    You don't say!! Well.. at least HuffPo does.

    I'd love to see how Beck, Murdoch, and Faux News get out of this one.

    May I ask why Beck deserves a thread (even a mocking one)? Maybe if we ignore him he'll just go away! :p:D

    My day is just not complete until I come here and read the daily rantings against Beck, Fox News, Christianity, or conservatives in general.:rolleyes:

    Huffpo lowering itself to Beck's ridiculous culture wars level. Nice one :rolleyes:.

    Huffington Post diarrhea rarely warrants mentioning much less basing a thread on its fiction.

    Who said anything about facts? If Glenn Beck doesn't need them, neither do we!

    They aren't known as the lunatic left for nothing. I think their cute in a way, but I prefer to see them behind one way looking glass.

    So funny then, how you guys can never address the actual issues. There should be plenty here that alarms you, instead, you merely give the impression of silent complicity. And you're calling us crazy? You birthers are calling us crazy? Wow. And if you're going to start name-calling, "racist right" sounds really good to me.

    That goes for you too, ufcgrad. I'm disappointed. If you all are going to sit there and freak out about people like Bill Ayers or Van Jones, I'd think you'd at least have something to say about this. But no- not one substantive word. I'd think you would at least want to distance yourselves from the likes of Beck, Limbaugh, etc. Instead, we get nothing. Not even a "I'm sick of idiots like this calling themselves conservative". So what are people supposed to assume about you guys?

    Just remember, baby turtles and alligators may seem cute… but they grow up.
    I was never aware that Huffpo had a standard to live up to.

    Seeing as Fox is what all the conservatives use as a source for most of their attacks, it's only logical that liberals would want to discredit them. Plus, they seem to have a pretty easy time doing it.

    Huffington Post is definitely liberal biased, but if you want to attack it, at least post some proof that they've dramatically skewed the facts in some articles.

    If it is comparable Fox, a quick Google search should result in at least half a dozen fabrications they've passed as news.

    Don't forget, Huffington Post does state that it posts "breaking news & opinion." One of Fox's defenses is that a lot of the controversial stuff in on their opinion shows.

    I think that's a very legitimate criticism to be honest. But shouldn't you be talking about the specific falsehoods in this article?

    I don't think Iscariot has a problem with the article's content.

    Afraid to do a little fact checking on your own to prove them wrong?

    Typical.

    Though, I would absolutely LOVE to see you debunk this. If you can.

    I'm not really interested in the finer points of a discussion between pots and kettles; I'm looking at the "bigger picture".
