• I didn't read the thread close enough, but still you say:

      O'Keefe is not the one making the pertinent comments, he is the one asking the questions. His credibility is of no importance in this case unless he has a chance to edit and alter or spin the content of the answer....

    • That is still a large plurality of GOP voters seeing Putin favorably. The Republican establishment may be very much against Putin, but that seems just another issue on which the base and the establishment are totally divorced. I don't think that it is a salient issue for the base, so they are...

    • Reading a comment and responding to the ideas in that comment was never your strength. All I really can do is cut and paste from my comment to see if repetition is a useful technic to reach your brain.

      you want to trust some medical reporter about the CNN Russia...

    • Oh, this one too just came to mind:

      Quotes About Pomposity

      “Whoever undertakes to set himself up as a judge of Truth and Knowledge is shipwrecked by the laughter of the gods."

    • FWIW, just one person: I never get an sense of anger from Greenwald's writing, but I often get a sense of calculated arrogance. Which seems to be quite common among those who went to NYU law school as he did, so maybe it's not his fault, just nobless oblige, listen my children to...

    • McMullins meme appeals as accurate (I admit to its initial allure myself) because we read so much news on Trump and Russia.

      But trying to beware of confirmation bias, and always trying to beware of spin and hypberbole, as even he points out there was the new Russia sanctions bill...

    • My immediate reaction which I now cannot get out of my mind

      8 Pride goeth before destruction, and an haughty spirit before a fall.
      19 Better it is to be of an humble spirit with the lowly, than to divide the spoil with the proud.

      I...

    • Yeah, what the fuck is right.

       I didn't introduce the slimy scumbag O'keefe or his minion to the conversation. I responded to a comment about the tape and said, in affect, that it appears that Bonifield actually intended to say what we heard him say and that even though he was talking to...

    • Kat, what "truth" do you see me stretching when I say that a producer in a news dept. of CNN knows something about the news dept. at CNN? Your comment is the ironical ridiculous stretch. 

    • Oh come one lulu you are really stretching the truth here. CNN is a huge organization with many divisions. Contrary to right wing spin it employs conservatives to liberals. This producer was in the medical division. I wouldn't trust the medical reporters to know squat about Russia just as I...

    • WTF, Lulu? O'Keefe is a sociopathic liar who tries to set up the enemy from every side. Do I give a fuck whether O'Keefe asked or answered questions? He tried to set up for slander the CNN reporter in a boat a few years back, he slandered ACORN out of existence. It's not whether he asks or...

    • O'Keefe is a known liar. Anything that comes out of his shop has to be verified by an outside source. Trump is a known liar. Republicans are known liars. The media sucks. Intelligence agencies lie. Skepticism is wise. I'll wait until other sources back up O'Keefe's nonsense. He is not...

    • The CNN guy is working within CNN as a reporter. That puts him in a position to know something about CNN culture as well as its management and what they expect and what they demand of their journalists. But maybe he is full of it. Maybe he will get fired.

       I see that it was not O'Keefe...

    • No, The Observer is ironically Jared Kushner's ex-paper, now run by his brother-in-law who seems to hate him and Trump, thus a possibility of non-Trump-idealizing material appearing.

      As for my "endorsement" of The Observer, no, I did not endorse it. I presume we are all adults here and...

    • The CNN guy had no tie to the Russia investigation. He comments hold no value. 

      Edit to add:

      What is the name of the person doing the interview?

    • James O'Keefe is a guy with questionable methods. A crony interviewed an Atlanta based health editor for CNN and got some snippets that sound interesting. But given O'Keefe as a source, the comments from "CNN" cannot be trusted.

      O'Keefe is not the one making...

    • It seems that corrections were made to the stories in question. The stories do not mean that Russia did not attempt to hack the election.   

      I see no claim that Russia is in fact innocent.

      ​I find nothing that makes me link Russia did not...

    • That's a good point if you're extremely stupid and didn't process a single word that you read.

      Yeah, they found an angry response indicative of frustration. He should have restrained himself, but I can see where his angry frustration comes from. 

    • Don't know but I doubt it because I scrolled around on the sight trying to find out and could find nothing to indicate that they are.

    • Thanks for the link to The Observer.  Is this connected to the English Sunday paper also called The Observer?
