How would you characterize Dan Rather's supposed Jerry Killian memo?
Dan Rather was on TV, not sending out unsolicited propaganda through e-mail or message boards. And weren't other networks considered to be part of the "left wing conspiracy" critical of their authenticity as well?

I'm not saying there is a correlation between being dumb and conservative, and smart and a liberal; but rather being dumb and falling for stupid shite and sending it on, and being smart and not forwarding a bunch of crap. I'm sure if I knew more uneducated liberals, they would be forwarding me all manner of ridculousnesses.
Maybe you're not hearing me.

You receive an equivalent "bunch of crap" every time you turn on the TV.

- Our path to solvency is to tax the rich.
- 1:1 tax:spendingcuts is a feasible approach to balance the budget.
- The way to prevent school shootings is to outlaw guns.
- The Middle Class has never had it this bad.
- The Personal Injury System in this country protects consumers.
- The Tea Party was founded by a bunch of radical screwballs

I could go on and on.
Point being, nothing in the above collective BS is more truthful than the wildest internet rumors out there, yet you receive this crap daily in the mainstream.

What is more problematic?
The isolated "Aliens from Mars have taken over Fort Knox" story, or "the only reason we have deficits now is because of the Bush Tax Cuts"?

and they weren't critical of the "swift boaters"?

Are you serious?

Stay on topic. We are talking about unsolicited e-mails, facebook posts, etc. Snopes, remember?

No, you're not hearing me, my question was why do I not get the unsolicited e-mails from the left? Why is it only right wing paranoid conspiracy propaganda showing up in my e-mail box?

Good thing I don't hang out in the "mainstream".

How convenient. So you'd like to focus on amateur rather than professional disinformation. I see. Why focus on disinformation touching millions of households when you can address disinformation disseminated to thousands. That topic?

So Snopes addresses only unsolicited email and facebook misinformation?

Ah. Good to know.

By listing more R's than D's, wouldn't that suggest that the site is leaning more to the Right?



I would say if it listed Lieberman and Edwards, but left out Cheney (basically the equivalent of having Palin and Ryan, but not Biden) then yes I would say it had a slightly right bias

I know that deep down inside, you are better than to fake objectivity here.

How strange.
You didn't see stories about Romney's horses, or Palin seeing Russia from her house, or the Bush Tax Cuts being only for the rich, or the Bush Tax Cuts not helping the economy in any way, or the horrors of Guantanamo, or the inhumanity of the drone program, or the rape factory that was Halliburton, or Romney did not pay taxes for 10 years, etc, etc, etc, etc, etc, etc, etc. etc, etc, etc, etc, etc. etc, etc.?

You've seen none of that?
Really?

I find your selective exposure fascinating.

Incidentally, almost all of these dutifully debunked on Snopes.
