BU$H/FOX breeds a more dangerous fanaticism

Postby jonnygothispen » Mon Jul 28, 2008 12:00 pm

Here's something I wish the Isthmus would go after with the same fervor they chase "truthers" for. I think this is a FAR more serious problem than batty, shirtless, frisbeeists who think 9/11 was an inside job...

Police: Man shot churchgoers over liberal views

Can you clarify your assertion that Isthmus fervently chases "truthers", other than citing one article written several years ago whose author you attacked? Before you start quoting forons, let's be clear here: The Daily Page Forum does not = Isthmus.

Does Isthmus only write about 'serious problems'? I thought they wrote about 'divergent viewpoints' in the Madison community, or something like that.

Isthmus journalists fervently chasing truthers? Paranoid, much? Did you forget to get up and leave the theater after the X-Files movie ended, jonny?

Here's something I wish the Isthmus would go after with the same fervor they chased "truthers" for in one article a couple years ago...and like some of Isthmus staff barely did on the daily page...

Tragic? Yes. Local? No.

If there's a rash of anti-liberal-church violence in Dane County, I'm sure Isthmus will be all over it.

Seriously, how much farther are you going to reach to continue your inane "truther" campaign?

And you think I'm out of touch?
Why did you pull that one out?

I just thought these were easily more important issues. I thought the Isthmus could've better served themselves by actually having a debate about the varying scientific reports as a feature article in regards to how people in the community are reacting to it instead of using the grassy knoll approach.

Not that it isn't awful -- of course, it is -- but so far this is small potatoes compared to the master of them all, Ronald Reagan. The blowback from his kind of "government is the enemy" demagoguery, was Oklahoma City.

Of course, things are still developing...[shudder]
