    Pete, the point here being is that Brock, without reading the book mind you, has already concluded that it's not the truth.
    Well, how can he make that determination when he's not even read the thing?

    He's already determined what he's going to find when he reads it, if he even bothers to read it. Already a case of confirmation bias, and hardly impartial. So anything that Brock writes about this book is already disqualified from serious consideration, due to his confirmation bias, the bias with which he's starting with. It's not even close to being truthful, and you know it.

    More the mystery that you continue to believe that he's a source of truth, when he's only a source of propaganda, as this instance clearly demonstrates.

    He will read it when the book comes out, you can bet you bottom dollar on that. I am quite sure there will be many reports on the book. Media Matters already has an extensive rap sheet on Scheitzer's (who is a Republican activist) works of fiction so its difficult to beleive the book will be anything different.

    No, because most of her supporters are gullible, political ignoramuses, just like whomever wins the rep nomination - most of their supporters will be gullible, political ignoramuses.
    Short of a book detailing her love of child porn (or some such hideous thing), their respective supporters will vote for them almost no matter what.

    IMO, at least 2/3'rd's of American voters are as ignorant as a post when it comes to how a country should be run...which is why whomever wins in 2016 WILL leave office with America in far worse shape then when they took office (just as with Obama and GW Bush and...).

    At this point Pete, I don't think that citing MediaMatters is going to help or support your position. Try again.

    MM's position has already been made clear by Brock, so you were expecting any honesty from them? How about a more independent source to backup your position?

    Why would you expect honestly from a right wing hack (Peter Schweizer) who has lied before? Can you give me any evidence that Brock is a liar and a propaganist?

    Given 2 differing positions, it's generally a good idea to use neither of them and use a third or more when searching for the truth.

    You just running to MM says a lot all on it's own.

    Me? I'm going to wait for the book to be published and distributed, and even wait a few weeks after that to see what'll all become of this.

    I see you haven't read the book or read any of Brocks material yet you said he was a propaganist. What a tangled web you weave. I have followed Media Matters since their inseption (2004) and have found them to be extremely accurate. Some of their stuff may lean left, but that is because the left is their audience. Mind you, that doesn't mean they lie, it may mean they have a different take on the subject matter.

    Be the first person on the block to have you copy of the book.

    Hillary Clinton lied about her Bosnia trip, so isn't it also fair to assume everything she says is a lie?

    I don't have the time, nor inclination, nor access to quality reference sources that it would take to vet that book, I'm afraid.

    I may have to take my own little poll of various news sources and see if they say anything about it, and what they say about it.

    If it's never mentioned again, that says a lot right there.

    If it's a source of constant coverage and review, and corroboration with other independent sources, that would say a lot as well.

    I guess we'll see.
