What I’m talking about was an article I wrote a couple days ago calling out certain liberal blogs for fabricating a story about Ted Nugent. Not sensationalizing it, or using slightly misleading headlines – but blatantly fabricating a story that wasn’t true.
It wasn’t that I was defending Ted Nugent. Not at all. But I was disgusted that some liberal websites (with one in particular that was egregious) wrote a completely inaccurate story about him that wasn’t true. The truth about Ted Nugent, and conservatives in general, is bad enough that we shouldn’t have to lie about them.
That’s what they do – conservatives and the conservative media. We can’t rightfully call ourselves better if we’re willing to stoop to their level of unethical behavior in writing and journalism.
Yet shockingly, many liberals had absolutely no problem with these sites blatantly fabricating this story. I could summarize what I read, but I’ll just paste a few of the comments I ran across:
Yeah? So? HOW DOES IT FEEL? Fox and Rush have been misleading the public for years, now we have a HEADLINE that liberals actually turned the tables and did what those assholes have been doing all along.
Why even bother finger waving over this jerk? “I don’t want to have to defend him…” THEN DONT! And personally, don’t offend and insult your readers by clarifying.
If it’s OK for Rs to blatantly lie, then it should be OK for us to lie. Good for the goose…
meh. i am unmoved. Republicans lie 24/7 on Fox ‘News’. Nugent is an asshat of epic proportions (By the way on a Facebook page of over 118k this was the highest “upvoted” comment)
The Right has made an industry of lying about this President and Liberals in general. While it is wrong to spread lies about them in return, honestly…. can you blame the liberal websites for paying a little game of payback? (…this was the second highest “upvoted” comment on that same page)
Now, why would I take my time to write and condemn what other sites lied about another lier scum bag? Did you honestly run out of topics? Republicans write lies all day long about everything and you don’t see any of them condemning each other. So why would I care! Sorry, I am not moved. Give them a bit of their own medicine and see how it tastes! That will teach them.
What’s good for the goose is good for the gander. Just a little taste of their own medicine. Are we gonna do the old Romney ” their picking on me” thing
Sorry but I do not care! Turn about is fair play for this loud mouth child molester!
What goes around , comes around…
Who cares!! These racist scumbags fabricate shit on a daily basis. I say scalp this traitor on live TV for the entertainment value, anyways.
So a misleading headline, a “Grabber ” makes a site “Dishonest” ? You need to write those sites an apology. (This was written in the comments section of the article itself so I’m assuming they read it. Though I have no idea what this means.)
