Conservatives cannot bring themselves to even consider that they might be wrong about anything. So they only watch and read conservative media which makes a fortune feeding them crap they want to hear. Drudge, Rush, Breitbart, Colter, Murdoch...make a fortune telling them stuff they want to hear. Doesn't matter if it's the truth.
Conservative media are the modern day snake oil salesman.
if Snopes was wrong for saying that pic was the actress, the claim it was his mother is just as wrong bc dissimilar features and not a scintilla of evidence.
War on Christmas
Obama meets pirate instead of Netanyahu
Obama watched the ambassador die on tv
Obama gave guns to Mexicans to pass gun control
Hillary faked her concussion and blood clot.
Batman's bad guy is named after Romney's company.
The polls are skewed.
The press pushed Romney so Obama would get an easier opponent
The press pushed McCain so Obama would get an easier opponent
Obama's dog has is own plane trip
Obama took god off coins
Obama didn't write his books
Shady foreigners paid or Obama's tuition
Obama is a communist, socialist, nazi, Muslim, atheist who hates America and white people.
The Dems listen to pollsters and advertise executives.
The Birth Cert did not raise questions. It really did not.
quote:Until the LFBC was produced, the only requisite "conspiracy" would have been amongst the three Dunhams -- SAD and her parents. We've discussed this before. Point being Snopes had basis to issue doubt, but not disproof.
I mean you would have to assume so many people involved in such a deep conspiracy
quote:Dissimilar features? If true that is the basis Snopes should use to debunk the thing. In fact, Snopes apparently found no evidence to support your assertion. So instead Snopes insisted the pics were of Marcy Moore. Snopes assertions that identical women are represented in images of the supposed SAD and Marcy Moore literally require an observer to make mountains out of molehills.
Got news for you, if Snopes was wrong for saying that pic was the actress, the claim it was his mother is just as wrong bc dissimilar features and not a scintilla of evidence.
you always talk about how the majority of the country is more left than this or that. do you apply the "middle is the median of the population" belief to a discussion like this thread about bias?

Conservatives are so butt hurt from losing so many elections, they've become so paranoid that they think everyone is against them. TV media, print media, pollsters, poll analyzers, betting websites, Columnists, movies, tv shows, actors, snopes, political fact checkers, scientists. Anyone and everything that disagrees with them. Even conservative media like Frum or Brooks. And when evryone is right and conservatives are proven wrong, then they claim it's a conspiracy. It's rigged. It's bought and paid for.
I think many posters here are thinking more of how something or someone ranks as compared their political philosophy. Perhaps more of political theory scale.
quote:Sometimes Snopes makes an educated guess as to whether an urban legend is true, false, partial, or don't know. They clearly state that. From what I recall around that time they looked at all of the "evidence" the birthers had about Obama being born in Kenya, and balanced that against official documents, the president's word, etc and decided that the Birthers' claims as well as their "evidence", were bunk.
Snopes was addressing those claims with its own guesses.
Snopes was framing its guesses as fact. That is not the nature in which Snopes represents itself. Its guesses were not fact. In the end, its guesses turned out to be correct.
That does not in any way justify its original position sans evidence as a supposed impartial debunker.
You mean any evidence other than the fact the woman pictured is either S.A.D. or her physically identical doppleganger?
Any evidence other than S.A.D.'s physical appearance, known irresponsible behavior, known relationships, and the period nature of the photos? No.
Do I know for a fact those pics are of S.A.D.? No.
Do I know for a fact they are not Marcy Moore?
Without question they are not Marcy Moore.
Not a chance in hell.

most on this board discuss politics from a defined scale. that's why i had to ask
Then again IMO, truth knows no party.
There was a time when the Dem Party let the extremists have too big of a voice in the party. And they lost 5 of 6 elections. Now the extremists in the Rep Party are seen as the voice of the party and they've lost 5 of 6 popular vote elections.
As has been stated above, the crazies in the republican party have gotten the podium. They say a lot of stupid things. Hell there were people here defending the moron that said that womens body can shut it down after rape. Many in the republican party talk of creationism and eschew evolution.
quote:Many of them are. That's not paranoia. It's demonstrable fact.
