Another attack on DU from the right-wing
This post is currently being linked to by instapundit, a popular right-wing blog, so expect the troll levels to increase greatly!

http://powerandcontrol.blogspot.com/2005/01/over-in-moo...

Well some people just love watching a train wreck. I love watching DU.

And what do the good people at DU have to say about the CBS report on Rathergate?

Evidently there is a lot of learned helplesness going on over there
by tridim Mon Jan-10-05 03:45 PM

Well it's official, apparently CBS made up the entire Bush NG story

I've heard several newsbreaks on a few different radio stations (even AAR), and they all say that the story was and is discredited. The docs were fake and the content was fake. CBS apparently made it all up.

Rove: 1 - Truth: 0

I'm fuming mad right now. They were just busted for bribing Armstrong Williams with tax dollars, yet they still have the gall to close this story out with a mammoth lie. Sigh, I guess it's nothing new. I feel so helpless.

So he thinks the story that once was true is now being branded a lie. I am not sure what makes him feel so helpless. The truth or the fact that his beliefs are not being confirmed. Well he is a denizen of DU (1000+ posts). It could be both.

And then we have the timing is everything crowd. Why is this coming out now? The DU folks have an answer.

17. Funny This Coming Out Now

When the Armstrong Williams story was growing legs.

CBS held on to this story and then released it just when it could help the Republicans the most. Uh. Huh. It coulda happened that way. Maybe an investigation is needed. LOL.

Ya see it is all the fault of the Republican TV networks. I got proof. Well maybe not proof. I do have a statement:

18. This pisses me off!

Time to let CBS and all the other repuke networks that they've lost a viewer-though actually, I gave up on them all right after the election.

I hope everyone takes the time to do the same!

So there you have it. A Republican plot by the Republican media. Who writes their jokes? It is not a joke? Coulda fooled me.

21. Hey, it's not their fault since they are not allowed to actually

do investigative journalism. It's against pug law.

Let me see here. The investigation turns up inconvenient facts and it is not investigative journalism. Geeze. I had never looked at it that way before. Probably because I was dropped on my head as a kid. Or the whole lot of them were. Hard to imagine so many clumsy parents. Hard to imagine so many brain damaged kids. Maybe it was the brown acid. Or perhaps there are contacts missing. Like with reality.

20. You know every time I click over there to see
...what you're all on about, all I can think of is they're just a bunch of playground bullies.

Playground bullies like to pick on people:
1) Because they have serious self-esteem problems
2) They act out to get attention
3) Don't have self-worth
4) Have a low level of self-control
5) Are more likely to develop criminal behaviors
6) Have difficulty making friends
7) They make their own miserable life seem better by trying to torment others they resent for having a better life or more intellectual and social abilities.

Just ignore them. That short-circuits the satisfaction the derive with their anti-social behavior.

6. Yes.
Those that dare stand up and question the regime in DC are dangerous to the konservative movement in this country.

now, I've only been thought of as 'trouble'. LOL

3. Sure, DU keeps getting attacked, but we keep growing larger and larger
I don't really care, they can do what they want. I'm too concerned with more important issues to care about what a bunch of moronic freepers think about DU. I love it, and that's enough for me.

I just think it's funny that they see us as this big of a threat to constantly draw attention to this site. I hope they continue to drive hits to us! :thumbsup:

5. All snarky attitude, no substance
Hey,

Any comparison among bloggers notes that the more pro-Bush they are, the less substance and the more snark. Atrios and Kos might show attitude but they almost always stress reason and evidence. Reynolds, Sully, and Kaus are *all* attitude; reason and evidence are only relevant as opportunities to show the world how snarky they can be.

Here we see ABSOLUTELY NO ACKNOWLEDGMENT by Reynolds that the substance of the guard allegations is unchallenged and only *some* evidence is disputed.

CYD

8. I'd be even more pissed at CBS if they had caused 1300 American
men and women to die for a lie... approx. 10,000 to be permanently mained, 10's of thousands to be permanently mentally scarred... spent a couple hundred billion on a revenge war (instead of putting it into alternative energy research) brought Iraq into a civil war and a few other things that I don't have the time to look up right now... oh, one more, if CBS had outed a CIA member whose job was to counter the proliferation of WMD.... now that would do it for me.

These are some sick, sick people. They water, prune, and fertilize the log in their own eyes whilst they pick at the speck in others.

12. Letting off some stress?!
It seems to me that when posting some people just want to get some frustration with the system off their chests. If your not convinced reread the part about feeling helpless. Why then would someone take this view point as if an elected official were making a claim about something he had really NO IDEA about. Its not like the DU'ers were claiming there were WMD's in Iraq or anything.

13. The more attention the better...
It's true that there are dumb asses on both sides of the great divide. Our job is to make sure that the sun shines on the radically stupid side of the right because they are not going to give up on pointing and and magnifying any goddam little thing they can find. Rise to the challenge. :kick:

15. First they ignore you
Then they ridicule you

Then they fight you

Then you win

We're in late stage 2, passing into stage 3. We're in for a big, big fight, but with those pesky weapons truth and justice on our side, we can't help but win.

It will be a long fall for some who have scaled the heights to become King Shit of Turd Island.

19. Why pay attention to a twit?
I don't go to their sites or listen to their s**t. When you know you are right about something you don't have to check to see if the other side likes you. Of course they don't, so why bother. It is nice to know that people who may not be sure of things, on the other side, would come here to get the truth.
