Re: Talking Black (John McWhorter & Glenn Loury)

Gotta love that McWhorter turnaround. "Race doesn't matter," but now Obama has his bonafides because he attended Wright's USA of "KKK" church.

I love it when the contradictory morality of the...

Re: too good to check #1

Well, I'll try this one more time. That is not what the study did.

The study looked at the politicians elected, their positions on various subjects, and then looked at the portrayal in the news...

Re: too good to check #1

I like to do things one at a time. I'm referring at present to the argument you think is so powerful, that Media matters used guilt by association to smear the study. So powerful, you bolded the...

Re: too good to check #1

You people are so blind you can't understand what I'm saying.
Media matters uses guilt by association in their proof the science was bad.
I say "OK, a lot of people think the same of media...

Re: too good to check #1

I'm trying to see how anyone can give any credence to the argument that because the author of the study at one time got money from conservatives that therefore the study is crap. Doesn't make sense...

Re: too good to check #1

I'll have to look. I'm merely complaining about #1 at this point, which is the argumentation in the media matters post. I don't like the rhetorical devices used to discredit the study. I haven't...

What do you disagree with here:

All conservatives in think tanks are a bunch of assholes.
All people who have ever associated or received any benefit from a conservative think tank are assholes....

Re: too good to check #1

That's because you haven't read the post I responded to, or you have and you don't understand. No I don't know what the collective "you" think. How can I, or even you know that?

Re: too good to check #1

Oh yes, I think it is much more interesting to write how certain you are something is wrong when you haven't taken a moment to understand what it is. You people really go in for group think.

Re: too good to check #1

Whose smell test? We are talking about Media Matters here. There rebuttal looks pretty weak to me. In fact, it is biased and rhetorical in nature.

Aren't you the same person who claimed I brought up Media Matters, when it is the only post of three I've responded to? Talk about a Moron.

Re: too good to check #1

So you haven't even bothered to look at the original study and what they did, but got your interpretation second hand. I thought the study was clever in what they were trying to do, was unusual, and...

What is this, group think? Are you a parrot, or do you have any original thoughts.

Re: too good to check #1

Yes, you missed it. Look at the very first post on "too good to check #1" and you will see his second long diatribe is a quotation from "media matters."

Re: too good to check #1

Didn't realize it was humor. It seemed to be taking a quotation out of context and displaying it as proof of some kind. Perhaps you ought to be more clear in what you are saying, and yes, apologies...

Re: too good to check #1

I have completely forgotten the topic. What was it? It seems to be "Oh, you think differently than me and my friends so you must be an idiot."

Unlike the group think and wagon circling I see...

Re: too good to check #1

I read the quotation he put up as evidence supporting his POV. And I see at the very beginning the worst kind of factual reporting. Guilt by association. "Previously they received funding from...

Re: too good to check #1

It depends on what that means. If a chip on ones shoulder is a reaction to set of hypocritical beliefs one is forced to accept and support, then yes. If a chip on ones shoulder is merely a bitter...

Re: too good to check #1

That's the best excuse I've heard yet. How about it: one solid clear point. Oops, that's the sound of silence and vacuous meaningless posts.

Well, I think it means exactly what I think it means. I didn't use it correctly, but if you want to argue form over substance fine.
