GUEST,saulgoldie BS: Lies about Fox (88* d) RE: BS: Lies about Fox 16 Dec 10


Bruce,
Thanks for starting this thread. It gives us a chance to hone our arguments against the rightwing spin machine.

I have heard Rachel Maddow, Keith Olberman, Chris Mathews, Ed Shultze, Lawrence O'Donnell, Jon Stewart, and Stephen Colbert all admit to mistakes on the rare occasions when they have made them, and to issue formal and PROPER apologies.

All of these individuals have phenomenal fact-checking machines, and they say, "I am sorry for the error and I will do everything I can to make sure it doesn't happen again," or something to that affect. As opposed to bogus rightwing "apologies" which go, "I am sorry if I offended anyone...(yada, yada)," which is not a sincere, genuine, and heartfelt apology. Indeed, when was the last time you heard ANY of the rightwing mouthpieces admit an error of any kind and sincerely apologize for it? Simple. They don't make mistakes, so they don't need to apologize or take back anything.

Anyway, this website gathers together people with an interest in folk music. Folk songs very seldom deal with the agonies of ruling over the masses or the trials and tribulations of corporations dealing with perceived unfair taxation or regulation. What is it exactly that appeals to you about "our kind of music?" Just wundering.

Saul
