2. Good, but Anderson, they've been doing this same thing for decades.
Why is he just noticing now?

7. At Least He Did Something Commendable
Edited on Fri Nov-05-10 11:07 AM by mazzarro
Where are the Dems? That is the question for me. These are the types of BS someone in the DNC should be out and about condemning load and vociferously and not just leave it to the WH alone to counter!

12. Dems are condemning it, on the networks they are allowed to appear.
That really isn't the problem.

The problem is Faux, hate radio and the GOP, the echo-sphere of faux reality. It's the media's job to debunk all of it, immediately. I hope Anderson understands that now.

4. Related Thread: Rachel Maddow : Lying Right Wing Echo Chamber
http://www.democraticunderground.com/discuss/duboard.ph...

Rachel makes the case that the "facts" pushed by the Right Wing Noise Machine can never be debunked for those who are caught up in that echo chamber.

They create their own world of "facts." and debunking attempts from outside the RWNM are seen as "lies"

5. Most of this is repeating what the right wing is saying; very little on the truth. He is
in effect helping them spread their story. Not everyone tunes in at the same time so when they hear all that and his repeating it(before he make his point) it will have the effect of amplifying the lie.

8. Andrew Card is an asshat
by accusing Cooper of fanning the flames.
I'm glad Carville set the record straight by stating that it was Bachman who instigated the unsubstantiated report up with her answer to Anderson Cooper's legitimate question concerning cost cutting.

11. looks like Bachman is still "hypnotized" it's as if she's not even having a conversation with
the reporter, just using the media spot as an opportunity to roll out the latest lies and propaganda talking points from the RW noise machine.

14. On some sick level, you have to admire the RW's determination.
No Lie is too big.
No Truth is immune to obfuscation.
No Douchebag is beyond national celebrity.

15. I agree it is a very very sick level.
But I can't admire it. I don't admire even more the fact that far too many everyday Americans fall for it. That is the part that bothers me most.

16. The sad fact is the RW does not care...their purpose is already served.
The people who get all their information from Drudge, Limbaugh, Red State, Beck, Savage, Faux Noise, etc. will NEVER hear any different. It has already become de facto truth in their world and nothing is ever going to shake them free of it.

This should be illegal. Yes, we have freedom of speech, but there are limits to it such as screaming "FIRE!" in crowded theaters or public places or making death threats against a sitting president. Yet here we are, with a massive, coordinated and concentrated segment of the media dedicated to propaganda that has been actively hurting the country since its inception. The people responsible for this should be held accountable...like there is any chance at all of THAT concept (accountability) returning to American life any time soon...

19. So Glad This Video Is Here... My Neighbor Just Came Over And Asked Me
about this. Seems her sister is visiting and is one of the RW idiots, and SHE IS NOT. She wanted to know if I had any concrete evidence to about this. So, I came here. I sent here the clip from SNOPES and now this video.

Thanks for posting this, it's even MORE meaningful when seen up close and personal. And HOW Cooper explains it is even better!

18. where have you been all this time?
Why isn't this kind of blatant lying exposed all the time? They've done nothing but lie. Because the 4th estate has sold us out aside from MSNBC. But ABC? NBC? CBS?

21. How else are the republicans going to win elections? They lie. Period.
I heard the jobs report today on a local LA station- they said 150,000 jobs were created last month. Above and beyond the estimate- but hey, they lie about how no jobs are being created. The only way the repubs took back the house was to lie lie lie.
Unfortunately, they have a base that believes them n/t.

22. Hopefully Obama can come to some compromise with these liars lies ...
... maybe he can admit to some of the lies and they'll retract some.

24. Unfortunately, many people will go to their deaths believing this nonsense.
In fact, I bet I go to my local and hear this story weeks from now from some barstool republican.

They'll never hear of the debunked story because they don't stray outside the AM radio/Fox News bubble. Limbaugh, Hannity, and Beck don't do retractions when they spread lies like this because they already knew it was bogus when they "reported" it.

Those who do hear the truth won't believe it because it comes from "the lamestream media".

It's been said that we're a country so divided because of misinformation, and I believe when they say "don't believe everything you read on the internet", they especially mean those anonymous emails that show up in your inbox without a link to a credible source.

Democrats, beginning with Howard Dean, mastered social networking to rally voters, but Republicans have the emailed internet hoax down to a fine science.

27. Thank you, Anderson
Thanks for telling the TRUTH....something the GOP knows nothing about. Their lies, corporate, personal and foreign money BOUGHT the House. Thank God they did not succeed in the Senate. I feel for the pitiful Americans that believe one word they say. In my mind moar republicans are traitors.
