I'm amazed how often rather than having a reasoned discussion of issues, we degenerate into attack mode on others for what we don't like. Oh wait. I remember what I saw once on an old preacher's notes. Beside point 2 of his 3 points was penciled in red, "Weak point. SHOUT!"

The New York Times and the Washington Post are two of the most accurate news sources available. If you can offer any proof that the story in the times on North Korea that I posted is inaccurate, post it. I know that recognizing facts is a nearly impossible task for you, and I don't expect that you'll find anything to refute even the remotest punctuation mark of that story. The fact that this particular statement comes from you just conforms for me that the Times is a reliable, accurate news source.

This is heading towards "Black folks make unreliable newspaper folks." Who broke the Blair story? As far as I can tell, the NYT. Do you have other info on this, Jim.

Egad...not you as one obsessed with slavery as an invention by WASPs, the scoundrels! Try the below for the Washington Post and Janet Cooke (poor Jimmy) and the infamous “document,” moving The WP to fire three lately and publish a painful retraction. Then, of course, there was CBS's Dan Rather (three fired but not Rather, the consummate liar). And then there's NBC's Brian Williams and even (drum-roll) Hillary (just pick your lie for a plethora of them). Trump looks bad, too. So, what else is new?

All you have to do is just rack your brain for the memories. Lots of them out there! It's okay to imply that I'm racist if it makes your day.
