Didn't stop Obama, won't stop Clinton. Good luck in 2024 repubs.
Freeman,Thank you for attempting to present all sides of the
issue.We report, you decide...Thanks again!
It's always interesting to read what other news media are saying, but why
not print an accurate account of what took place in the hearings? Why rely on
other papers? Why not print the facts? Who. What. Where. When. How. Leave the
"why" to the editorial writers and to the readers. With sufficient
facts, don't you think that your readers have sufficient education to
understand what happened?
Desperate times call for wacky methods by the extreme right.
@mike While I understand your point and do think this was rather
weak journalism I would also point out it is actually in the opinion section.
George,What was the opinion of the writer? Recycling opinions of
other newspapers in not "opinion". Are we to assume that Mr. Stevenson
is not a paid journalist? Are we to assume that he is exempt from the rules of
journalism? Are we to assume that the Deseret News is exempt from printing
facts, when those facts make Obama uncomfortable? The opinion
section requires an opinion. ALL opinions should be based on facts. Readers
should demand that there be opinions in an opinion article and that those
opinions be supported by facts.
Since when has the right cared about facts? They will use a fact if it helps
with their argument while at the same time ignoring facts if it contradicts the
same argument. The 47% thing comes to mind....47% don't pay income tax
fact. Although most of those people are elderly, war vets, millionaires (yes
millionaires), or hard working people that don't make enough to pay federal
income taxes but work full time. But they ignore that and say "they are
takers", "living off the government", "freeloaders". To say
the right cares about "facts" as Mike says is hogwash.
When the Rebubs tell an untruth they are rightly called liars. When the Dems
lie, it's a radical right wing scheme to discredit them. The looney left
has a predictable defense, shoot the messenger. If Bush were responsible for
Benghazi, the US would have been brought to a halt. Ms. Clinton said it happened
long ago, forget about it. Yet the Dems are still blaming Bush for everything
except the failure of the Yankees to win the world series. But they may come up
with a theory about a broad right wing conspiracy to punish liberal NY.
