Posted on 07/01/2014 12:31:17 PM PDT by Catsrus
I just caught the tale end of Rush's program and he mentioned the pastor who alleges the Cochran campaign paid blacks to vote in the MS runoff. Said he will have audio on tomorrow's show.
FR’s been talking about this on seven threads today.
So, what’s your point? I didn’t read any threads about Rush mentioning this. Yes, there are numerous threads about the vote buying, but not that Rush mentioned it.
Rush is behind by about 48 hours.
Foxnews hasn’t even mentioned it.
What a disgrace
$15 per vote! What, no 40 ouncer of Olde English 800 as well?
Thad Cochran Paid For Black Votes Says Baptist Pastor
That’s “OE8C” on the street.
Story broke at 9 pm yesterday.
Hey, love that can-do attitude ya got!
Good! The GOPe has tried to make it go away, tried to declare Cochran their candidate, the 'nothing to see here, move along' tactic. We all need to keep it front and center until Chris files. Harder for them to stop Chris with the world watching.
Better late than never I guess. Sean is now talking about it on his radio program. It is finally going viral. He is going to do a report on his tv show tonight also.
“He is going to do a report on his tv show tonight also.”
Thank goodness. Foxnews has been silent all day.
My findings several years ago were that I could not rely on getting news from FNC or Drudge. So, no longer watch FNC at all, except for excerpts online.
Drudge? He’s an entertainment-world guy primarily.
There’s a big difference between Freepers hashing out raw, unchecked data and Rush presenting it on his show. Rush is smart, and wants to make sure the information is solid before his name and reputation are attached. Hang in there!
Thank you, that was my point when I posted this. Rush also joked that the Republicans should have done this a long time ago to get the black vote. LOL
Everybody needs to be talking about this.FR leads the charge again.
He would know because pumping money into churches is one way used by Democrats to get out the black vote.
Glad you weren’t among the Founding Fathers. Can’t imagine what words of wisdom you would have imparted to pump up the troops.
Ugh, that Jamie Dupree guy is on Sean’s radio program and he said he read about this in the Clarion and poo poos on McDaniel. I don’t like this guy at all.
These gloomers would have hated Reagan. He was unfailingly optimistic. That was a great part of ability to lead.
We need to keep a tally of those who actively or tacitly approve the shenanigans.
Have Gowdy or Gohmert or Cruz or anybody else stood up and denounced this behavior?
Dupree has always been a commie/useful idiot.Screw him and his ilk.
Obviously, like those who call Rush simply an entertainer, you never visit Drudge.
Statement I saw from Cruz I took as “damning with faint praise.” But, that’s just me.
McCain (spit) otoh, could not contain his excitement over thinking that the TP had been beaten back.
I didn’t say anything about confidence, only that Rush isn’t going to jump on anything on air until he vets the information and its sources. These details are still very fresh and still developing.
Why the slam?
Because, from your assertion it’s easy to determine that you haven’t visited Drudge, yet you complain.
Hope requires faith, not logic.
Drudge Report is not and should not be a primary source of news for FReepers. It is a third-tier information source that is almost entirely based on links to first and second-tier sites for his “news”. Drudge is often missing in action on many stories that are genuinely newsworthy. But World Cup soccer...that’s a continuing major news story.
Breitbart, a second-tier source, does as well or better this year as the Drudge gang.
You have no idea how often I spot-check the Drudge Report...how many page views he gets from me each day.
Enjoy your Drudge “news” source. I prefer others.
I’m not a huge Drudge Report fan either. I post news on my facebook page - just like he does - news from many sources - and yet, he is often touted as the only legitimate source - huh? His sources are available to everyone as well. As much as I like Mark Levin - he is one who thinks the Drudge Report is gospel.
Fox gets five minutes a day and the BBC World News ten minutes a day..
I listen to radio more Beck than Rush, but both.
Go to FR every day plus other select sites online.
Rev. Stevie Fielder: Thad Cochran Paid Blacks for Votes
RUSH: “A black Mississippi pastor has emerged to claim Sen. Thad Cochran’s (R-MS) campaign paid ‘thousands’ of Democrats $15 each to vote in the June 24 GOP runoff — and that he was part of the scheme. Rev. Stevie Fielder, an associate pastor at First Union Missionary Baptist Church in Meridian, Mississippi, says Cochran’s campaign ‘told me to offer blacks $15 each and to vote for Thad.’” The Cochran campaign paid for those black votes. Why didn’t the Republicans think of that sooner? If they want the black vote, apparently that’s how you do it! We got audio sound bite on that, and we’ll hold those over for tomorrow.
I don’t really understand what happened there.
The memo usually informs them to vote on Wednesday.
Someone messed up on this one.....
This broke last night, far as I know...
“I’m Lando Calrissian, you’re not”.
You’ve made the mistake most people do, thinking of Drudge as a news source. It isn’t.
Drudge is simply a news aggregator.
You’re a hard FR poster to pin down, aren’t you?
Shifty, we used to call it.
I’m sure you’d call it shifty.
Most people realize I’ve correctly analyzed you.
