What do you think? Should news sources be rated? Should there be a "consumer guide" to news sources which ranks their accuracy and thoroughness? Or is it better to just leave the "caveat emptor" in place?

Should there be requirements in order to use the word "news" in the name of a program?

This is getting embarrassing, and not for me. I didn't say anything of the sort. You have me mixed up with someone else.

Yeah, it's pretty bad when you tell someone that you didn't say something and they still insist that it was you, and continue to post snarky comments to you.

"Sure...here they ar...um...nah...I'll post them after we see your extensive list of rich people who don't work and all the non-Christians who signed the Declaration of Independence. ; )"

What does this post have in connection to the subject of this thread? Or is it simply a diversionary tactic?

Somebody who usually writes needling and badgering posts got confused. Hoist with her own petard.

BTW. I like your jingle bells siggy!

Much like the gossip rags for sale displayed by the check-out register.

Yes it does refer to a diversionary tactic...one too often employed by our friends on the left, as was illustrated in the posted exchange...albeit to the wrong person. ; )
