Huffington Post Has No Integrity

This headline from the HuffPo today would give you the false impression that Sen. Frist was whining about not liking his job.
But when you click on the link you soon discover that the headline is a purposeful manipulation of the authors intentions.

Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist plans to step down from his role as Majority Leader when his second term ends this year so he can concentrate on his presidential ambitions.

Asked if trying to run a campaign from such a position would be difficult, he replied: "Terrible, terrible, terrible, terrible."

In other words, it would be insane to make a run for president while trying to act as Majority Leader, there is simply too much work to be done. So he is doing the right thing. You would never get the impression that that was the intent of the story from the HuffPo's intentionally deceitful headline.

Its definitely gotten to the point where you cant trust a single headline at the HuffPo. Nothing but fake headlines, fake celebrity blogs, and fake war heroes. I'm convinced that Jayson Blair has landed a job as Editor-In-Chief at the HuffPo.

The HuffPo had decided to dutifully play by the rules of the template designated by the DNC.

You are going to notice the following for the rest of this year:
Frist Bashing, Iraq Bashing, and Hillary Bashing. Hillary is out with the moonbat left. Her ploy of trying to mold a public image as a moderate has fooled even the members of her own party and now they no longer trust her. They are very worried of Frist as a potential player in '08. Very worried.
And since the Dems still havent unveiled any sort of a plan, the only card they have left in their deck is the We-Are-Losing-In-Iraq card and 'redeployment'.

The HuffPo really believes it can fool all of the people all of the time. As long as they are Democrats.

Hilarious! Now you know how it feels to us when tens of thousands of mindless conservative sycophants constantly and daily misrepresent the left, liberals and Democrats in action, statement and philosophy online, on the radio, on television and in print. Doesn't feel good, does it? Wish your opponent had integrity, don't you? Well, you have to give integrity to expect it in return. Now you know how liberals have felt for the last thirty years of distortion, exaggeration, omission, misrepresentation and outright lies spewed by the right about us! Get used to it- you guys dragged us into the mud with your Karl Rovian dirty tricks, and it's only going to get dirtier from here.

Ah...I was wondering when Karl Rove or Halliburton was going to be mentioned... Never Fails!

"left, liberals and Democrats in action, statement and philosophy online, on the radio, on television and in print"

I think 'Das Kapital' has been represented quite well, in fact.


But what is hilarious Mr. Scotch is that this mindless, conjecture-driven Bush hate is going to get another (R) elected in 2008.

I'd rather not see that happen myself, but it's so fun watching the left implode... Democrats have no ideas and that is why they will continue to lose.

If the world is coming to an end, they why do Democrats have to bus people to the polls?

Considering I generally think your complaints about huffpo's headlines are unwarranted, you might think this is another instance, but it's not.

You're right on this one, the headline is completely innapropriate for this story.

There have been some democratic plans released this week but I was just watching Fox news (hardball) and one of the talking heads said: nobody cares what their plans are, they cant do anything with them until they get at leat one house under their control, and maybe not until they have 2 or the white house. (not an exact quote)

So they dont have plans or the plans dont matter...either way I urge all voters to abandon the parties and vote solely on your personal issues.
Kevin you seem to be in agreement with me on this and that's why I come here.

“Why do democrats have to slash the tires of peoples cars to keep them from voting?”

Not sure if this was meant literally or as a metaphor, but if you mean literally, I would suspect it would be the same reason why black (read: dem voting) neighborhoods were littered with flyers reminding them to vote but quoting the wrong day (late). Or perhaps the same reason why here in Colorado a Republican funded slush fund was used to place automated calls (falsely) accusing local Democrats of taking money from slush funds. It’s dirty politics made commonplace by Republicans desperate to maintain power, even if it costs them their integrity, and Democrats hoping to fill that void even if it means getting in that same mud with the Republicans.

“Didley, at least I lay out the lies of the left and state why they are lies.”

Never said you didn’t. But the American public sees through the corruption and lies of the Bush administration as shown by the consistently putrid poll numbers, even from Fox News. Took them 5 years, but it’s happened. I’m not sure what your point is. If it’s that the liars in office now are better than the liars that want to take their place, pointing out a few lefty distortions here and there is hardly a compelling way to build a consensus towards that supposition beyond the small crowd of lemmings who would be following you over that cliff without such cajoling.

“You cant do that. “

Are you typing that with a straight face? Really? Do you not know of the thousands of blogs similar to yours devoted to debunking the mountainous fountain of purposeful exaggerations, willful misrepresentation, calculated omissions, outright distortions and despicable lying that the conservative noise machine spews out daily? Do you really want me to post examples here, or maybe a link or seventy-three?

Or are you one of those fools who feels they can simply dismiss a point, or measured analysis, or cogent thought simply because of the (D) in front of the name, or you know them to be one of the (L) words, instead of actually using your brain to figure out who’s being honest and who is guilty of obscuring the truth for their “cause” de jour?

Notice in the first post I conceded your point. It was a distortion, certainly. I’m generalizing, but I’d be hard pressed to find someone on the Right willing to do this outright for a distortion spewed by a conservative source. I have experience with the Neanderthals at Newsmax who seem to perform this pathetic charade of falsification, slanting and lies as a code of practice and wear it as though it were a badge of honor.

“You cry of a vast conspiracy and lies but you cantt back it up with anything other than bumper sticker slogans.”

Well, there’s no “vast” conspiracy- those are your words. But there is an aggressive push by powerful and connected people to manipulate the public and create anti-left sentiment, especially through lies, distortion, omission, exaggeration and outright lies.

On the other hand, here’s the bumper sticker slogans that have dominated for the last 5 years in place of multifaceted and nuanced domestic and foreign policy needed for long-lasting success and protection of our Constitutional rights:

“9/11”
“Bring it on.”
“We’ll fight them over there so we don’t have to fight them here.”
“So the smoking gun is not a mushroom cloud.”
“Saddam Hussein has weapons of mass destructions he may give to terrorists.”
“It’s all the liberal media’s fault.”

+ countless others repeated over and over and over and over ad infinitum in place of any rational, convincing, well-argued, thoughtful policy.

If anybody is guilty of favoring empty sloganeering and mindless bumper sticker mentality it’s the Right in this country. Granted, their views lack nuance and are congenitally simple minded which makes it easier for them to be regurgitated as simple catchphrases and slogans. They have also proven to be dead wrong again and again and again and again and again and again and again.

I like Bush. Seems like an easygoing fella. He’s the kind of guy that would make a reasonably decent manager of an Ace Hardware store. I could totally have a beer with him on a Thursday night at a local bar. He might leave me with the tab, but at least he’d have given me a cute nickname my friends could start calling me. But he was the wrong choice for our country at the wrong time. He is not a good judge of character, rewards loyalty despite poor performance, made the wrong choices again and again in regards to Osama Bin Laden and the planning, execution and aftermath of invading Iraq, and doesn’t understand what a “post 9/11 view” really entails beyond the desires of the elitist special interest groups that helped him maintain and consolidate power. But I just “hate Bush” right? Uh huh.

"No, it wasnt a metaphor, Didley."

Well, then it was for the same reasons as the many examples of nasty Republicans trying to suppress the vote (including the two I described): desperation.

Too bad you didn't answer any of my other points of topic. But that's typical of the right-wing mentality: dodge and twist, smoke and mirrors, digress and divert, hope that you can get them on the defensive so you don't have to answer for your own sins.

I already conceded your point in this thread in my first post (that the Huffington post was deceitful), yet as usual you on the conservative spectrum blindly drum on your partisan bongos oblivious to the rest of the world. When I try to broaden the scope of the discussion to include the fact that there is a concerted effort to spread deceit on the Right as well, all you can do is whine and bitch and moan and complain and try to change the subject. Here's how the conversation might play out:

You: Buh Buh Buh what about this example of more Lefty dishonesty?

Me: For every one of those, there are three examples of deceit from the Right.

You: Nuh-uh.

Me: Uh-huh.

You: Prove it.

Me: Okay, here are examples of deceit similar or worse to the ones you complain about from the left from last week.

You: Hah. You can't prove your case.

Me: I just did.

You: Those can be explained away.

Me: You'd have to abandon the very essence of reasoning you're applying to castigate liberals in order to justify these as said and done by the right.

You: No I don't.

Me: Why not? Rules of logic don't apply to conservatives, only to liberals?

You: No, the answer is easy.

Me: Really? What is it?

You: Clinton did it.

Me: Two wrongs don't make a right.

You: Yes, they do, because the Right is right.

Me: That doesn't even make sense.

You: Doesn't have to, I'm preaching to the choir: they're going to eat up whatever I write because they already agree with me.

Me: So the fact that the Right lies with just as much if not more fervor and frequency isn't an issue?

You: Nope.

Me: Even though they're in power, so their lies have the potential to do actual damage to the Republic?

You: Doesn't matter. In my eyes, liberals and Democrats are wrong, and that makes them fair game.

Me: How can you possibly maintain any integrity in the forum of ideas with this view?

You: Because Republicans are "my guys".

Me: And that makes it all right? This sports team mentalitiy does little to help improve America. I've held many on the Left accountable for their deceptions. Why does the right have so much trouble policing their own?

You: Duh. Conceding anything = defeat.

Me: That view seems bad for America- part of being a good leader is admitting mistakes and changing course based on the new information.

You: Why do you hate America?

Me: Trying to get me on the defensive won't prove your view.

You: No, but it does help me avoid being responsible for my own statements. So again I'll ask, "Why do you hate America?"

Me: Why do you keep beating your wife?

You: How dare you? HOW DARE YOU? This just shows the lack of basic decency and integrity of you lefties. Thanks for proving my point for me.

Me: But you just asked me the same kind of loaded, damned-if-you-do-or don't kind of question a second ago.
I was just wallowing in the mud you created. How is it all right when you do degrade the discussion, but not when I respond in kind?

You: For the same reason you had an illegitimate black child out of wedlock.

Me: What?

You: Hey, it worked on John McCain in the 2000 Primaries. Got us Bush as president.

Me: No wonder our nation is in trouble.

You: Yeah, it's all Clinton's fault.

"That was quite entertaining, didley."

Thanks. Unlike Jon Stewart, I am your monkey.

"Liberals seem to enjoy drifting off into a dreamworld whereby they script the answers for their imaginary opponents."

Hey, don't blame me for pointing out that your site doesn't serve much of a purpose. Cheerleading the fans that would be rooting for the team anyway isn't exactly the most difficult proposition. "Hey look at this dumb thing some liberal said." "Yep, that sure is stooooopid." Enlightening, to be sure. And don't let the fact that dumbass crap is said by conservatives cloud your resolve.

As far as imaginary opponents, this is the nom de plume of right wing pundits, commentators and sycophants. It is often the only way they know how to communicate. Here's just a couple of examples from a 3 minute Google search.

http://wuzzadem.typepad.com is a conservative site solely devoted to concocting imaginary opponents and scenarios from the left. The site is completely wrongheaded and incorrect, but occasionally funny.

Or a 10 second internet search brought up The Daily Scoffer, http://thedailyscoffer.blogspot.com/2005/12/howard-dean-makes-obligatory-monthly.html a feeble attempt at a right-wing version of The Onion, where a fake interview of Howard Dean is used to ridicule him.

Or The Nose On Your Face's "hilarious" fake interview with Katie Couric and a Muslim. http://www.thenoseonyourface.com/the_nose_on_your_face/2006/03/tnoyf_exclusive.html

Mallard Fillmore's Bruce Tinsley predicates his entire strip on setting up straw men and gross liberal caricatures to knock down. All of these are just a couple of the endless examples of righties having to concoct imaginary people and scenarios in order to justify their flawed position.

Why, Rush Limbaugh has made a career out of lying about the opposition, knocking down those lies, then claiming that he must do so because the left isn't honest. A recent quote:

"I set up exactly what the other side's position is. I'm the only one who'll do it honestly. If I have a liberal guest on this program, I'm not guaranteed the liberal guest is going to be honest about what he believes."

Seems like the only way for the right to combat the left is make up an opponent or situation that falsely caricatures liberals/Democrats and then proceed to mindlessly berate them. And yet all you can do is criticize me for doing the same. Get your own house in order first, bucko.

If it’s allowable for Limbaugh, it must be for me too. I'm just doing what he's doing: setting up your side's argument because you can't be trusted to be honest about it. Thanks for agreeing with me in advance.

"Thanks for casting me to play the part of the racist,Clinton-basher (whom I voted for TWICE, by the way)."

Your mistake. Not sure where you got the racist part from, must be some sort of projection. And you're welcome, since you support the Clinton bashers. Guilty by association, you know. Works as an excuse for those guys in Guantanamo and the illegally wiretapped American citizens.

"My blog is here to counteract the lies of the Huffington Post."

Go for it. More power to ya. But it's like saying ‘My blog is here to expose the evils of tapioca pudding. It's all squishy with a weird texture. Yuck.’ Since the Huffington Post is more of a trading post and archive for many different writers and views, it shouldn’t be too hard to zero in on a few wackos and waste your days.

"And its quite apparent to anybody with half a brain that they are purposefully manipulating the truth."

I agree one hundred percent. People with half a brain think that. Now, people with the full brain intact understand all sides of the situation and see that the Right is no better/the same/egregiously worse. Now, whether or not the person who is using half a brain is using the half of the brain that controls the small percentage of brain that is actually functional is quite a different story. You prove the rule.

"I dont think you will find any conservative sites that espouse the hatred found on these left wingnut sites."

One doesn't have to go to minor blog sites of unknown cons like yourself to get their daily dose of hate. One need only to go to the mainstream nationally renowned conservative personalities to get a dose of that pure hatred.

"[Bill Clinton] masturbates in the sinks." Rivera Live, Aug. 2, 1999
"If you don't hate Clinton and the people who labored to keep him in office, you don't love your country." George, July 1999
"We're now at the point that it's beyond whether or not [Bill Clinton] is a horny hick. I really think it's a question of his mental stability. He really could be a lunatic. I think it is a rational question for Americans to ask whether their president is insane." Equal Time with Bill Mather.

Ohhh….but it’s just supposed to be FUNNY, right? Hilarious. Like a bigot telling black jokes, you can’t be funny if you hate the group you’re making fun of. Here’s some of Sean Hannity’s hatred of a poorly planned war of choice:

“No goal, no objective, not until we have those things and a compelling case is made, then I say, back out of it, because innocent people are going to die for nothing. That's why I'm against it.” In reference to the peacekeeping mission in Kosovo; Fox News, 4/5/99
“Explain to the mothers and fathers of American servicemen that may come home in body bags why their son or daughter have to give up their life?” In reference to the peacekeeping mission in Kosovo; Fox News, 4/6/99

Or maybe you prefer the popular Michael Savage’s hate:

The Enemies Within (10/01)
by Michael Savage
We've been focusing on the enemies within, but I will tell you that now that the sleeping giant has been awakened, we can all focus on the enemies without and the enemies within. And believe me we don't have to look to far. if you've been listening to my program they are branding themselves simply by getting up and continuing what they've been doing for twenty and thirty years. The fact of the matter is they've long hated this country. They've long wanted to see it chained. They've long wanted to see it fall. The best thing we can do is listen to them; read what they write. Simply if you are a leftist, I certainly never supported any of these people (I've attacked them for all the years I've been on radio, tryin to warn you about them), but when you hear these vile speeches of the kind we read on my program, what you do is if you are a good liberal you withdraw your support. You don't go to those churches where you hear it, you stop giving to the phony groups; when you find out that they're putting a knife into the back of America in our time of need. That's what you can do as an American. ...

Sounds like the mainstream conservative orators are just nasty, nasty HATERS. I guess it's just their listeners that are the level-headed, thoughtful thinkers you describe to differentiate from the crazy liberal freaks.

"One need only read the comments sections to see that. Liberals are filled with anger and it shows in the vitriol they spew. "

Well, I’m not an expert on conservative sites. I don’t patrol them much. When I do, I notice a distinct theme of self-righteousness and viciousness not present on similar sites run by lefties. Ironically those are two negative traits the right seems to be accusing the left of regularly. Again, project much?

But on the sites I have visited are often dealing with embattles conservative souls trying to purge their anger in vitriolic ways that make liberal diatribes sound like a transcript from Mr. Rogers Neighborhood:

“Liberalism is a Mental Disorder and Al(SOCIALIST)Frankin is a traitor to the US.He and all the other SANDAL LICKING LIBERALS will be the first ones the ISLAMONAZI'S behead.Because they allowed the Cult of Islam and the followers of Muhammad(May pigs piss on his rotting corpse)to gain a foot hold in our Country.”
"New Orleans Can’t Be Saved. There’re Too Many Negroes There! "
“This week Im trashing libs they are the true ENEMY WITHIN’

Here’s a list of actual freeper quotes from that big conservative site Free Republic.These deal with homophobia in particular. Imagine all the hate if I increased the quote gathering two twenty or thirty topics:

http://quinnell.us/society/inequality/homo/incidents.html

Yeah, no hate there. It’s all just accurate and informational, right? Guffaw. Or maybe you will just distance yourself from them “Oh they don’t speak for ME.” Guess what, until you call for them to shut up with the passion and urgency you devote to attacking the millions of good, patriotic,hard-working, tax-paying, flag-waving, church-going American citizens of the Left, they sure do speak for you. And my how short your memory is if you can't remember the huge bandwidth devoted to pure Clinton hatred in the 90’s at the birth of our great internet.

"p.s. Anybody who is so stupid that they fall for the old "The election is next week" flyer shouldnt be voting in the first place."

P.S. Anybody who thinks that falling for a dirty trick is grounds for revoking privileges in a democratic society doesn't deserve to have his party in power. How many April Fool’s Jokes did you fall for? Well, you can’t vote in 2006.

Your bravado would be interesting if you had any credibility whatsoever. But you don’t.

“Thats a laughable list of sites you put out there. I never heard of any of them.”

LOL! What are you talking about? You complained that I, an unknown person on the internet had to use “imaginary opponents” and insinuated that only the left did this. So I simply showed you examples of other unknowns that did it, all of them coming from the right. That you had to (once again) distort the conversation to insinuate (falsely) that no “major” rightwing sites did that…are you that batty? But if you do need a mainstream example, I provided Limbaugh. There are plenty of transcripts of him doing the whole “clip” interview schtick using liberals as his patsy.

I don’t need to “prove” that rightie sites are hateful liars; once again, your Neocon Manual has come in handy, as you worked hard to somehow twist me into the defensive. I provided a prominent example of rightie hate, specifically on the single topic of homosexuality. But what does that matter when mainstream right wing demagogues Ann Coulter, Sean Hannity and Michael Savage churn it out everyday? I could go on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on with the disgusting filth they and countless local conservative hate merchants spew daily, but that doesn’t matter to yes men (read: you). You already have your conclusions, and you just need to tailor the facts to fit into them, just like those you criticize.

“What the fuck are these, didley? These are your credible right wing sites? I'm not getting my quotes from obscure sites run by Joe Blogger. “

Well, “the fuck” is explained above. But since you obviously don’t actually read the comments, I’ll repeat the major sites I’ve already mentioned. I mentioned FreeRepublic.com, a major rightwing nut job website which is filled hourly to the brim with impure, adulterated hate. And I mentioned Newsmax, a major rightie website that seems to view distorting and lying about the left as an essential political mechanism. They wear their lies and hate as a badge of honor.

“I quote from The Huffington Post and MoveOn.org. Thats it!”

See my tapioca pudding remark in the last post.

“They are both sites that raise millions of dollars for the democrats and their intention is to make a profit and promote a political agenda. And they do just that. They are sites that get millions of visitors each week.


The American Way! Strange that you would cheer these goals if it were conservatives making a profit and the conservative agenda. You just hate that liberals are successful! How anti-capitalist of you. If I were a rightwing nut job, this is where I would call you a godless commie. Why do you hate America and the American way?

“I'm not quoting from blogs written by some unemployed loser residing in his mom's basement. You are.”

Well, since you ignored every last one of my points, and ignored that I successfully refuted every last one of your claims. To review:

1. Liberals script answers for imaginary opponents: provided examples of righties committing this same “crime” as a regular apparatus of debate (as unknown as myself but conservatives nonetheless. You wanted to somehow conflate my separate examples of righties using imaginary opponents as examples of rightwing hatred, but of course to do that would mean ignoring the concept of topic sentences. If you live in America, learn English.)
2. Anybody with half a brain knows the Huffington post is “manipulating the truth”: conceded the deceit of the Frist headline in the first post, made sure to make a snide comment about those with a “full brain” understood both sides manipulate the truth.
3. Conservative sites don’t espouse hatred like the lefties do: provided not only a link to the disgusting hatred of rightwing commenting on a major site (FreeRepublic.com), but also gave you many examples of mainstream con demagogues espousing reams of hatred towards the left.

“And try to make your point without penning a novella.”

Poor baby …ADD kicking in again? Wouldn’t want you to burst a blood vessel in your brain. If you actually addressed the issues I discuss in my posts instead of ignoring, digressing, diverting and distorting, we might just get somewhere. It’s obvious you’re guilty of the same crimes you indict the Huffington Post for. At least you’re living up to your blog’s namesake!

Glad I could help with your site's numbers. If Fox News has taught us anything, it's that two idiots yelling at each other is great for ratings!

But actually I'm just about done with your trashy site once and for all. It was good while it lasted, but I have more important things to do than keep pointing out your inability to articulate your position, your inability to refute even the most basic arguments, your penchant for digression and diversion over cogent debate or thoughtful analysis (like most neocons), and finally the essential futility of your life's work on this site. There are more pressing matters I have to attend to, like whether I should do the laundry, or just wear the white socks with the black shoes. You know, more important stuff!

And yes, I'll make sure the door doesn't bump me in the ass on the way out.

It's been a blast, and I know where to come back to once in awhile for a dose of inanity, ineffectiveness and futility. It helps reminds me of why I am nor never will identify myself as a conservative.

"A conservative is a man with two perfectly good legs who, instead of walking for themselves, decides to jump a ride on the backs of America's tired and poor." -Me.

Also,

"A conservative is someone who is not afraid to borrow money from Communists so he may give today’s rich the shirt off your grandchildren’s back."
-Me again.

Since this is one of my shorter entry, it will also be my last. Unlike O'Reilly, I'll give you the last word. Maybe you could use it to actually provide a single sound argument or refutation. Nah, just make a snide comment. It'll be easier. See you at the polls!
