    That, and it seems they think a little more for themselves than the RW does. That is why there is no Rush on the left.

    I am tired of saying it, why else would they air the story without checking it out if they did not intend to decieve? Back in the old days the RW understood was false witness and lying was. Obvioulsy not anymore.

    I would disagree. A number of times it has been attempted to start left leaning talk radio, last experiment I recall was Air America, which collapsed due to lack of income.

    The market isn't willing to pay for the privileged of listening to left wing ideas.

    The left have to 'sneak' their agenda into legislation, which isn't read by legislators before voting on it, such as ObamaCare. Really, the liberal position on the political spectrum is a minority in the US.

    Don't we already have sites like buzzfeed for recording such "unassailable" facts that nobody could give two craps whether they're confirmed or not? And I didn't say that the "just asking questions" tact is only for being malicious, but for being really, really lazy as well. In fact, I'd say that laziness is the primary motivating factor in most such cases. It's like they say: never assume malice where incompetence will do (although since we're talking about Beck and Media Matters here, it's safe to assume a mixture of the two).

    It wasn't just Beck, it was also Greta Van Susteren, Sean Hannity and Karl Rove. The video was NOT shown by their real news people.

    MM is at once both much much less and much much more, if you catch my drift.

    You have to pick ... and then MM will carry a story that blames Glenn Beck for your suicide.

    At which point Glenn Beck will do a report quoting MM, and the universe will cancel itself out and cease to exist.

    Well, we know what Beck said when he included the disclaimer ... as long as you and MM included Greta, Sean, and Karl, can you please produce what each of them actually said?
    Oh, and to avoid another 3 pages of peripheral comments, give us what they actually said and the context, not what MM said they said because, you know, MM does tend to edit the daylights outa what they produce.
