These stories seem to come out and they find themselves on a load of leftist/liberal websites all at once. However their has been no mention of this on npr, the one media outlet in the states I regard as truly reliable and sincere. I can not find anything on the New York Times website. I can not find anything on the Washington Post website. Hell, I cannot even find anything on MSNBC (the fox of the left).
So while I may be missing something I suppose on this issue (and some others that I have posted in this thread), I am starting to have doubts.
If only the left wing web site had been posting the story, I wouldn't have posted it because I'd have been dubious about the possibility of a biased source. So I clicked the link in the article to The Memphis Commercial Appeal
, which is where the site got the story from and which seems legit, with a name and place attached.
It wouldn't surprise me if the big stations aren't picking some of these up simply because these comments're getting to the point where - rather than being crazy and unusual enough to be worth some shock value or even stuck next to the water-skiing squirrel in the novelty slot, they're too common to be news any more.
After all, they're concentrating on the personalities in the GOP presidential race at the moment. More stupidity from the Teabaggers is surplus to the narrative.
The problem I am seeing here in the US is these stories come out and like Bammmm ....
They are all over the same sites .... addictinginfo, huffington etc....
With no hard evidence to back them up (in a lot of cases)...
