    And, he didn't make it that clear..he put it up there for more sensationalism. He put (file image) under the picture. At no point did he say "this xray is an example of what an orbital fracture looks like"

    Bonus.....he duped Ann Coulter, who took the xray and claimed it was Darren Wilson's.

    This week, we saw the X-ray of Officer Wilson's fractured eye socket.

    No, Fox is right wing, MSNBC is left wing. CNN is moderate.

    But to someone who is ultra right wing, every media source outside of Fox and discredited bloggers is left wing.

    It changes little. An assault on an officer is a felony. Going for a gun is another. I don't know if this is what happened but you don't know it didn't. So if you're suggesting that speculation is wrong I'll agree, but if you're saying only that speculation that disagrees with your narrative is wrong then you're just dishonest.

    Maybe? Never heard of him before you started your little hate campaign.

    Hint: CNN is a respected news org FOR MONEY. Without the dollars they would not even be a blog. They make money because people watch. Thus they do all they can to ensure people watch. CNN has told many a porkie in the past, they just quietly walk it back every time, making the bucks every step of the way.

    Already covered that, to avoid copyright issues. And Anne Coulter made a dumb mistake just as you and Johnson have in that she failed to actually read the caption, which btw was in regular typeface, so there's no excuse for the error.

    Well the same criticisms could be made of all American MSM. And no, all the facts aren't in.

    Correct, which is what is being done by people across the country.

    And..you aren't a capitalist?

    Tell me what news org is not a business, and doesn't have to make a profit.

    Hoft has a long record of sensationalism and outright lies. He got busted. Other bloggers took the bait and claimed the xray was of Wilson.

    No one fact checks things they agree with....

    Certainly can, except perhaps the locals where they don't make money from news, it's a loss leader for them. And that last, glad you're finally getting it.
