Drudge and GOP attack machine caught again

Posted By on Thu, Sep 20, 2012 at 11:26 AM

It probably won't shock you to learn that the Drudge Report can be fed craftily edited bullshit and put it out for the Republican Party to counter damaging things like the Mitt Romney 47 percenter speech. It probably won't shock you to learn that as soon as Drudge spews, the Republican Party of Arkansas and other parts of the GOP organ can reliably be counted on to respew the dishonestly edited bullshit on Twitter and elsewhere

Happened again this week with the infamous 14-year-old 'redistribution' audio.

Politico explains. NBC bothered to get the entire videotape, where the full context presents a much different story than Drudge/GOP spin. (PS — As others have noted, Romney is a redistributionist at heart, too. Unless he's ready to disavow the graduated income tax, Social Security and Medicare.)

  • Trump immigration protest at LR: Quick and fierce

    It was not even 24 hours ago that Sophia Said, director of the Interfaith Center; City Director Kathy Webb and others decided to organize a protest today of Donald Trump's executive order that has left people from Muslim countries languishing in airports or unable to come to the US at all — people with visas, green cards,a  post-doc graduate student en route to Harvard, Google employees abroad, families. I got the message today before noon; others didn't find out until it was going on. But however folks found out, they turned out in huge numbers, more than thousand men, women and children, on the grounds of the state Capitol to listen to speakers from all faiths and many countries.
