Are the new outrage, apparently spearheaded by the NYT. The only problem is that Obama signed the purchase order. Smiley

Bring me my Broadsword and a clear understanding.
Get up to the roundhouse on the cliff-top standing.
Take women and children and bed them down.
Bless with a hard heart those that stand with me.
Bless the women and children who firm our hands.
Put our backs to the north wind.
Hold fast by the river.
Sweet memories to drive us on for the motherland.

As much as I complain about "social media news", if it wasn't for people across the political spectrum sitting in their basements and investigating stuff like this, the truth would never come to light, the NYT wouldn't have made a half-assed correction, and they would still be Nikky Haley's curtains.

It really makes you wonder how much of the news from say 40 years ago, when it was only "the big three" on TV, and the major papers, was lies / manipulation. I mean, even if there were people tracking the stuff down, how would they get the truth out there? You'd pretty much have to write a magazine article or a book and hope that it got published months later, when everyone forgot about the lie, or had already had the lie repeated so much that they believed it, regardless of new evidence.

Having lies like this exposed hours after they are published makes up for a lot of the wacko stuff on the interwebz.

ETA: In fact of late, I've been wondering how much of the Watergate investigation was true and how much was made up, given Woodward's new book being torn to shreds regarding facts and anonymous sources.

I agree with Ben.

But why the flock does the Sec of Education need an official residence?

US ambassador to the UN, not SecEd.

Although Betsy DeVos probably needs the curtains just as much if not more than Nikki Haley due to all the leftards going apeshit over her being SecEd

DeVos needs the bullet-proof version.

I have wondered that as well.  On one hand, I don't know if those people were quite as openly biased as they are now.  On the other hand, I think there is quite a bit we never heard.

Which used to be characteristic of civilized people. From what I've gathered from my parents and grandparents, my great-grandparents were extremely biased. Not against blacks, necessarily -- more like, against everyone who wasn't them. BUT ... it was never discussed or demonstrated outside the privacy of the immediate family. I was also told that in public the greats were unfailingly extremely polite -- to everyone.
