The people on the right who are spiking the ball right now should smarten up and exercise some restraint, because even though the coin toss on this one went their way it's just a matter of time before the real thing comes along again. Maybe by tomorrow.

This time the freak was the accuser, next time the freak might be the accused.

The lesson being that there's nothing wrong with letting such stories sit for a couple days before casting your vote.

DUMB


That's not what happened here. Give me a break. This story checked off all of the media's checkboxes of oppression, racial division and MAGA hate. They desperately wanted this story to be true and they elevated it to a nation wide story because it so confirmed all of their bias.

I agree.

The problem is that tech is speeding everything up.

Speed kills.

Objectively speaking, the story was, if true, one of nationwide interest. So the media ran it. End of story.

And when facts emerged showing the story was not true, they ran that, too -- and are still running it.

Your projected biases -- "checkboxes of oppression," and "desperately wanted the story to be true" -- are just that: projections. Period

When the left is wrong it is admitted and moved on from, right wing conspiracy idiocy never dies. Just another difference between left and right.

You are a moron. Uberkuque's point has nothing to do with bias, its a simple fact.
