    No, books should not be fact checked.....


    Unless they are Written by Sarah Palin.
    "I condemn the ideology of White Supremacy and Nazism. They are thugs, criminals, and repugnant, and are against what I believe to be "The American Way" "
    Thus my obligatory condemnation of White supremacy will now be in every post, lest I be accused of supporting it because I didn't mention it specifically every time I post.

    That's like saying prove that all reporters rely on sources to write their stories. It's one of those obvious things that you'd only question if you have no real argument. Go read thousands of book reviews and tell me if any of them contain challenges to facts.

    Provide evidence that all books are fact checked... and when you cannot don't make outrageous unsubstantiated claims. got it?
    It is routine to fact check books before reviewing or commenting on them in the media. That goes without saying. Calling this claim "outrageous" is silly. Don't waste our time with this one.

    Someone should have fact checked that "Million Little Pieces" book sooner.

    That's not what's being discussed here - stay on topic. The statement was made that all books are fact checked the same way as Palin's book is being fact checked - which is ludicrous. I pointed out the stupidity of such a statement. My argument is: Not all books are fact checked with AP reporters.

    Is it on pace to be the best selling nonfiction book in recent history? Palin's is.

    Name on left wing book that has been fact checked like Palin's has. We'll be waiting.

    Her book as far as facts go is good for toilet paper and that's about it...

    She quit.

    She lost.

    She lies.

    She has been a blithering idiot from day one.

    She didn't even write this roll of toilet paper.

    But she is a fine representative of the current leadership of the Republican party.

    I say fact check the hell out of this piece of trash. She deserves nothing more.
