    The only people who complain about HuffPo are hackish republicans and conservatives and WND well ... I wouldn't be surprised if you yourself cited it when it helped you. Your comparison is invalid.

    Huh, it's just us "hackish conservatives" that see huffpo as biased. You got me. I guess that's /thread for you, no need to come back.

    Of course, Huffpo's bias is well established... from Huffpo's bloggers for example:

    HuffPo provides a powerful platform for pro-labor and progressive messages. Doesn’t that outweigh wrongdoing on the part of its parent company?
    Statement from the Newspaper Guild | HPUB - Huffington Post Union of Bloggers

    Then of course, there is the old standby of Wikipedia:
    The Huffington Post was launched on May 9, 2005, as a liberal/left commentary outlet and alternative to news aggregators such as the Drudge Report.
    The Huffington Post - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    So we have the Huffpo bloggers admitting their pushing progressive drivvel, and huffpo's own creation as a left wing site as proof it's biased...

    But no, that's just crazy right wing talk eh?

    Did you read what I said? I said the only people who complain about HuffPo are hacking conservatives. Whether they have bias or not is irrelevant, every news source has some bias. Good luck finding one that doesn't. Learn to understand what you're reading, it'll do you some good.

    Still unable to understand what you read I see?

    But no, that's just crazy right wing talk eh?
    No. It's your inability to read. You're still complaining about HuffPo without showing a single bit of evidence that their statements are incorrect in any way shape or form.

    That's not true. Huffpo is as bad as mediamatters, or WND/Townhall.

    if the law is deemed unconstitutional, medicare isn't. open it up to everyone. that's closer to the single payer system that would have been the better choice.

    it's a bit funny to me that so many supporters of our current system are rooting for this law to get tossed out in court. in reality, that mandate is your last chance to keep our illogical employer-based healthcare system. without it, those who would have been covered will have to go to medicare or medicaid, because they're not profitable to cover.

    as a supporter of a modern, first world system, my opinion is if they toss the mandate, maybe that will bring us a step closer to a real solution.

    Only it isn't. HuffPo doesn't embrace backyard conspiracy theories or promote them as truth. If you disagree I welcome you to bring up a few examples. Maybe you could bring up Huffington arguing that it was Bush that blew up the towers? How about them claiming Cheney had evidence of 9/11 before it happened? Maybe you could show us Huffington claiming the plane that hit the Pentagon was a missile? I'll wait.

    No, I used the ****ing brief sent to SCOTUS, that happened to be hosted at Huffpo(was the first place I found the whole document). This is why you should read before you post...

    Only whiners who can't refute an article complain solely about its source.

    At least the poster of the article didn't refute his own argument with his own link

    Admittedly though, the article was from Gateway Pundit, the same source that claimed to find the list of democratic socialist caucus members in congress, but just copy/pasted a list of democratic house members. Gateway Pundit is slightly less trustworthy than WND.
