This is a real headline on Yahoo! News:
Who's writing this s***? Michelle Obama?
The author of the original article, some crackpot named Roy Barnes, vilifies criticism of President Obama. He writes: "Being against a president over his policies is one thing, but being petty over everything Obama says and does reflects the mean-spiritedness of many in the conservative movement."
Because Barnes and the rest of the rabid Left never, ever mocked Emperor Chimpy McBushitlerburton in a mean-spirited way, right?
Well here's the thing about Yahoo! "news", anybody can write for them, even I did at one point. See, they bought Associated Content where anyone who wants to can publish articles they've written and now yahoo can take them and post them as "news". I stopped writing for AC when they stopped offering to pay me, which coincidentally was when they got bought by yahoo - suddenly well researched articles from a non-leftist perspective were no longer something they were interested in. Over the winter the AC award for political writing went to a guy who made gratuitous use of the word "teabagger" and repeatedly called Sarah Palin stupid & crazy.
I've complained repeatedly to Yahoo about the liberal/leftist slant of their "news." Of course, one can't avoid it if one uses Yahoo.
If I had to pay for Yahoo I most certainly wouldn't. But as an early adapter I've got two long-standing email accounts with them.
And, to retain our liberties, we citizens have to remain attentive and "mean" to those who would curtail our freedom and ruin us economically.
