Will you then admit he wasn't dragged through the streets. Seems to me you were proven wrong, yet someone is afraid to admit that.

Obama campaign video on the topic of context. Well done.

This is so dumb, it makes my eyes squint to read it. I apologize for your similar discomforts.

The person/s ultimately responsible for that line of question towards the President, that he was neglecting his responsibilities to meet with a pirate the day before, do you think they knew it was all b.s.? Had to, right? This seems like a new low for Fox, but I don't watch it, so maybe they speak with such a contempt for truth all day long.

I don't mean to say that what they said was so egregious, but the fact that when they were found to peddling a load of utter bullshit about the President, their correction was so underwhelming as to further the feeling of contempt I spoke of above.

Check out these stories from TPM and Media Matters on the same thing. Sounds like the first idiot to get taken in was Drudge and Fox and Friends ran with it. I don't see any indications that they knew the picture was from 2009.

Let me repeat that again: Fox and Friends and the Drudge Report, two of the main sources of conservative "information" in this day and age, thought that this, THIS was what Obama was doing instead of meeting with Netanyahu:

So, you're basically saying these newsie people are a bunch of dipshits who don't know how to fact check and fall for anything that is spoon fed to them. My thoughts exactly.

So the top "news article" on the Drudge report is:

100 DAYS TO GO UNTIL LARGEST TAX HIKES IN HISTORY

And it's a link to, wait for it...

Americans for Tax Reform

Anyone who thinks Drudge is a legitimate source of news information is a moran. Linking to a lobbying group as some source of information is bullshit.

Ok, this one is good enough for this thread (thanks to Endo Rockstar):

Ohio Voters Receive A Fun, Free Gift: One Million Anti-Obama DVDs
This film makes a new (unsubstantiated) claim that Chicago activist and communist Frank Marshall Davis is Obama’s real father.
