Well some people just love watching a train wreck. I love watching DU.
And what do the good people at DU have to say about the CBS report on Rathergate?
Evidently there is a lot of learned helplesness going on over there
by tridim Mon Jan-10-05 03:45 PMSo he thinks the story that once was true is now being branded a lie. I am not sure what makes him feel so helpless. The truth or the fact that his beliefs are not being confirmed. Well he is a denizen of DU (1000+ posts). It could be both.
Well it's official, apparently CBS made up the entire Bush NG story
I've heard several newsbreaks on a few different radio stations (even AAR), and they all say that the story was and is discredited. The docs were fake and the content was fake. CBS apparently made it all up.
Rove: 1 - Truth: 0
I'm fuming mad right now. They were just busted for bribing Armstrong Williams with tax dollars, yet they still have the gall to close this story out with a mammoth lie. Sigh, I guess it's nothing new. I feel so helpless.
And then we have the timing is everything crowd. Why is this coming out now? The DU folks have an answer.
by itcfish1 Mon Jan-10-05 04:54 PMCBS held on to this story and then released it just when it could help the Republicans the most. Uh. Huh. It coulda happened that way. Maybe an investigation is needed. LOL.
17. Funny This Coming Out Now
When the Armstrong Williams story was growing legs.
Ya see it is all the fault of the Republican TV networks. I got proof. Well maybe not proof. I do have a statement:
by TheGoldenRule Mon Jan-10-05 05:40 PMSo there you have it. A Republican plot by the Republican media. Who writes their jokes? It is not a joke? Coulda fooled me.
18. This pisses me off!
Time to let CBS and all the other repuke networks that they've lost a viewer-though actually, I gave up on them all right after the election.
I hope everyone takes the time to do the same!
by mbee Mon Jan-10-05 06:02 PMLet me see here. The investigation turns up inconvenient facts and it is not investigative journalism. Geeze. I had never looked at it that way before. Probably because I was dropped on my head as a kid. Or the whole lot of them were. Hard to imagine so many clumsy parents. Hard to imagine so many brain damaged kids. Maybe it was the brown acid. Or perhaps there are contacts missing. Like with reality.
21. Hey, it's not their fault since they are not allowed to actually
do investigative journalism. It's against pug law.
