    The level of disinformation, misleading and flat out lies are unreal.
    If someone conflated the CR confrontation with the Debt Limit discussion, would you call that at least misleading?

    Naah, would never happen since it's been done for the last 2-3 weeks with no outrage...

    Stop trying to claim it was what it wasn't.
    I saw it too and I accurately presented it here.
    In your version, the fact that he thought he was presenting a rationale for rejecting NIH funding not only doesn't make it better but also screams hypocrisy.
    If you're suggesting that Reid was speaking to Schumer when he said what he said then that's very very much of a stretch ... your av was always more honest than that.

    And what you call "the meat" was Harry trying to NOT answer the question so as to avoid sounding like he ended up sounding anyway.

    If it screams hypocrisy, that is fine, because in a way, it does. That is not what Fox News wanted you to gleam from his comments or any subsequent comment from Bash which came after the airing of the exchange. He wanted you to think his first reaction was dismiss the children out of hand.

    I was stating that he was going to reiterate what Schumer and Durbin had already said.

    If you watched it you'd know Schumer was barely audible so if Harry was bouncing off that he needed to repeat it ... and he didn't. He balanced the kid with cancer to people out of work. No doubt about it.

    Greetings, Fiddytree.

    I missed the press conference you are discussing, so I have read what has been posted, but I am still unclear about one thing that I believe is important. I understand from reading the posts that there was some back and forth semi-related arguing going on, but my question is :did Reid ever answer Bash's direct question about why the Senate wouldn't consider the NIH bill?

    Sure... let's see:

    There's photoshopping images of politicians they want to demonize:

    foxnews_photoshop_stevenreddicliffe.jpg

    foxnews_photoshop_jacquessteinberg.jpg

    Then there is the swapping of video footage to push the narrative that the Wisconsis union rally's were violent by showing rally footage from a California rally... No there was no disclaimer saying they did this... it was he palm trees that gave their lie away.



    If you want blatant lying other than the ones that happen ever damn day there is this court case where they felt it important to legally win the right to lie.

    If you want more evidence just turn on The Five or the morning idiots. They pull stuff right out of their ass and it's generally angry bullcrap they just make up.

    So next time any of you Fox News lovers want to say "all media does that..." you have to go dig up this kind of **** I just posted above.
