Reminds me of the Supreme Court Obamacare decision reporting

"Supreme Court declares Obamacare unConstitutional!" "Oh wait, Supreme Court declares Obamacare a tax, and Constitutional!"

I swear, if I hadn't been awakened at that point, it probably would have done it.

I love you. I'm sorry. Please forgive me. Thank you.

Like Kagan and Sotomayor were going to vote "no"

It's such an absurd system.

No wonder they get it wrong, over and over again...

This is what happens when even the MSM is pushing the agenda the United States is a democracy. A democracy is a horrible form of government, but it is vital to the advancement of socialism. It's time we the people restore our republic, the United States Constitution, the rule of law.

Oh my god!

I can't believe literally none of us picked up on this before now.

getting the stories wrong?

Are you kidding me? Misinformation, Disinformation, and Lies. And it's not accidental. Ridiculous.

WHAT will the 800lb Gorilla do...

When he's finally consumed all the Funyons, and there's nothing left to redirect everyone's attention to on the TV, from the remote he stole? WHAT will he do?

Journalists are just pissed they're losing the information war

Yes there's a lot of false information out on the internet, but there's also a lot of truth. One does not preclude the other.

These self-appointed so-called journalists believe it's their responsibility to set us straight on their brand of truth and control the narrative. They aim no less than to do our thinking for us, and rid our brains from that part which is capable of critical thought - a.k.a. the "editors" of which he spoke.

If men are good, you don't need government; if men are evil or ambivalent, you don't dare have one.

Jerk everyone's underwear up over their heads for so long....The jig is up.


It's frighting when a journalist doesn't even know where he lives.

""Democracies succeed or fail based on their journalism," said Pelley. "America is strong because its journalism is strong.""

Does he think America is a democracy? I thought it was a republic.

And if he thinks that American journalism is or has been strong anytime in the last decade, he is mistaken, and he might even be delusional.

It's hard to know if he's lying or just ignorant, but his comments prove that journalism has no intention of helping to maintain a strong republic.

Just open the box and see

My husband

Showed me this a couple of days ago as proof that the inaccuracies in their reporting is only honest mistakes...

When caught in an obvious lie..

the best way to save face is to tell the "truth" or something that resembles it. I think that is what happened.

Did anyone expect them to stick to the lie?


I try to change people every day. Do You?

while saving face most of the

while saving face most of the time, thats the problem these days, sometimes, with certain subjects you gotta stand up and say "damn, we got that one completely wrong", some subjects you cant split hairs with, because of public opinion, in my mind admitting when your wrong, IF you are wrong, is what ill respect, always, especially so, when that subject is what some people take to be fact, and then proven to be otherwise, damage is already done, only thing you can do, is correct the mistake and hope everyone who saw the "fact", see's the correction, which is what pisses me off, if they do correct themselves, i still think one or two will miss it, and spread the "fact" verbally, like its own little beast

I completely agree!
