Show me some posts where I was wrong and didn't admit it. If not, then butt out.

I told you so. The smearing has begun. The Mutts are predictable if nothing else.
The bimbo with the teeth and fake breasts is getting used by them , and having her 15 minutes at the same time.
Maybe now that they have seen her goods they may give her Meghan Kelly's job, going from a bikini to a pussy pelmet is an achievement.
I heard that Meghan got knocked up, who is the father, surely not "Brit the face".

Yet another vacuous air head woman representing the repub point of view... When will they be ashamed?

She can even flash her fake breasts at everyone . I believe at that instant she decided hey..........its now or obscurity. Make your move. So she did.

To top it off they smear her because she doesn't agree with Gay marriage..
According to News Hounds if you disagree with Gay marriage you are a bigot.

O'Reilly and Miller Can't Tell One Political Radical From Another
Reported by Ellen - Fri 12:28 AM
Guest blogged by Julie
You think the little hen will print a retraction when she finds out that O'Reilly has already corrected the record?
Hey Julie, if you're watching Fox so we don't have to, you should at least pay attention.

On your 8:11 AM issue, Blackfon....
I tried to watch Musto/Olbermann tag team on Miss California over at MSNBC and I could not get past the anticipating, snorting Musto....
I stopped it at 1:57...it was true torture.
The hatred is unprecedented. I was not formally informed that the person's use of cosmetic surgery was now fair game in debate.
So now if we find out (surrrre, it's in doubt?) Nancy Pelosi had botox, her position on the budget is subject to ridicule.
What a wonderful world!

Lou Dobbs is another of those people who are called "racist" and "bigot" because he believes that the US should enforce the laws regarding ILLEGAL immigrants.

Good for Kasich and it would be good for Ohio!

I love the search topic "Rules".
The bassets never can quite figure out exactly what the J$P commenting rules are, even though it is such a simple matter to find them, anytime you want to write a comment (hint hint).

Woop! Patsy falls back to neck and neck with John T(royer) as the l'il feller pulls ahead....
"He A**ley, since you were making light of the military recently I want to ask you did you serve? Or did you run tail. I take the later. "
I'm surprised the little one simply didn't write "ladder". He would have gotten bonus points. 
Interesting, to the l'il feller, there are only two possible answers to the question "Did you serve".
"I ran tail"
What a sad lack of critical thinking ability Patrick has. But l'il feller, thank you for thinking of me.

Sorry, but I missed this earlier.

The l'il feller scores even more points for cutting and pasting my entire comment about the rules, then adding his own comment which has ABSOLUTELY NOTHING to do with my post which he C&P'd.
Well played little one. You are now two lengths ahead in the race. Your buddies John T(royer) and Patsy are now neck and neck for a distant second place.

I said this at the anti-thread:
and I WILL say it here:
I say this: I have NEVER seen anyone from media matters on foxnews.
Has anybody from MM been on? I would say if not, thats not really fair

Why would a credible outlet such as Fox News want to give a voice to proven liars who smear the channel daily? Would you let someone in your house who spent every day smearing you with lies on a website? 
MSNBC deserves MM. Peas in a pod.

Here you go Chris G, just a small example of how Faux News is viewed by the world at large. Are they all lying too?

Anisha then posts links to a wordpress blog, commondreams.org, youtube, frostjedi.com, and the ever so fair and balanced cbc.
Seriously, commondreams? Frostjedi? Nice sources, Anisha! :lol:

I don't have a clue about Media Matters or most other blogs, left or right.
I think I've seen Kos but I don't remember where and I know that Huff 'n Puff is on MSNBC ocassionally but that's all I can remember.
I guess the question I'm asking is, is it standard for bloggers to be on cable news shows? If it is what kind of break down is there for them?

"Why would a credible outlet such as Fox News want to give a voice to proven liars who smear the channel daily? Would you let someone in your house who spent every day smearing you with lies on a website? "
This reminded me of something that happened maybe a year or more ago.
My memory is vague on it and I'm hoping someone else will remember it in more detail.
Some guy, formerly of CNN (?) who was let go b/c of having a blog , was writing for Huff 'n Puff (?) and was invited on a Fox show.
During the segment he very nicely and politely asked the anchor if he could ask a question of him.
The anchor very politely said 'of course' and the guest from hell took off with a prepared statement that was an all out attack on Fox and the anchor too, I think.
Needless to say he was a cause celebre on the Blue Blogs for a while.
He proudly proclaimed that it was not spur of the moment but carefully thought out. 
His planned attack, his bragging on it later and the accolades from the denizens of the Blue Blogs astounded me. All I could think of was if I had done something so patently dishonest and rude I would be too ashamed to brag about it and if an ally had done it I would be ashamed for them.

It's good to see Olbermann was third in the demo Thursday....hopefully there were even less viewers when Musto was on with his disgusting stuff.
Poor Maddow was below 1 million viewers again, and way behind Larry, again.
The ratings for FNC were stellar again....Beck and Hannity seem to be doing well.
No wonder Shuster lost it!

It wasn't a CNN guy, Grammie. It was an obscure comedian. He did that early last year on "Fox & Friends Weekend." A day or two later, he shared his premeditation on Daily Kos. J$ linked to the video, the cause celebre blue blog posts, and the "I did it" diary entry here at J$P, all without naming the guy.
