Skip to comments.Fools Rush In (wow, what a great article!)
Posted on 11/08/2015 7:01:48 AM PST by cotton1706
Once again the corporate media tars a conservative candidate and those who should know better rush in without waiting at least 24 hours for the half-truths and lies to unravel. This week the target was Dr. Ben Carson and the reason and charge were patent: Heâs a Black Republican so obviously honest and sincere the media wolves tried to knock him out of contention by claiming he lied. This time Iâll spare those pundits who fell for it. If you are a naÃ¯ve dummy, someone ought to point that out publicly. Fair warning -- next time I wonât hold back. You canât attack the media as dishonest most days and then uncritically accept -- even for a few hours -- their âbombshellsâ. Keep your skepticâs hat on for heavenâs sake. On the one hand thereâs what I call âthe white togaâ conservatives who flee their colleagueâs side as soon as the wolves approach to prove their own spotless moral perfection. On the other hand there are the conservatives who fall for every claim against their own even when they should know better. It almost makes you wish you were a Democrat whose media pals emulate Helen Keller at even the strongest proofs of wrongdoing. (Hillary didnât drool or faint during her Congressional appearance even though caught out in big lies so they say she nailed it, for example.)
This week the fools rushed in -- if however briefly -- when both CNN and Politico attacked Dr. Ben Carson.

A two word reply is all that is needed to completely negate the low achievement box top major MSM reporting on the respected doctor: Barack Obama.
Oh! I though you were going to say FU. Same thing I guess.
Perhaps if the MSM had given Zero, who has lots to hide, the same scrutiny the USA might have avoided the total chaos we are in now.
Sweet Clarice lays it out so even the most dedicated Trump supporters can see the error of their ways. Maybe. Lol.
The left just ignores dirt on their candidates, even if it is true, they circle the wagons. Of course, they have the MSM on their side.
Think now, Hillary has had one phony debate that was planned to make her look good.
Our side subjects itself to a nauseating amount of these stupid debates with too many people.
While we have to bash our candidates and the candidates have to fight each other just to weed the field, Hillary gets a free pass and is already running for POTUS.
With the time spent adding remarks to the title, you might have fixed the apostrophes in the excerpt before posting.
“With the time spent adding remarks to the title, you might have fixed the apostrophes in the excerpt before posting.”
That’s apparently some new Free Republic update which changes quotation marks, etc., to odd symbols. Very annoying.
I understand they’re working on it. The temporary fix is to delete apostrophes and quotation marks from text that has been copied and then type them back in.
In before the “Carson is not conservative” loons
Yep. For example, Erick Erickson has pretty much ended his career. Pretty stupid to piss off 90% of your audience by making mindless attacks on both Mr Trump and Dr Carson.
When is someone going to come forward with a story about a hair and a coke can?
Carson isn’t getting Borked, he is getting Thomased.
Carson is getting Thomased, the black version of getting Borked!
Good comparison. We might say it was "Borking" if he was being attacked for his political positions. However, given that his political positions are quite mainstream, they're left to exaggerate or fabricate an issue out of something in his life.
What you can do is copy the text to Notepad and do a Change All.
Also, judicious use of the "Preview" button. When I quoted your post, it messed up your apostrophe. I had to fix it.
I'll take your word for it!
I'm checking my preview more carefully these days, too.
But why are you picking on this poster for a problem everyone posting at FR is experiencing? He’s free to add to the caption as others do, without having to correct an error that’s within the FR system. Thread after thread after thread contains the same problem without everyone fixing it.
I was expressing an opinion, in a roundabout manner, about putting comments in the title. I am very annoyed by that. I suppose we’ll be getting “trigger warnings” any day now, as if we are not competent to read an article and decide what we think about it on our own.
