&A with it seeming like there was one question, no reiterated question, and no shortened second response. Then, Reid addresses criticism of the conference. Only after this then do we get a summarization and quotes from the Q&A session-but you do not know that reading the article. It sounds like it could have been taken from his response to criticism of the session rather than it coming directly from the session and before the comment that Fox decided to put front and center.

    It throws out the context, gives readers no indication he actually said it during the session (in fact-before he said "why would we want to do that?", and we're expected to buy it.

    Still a gaffe on Reid's part. He's so far up Obama's rear-end that he's now calling considering individual appropriations bills (you know, how we funded govt for 200 years) crazy and evil. He's being an idiot, and the comment today simply confirms that he's only interested in one thing...pushing Obama's agenda no matter how destructive.

    Lol....somebody is ducking and dodging as per usual. You read the article and still decided to accept it for what it was. That has absolutely nothing to do with what percentage of the article you're allowed to post. It doesn't stop you from being objective in regards to what it is you're reading. However, instead, now you're doing what FOX did. Post part of the story and then run with your own opinion and bias the rest of the way. More of that great reading comprehension and objectivity you've displayed so often in this forum.
