CORRECTION: A previous version of this story misstated the last time a House member was on a presidential ticket. No Democratic ticket has included one since 1984.

That can't be right. They're trying to eliminate the GOP ticket from '12 and now they own up to a mistake? What kind of liberal propaganda machine are they?

I will not be rest until the author is fired and jailed for a minimum of 5 years. Look, should he be jailed? No. It's not illegal. But you're obviously not thinking about the prisons profit margins and we need bodies. Can you think of a better type of person to lock up than a journalist? I can't. #crossthreadreference

My point was that many of the people writing those articles don't have much historical knowledge.

I believe Fox retracted that story. Did our resident media watchdog happen to mention that in this thread, or did that retraction magically get overlooked?

Technically I think I'm the Fox News watchdog. I believe I brought up that story once, perhaps twice but I'm not sure. In any event it got as much or less coverage as the bombshell about the Harry Potter lady so we're good

Even after Fox retracted the story, it remained on their website. I haven't checked lately to see if it's still up, nor should I have to; that's the responsibility of our in-house Fox "News" beat reporter.

I paid him a lot of money to publish the Travis Report. Thus far I am underwhelmed.

I think Hannity stated publically that while FN was retracting the story, he was not obligated to do so on his show and would continue to pursue the story.

I thought the Travis report was going pretty okay :( it's not like I'm gonna start actually reading Fox News or something you have to understand that. I don't want to go completely bonkers batshit. It's a tough job.

Click-bait headline. Wow. Never seen a click-bait headline before. Brand new stuff!

If you do not like click-bait headlines, then maybe you should argue we somehow scale back for-profit media, because it is not going away in our hyper-competitive media market.

Beginning of the article reads:

Conservative billionaire Charles Koch is predicting average American incomes of $100,000 annually in roughly a decade if government is scaled back and regulations are scrapped.

One way to get there? Building and using more bombs, he jokingly told about 450 donors to the political network he backs.

“I think we can have growth rates in excess of 4%. When I’m talking about growth rates, I’m not talking about that GDP, which counts poison gas the same as it counts penicillin,” the 79-year-old industrialist said, veering off his prepared remarks. “What a monstrous measure this is. If we make more bombs, the GDP goes up — particularly if we explode them.”

His audience laughed, clearly getting the joke.

“Maybe we make more bombs,” he said, trailing off. “I’m just kidding. I won’t go there.”

Koch was making the broader point that economic growth compounds from year to year. A modest gain early pays greater dividends later. To that end, Koch is trying to make 4% a target for growth.

Comey Wasn’t Investigating Trump — But Look Who Said He Was


There are a number of important takeaways from today’s Comey hearings, but one of the big ones elaborated on a point I hit yesterday in discussing Comey’s prepared statement: Trump was never under FBI investigation during the time that Comey headed the FBI, Comey personally told Trump that three times, and Trump grew increasingly frustrated that Comey wouldn’t clear the “cloud” over his head by publicly saying so. Indeed, Trump’s explanation to Lester Holt of why he fired Comey is entirely consistent with this.

But with Comey’s repeated and emphatic testimony that Trump was not under investigation, we have some new revisionist history: wildly backtracking liberals and Democrats claiming that nobody ever said Trump was under FBI investigation. And this is simply untrue. Here’s a sampling of what Democrats, liberals, and the media were saying back when Comey was privately reassuring Trump that he wasn’t under investigation:



Lol nice bump goose pappodop’s first interview with the fbi was in January 2017 solid dig at, um, GQ though. Points!

Also still looking for the gospel tribunes apology for their blatant lie. I guess they’ll just settle their debts with Jesus

For the record that reporter did delete the original tweet, sent two more explaining his faux pas (that have a combined 300+ RTs, not 14.) so in answer to the question at the title of the thread- I guess that guy owns up to his mistakes huh?

On the other hand we have loose goose who refuses to apologize for posting obvious bullshit lies in the shooting thread who refuses to even acknowledge his error and hides from it instead. That’s a solid perch to be self righteous from.

I wish Loose held his preferred sources to the same standard.

I also do not think he knows what "fake news" is, and since he does not know the difference between an op-ed and news, this is of no surprise.
