    Go figure.
    If not partisanship, then what?

    People on the right keep starting these threads with a particular perspective because people on the left won't. People on the left seem to be attracted to them in droves, however.

    There is no 'big deal' about fact checking Sarah Palin's book. There IS a big deal when the media, who is supposed to be the watchdog re all sides of all issues, choose to fact check Sarah's book in far more detail and depth than they have ever presumed to fact check any leftist's book about anything.

    It is just more evidence of the blatant and obvious bias and partiality of most of the mainstream media these days.

    Personally, I find it interesting that a majority of the outrage is being focused towards the fact that Palin's book was fact checked in the first place...not the inaccuracies that were found because of the fact check. I'm just curious what people on the right have to say about these inaccuracy claims made by AP.

    Seems to me the outrage is that Palin's book was forefully fact checked by the AP -and- The Obama's was not.

    The -and- is important.

    I don't see anyone claiming anything is a big deal ...? I'm simply asking questions ... Why wasn't "An Inconvenient Truth" fact checked? That was a "big news" when it came out and still is. No 11 AP journalists.

    The obvious and simple answer is - of ****ing course it's bias... but no one wants to admit this other than the Republicans and conservatives. Were it left up to the media or Democrats / liberals, we'd all be fat dumb and happy. But see... sometimes people have to speak out in a representative Republic when application of clearly ideological witch hunts are executed and those who ideologically agree with the witch hunts deny it's existence. That's just a lie and perpetuates hypocrisy and bias. You may be okay with that - others of us are not.

    So if someone makes a claim that this happens all the time and what's all the fuss about ... I call them out on it and either I'm proven wrong and I'll admit it, or I'm proven right and those denying and lying about have damaged credibility. If we can't be honest about our bias - why bother?

    Outrage? What, is that the liberal tag to place on anything that the opposition to your particular POV says that you disagree with? I think outrage is way too strong, maybe interest, or curiosity in why liberals think we don't know what is going on here.


    not the inaccuracies that were found because of the fact check. I'm just curious what people on the right have to say about these inaccuracy claims made by AP.

    What were the inaccuracies? Last I had heard of it there were something like 7. That works out to less than one per highly paid fact checker, goon that the AP assigned.....Sounds like a piss poor job if you ask me.

    And that issue has been discussed to death. What do you have to say about the inaccuracies that they found?

    What I personally love are all the attributes and whining...

    blablabla ... what's the big deal?

    blablabla ... what's with all the outrage?


    It's the only way to belittle and ridicule an issue so it's not discussed - if it's shut down and not spoken about, it's much better for liberals and those with bias. Alinsky's tactic, #5:

    Not at all. I would certainly characterize what is happening her and on various right wing pundit shows as outrage. I would do the same if the issue were reversed and it was liberals who were outraged.

    What were the inaccuracies? Last I had heard of it there were something like 7. That works out to less than one per highly paid fact checker, goon that the AP assigned.....Sounds like a piss poor job if you ask me.
    Here's the article that they did:

    FACT CHECK: Palin's book goes rogue on some facts - Yahoo! News

    Do you have any thoughts on this? I don't have an opinion on them one way or another, I'm just curious what people on the right think about this stuff.

    are you telling me you actually take her seriously?
    She's VASTLY more accomplished than Barack Obama or Hilary Clinton, yet you take them seriously.
