    What's in the link, what matters, is the part where they reconstruct the original order of what was said, with the cut stuff put back in.
    And then they take great effort to misrepresent what was being accused.

    How partisan they are doesn't matter for a case like this.
    Perhaps not, but misrepresenting what is being accused is pathetic.

    It's not like quoting from a transcript and bolding stuff leaves much room for spin. You can make up your own mind on the matter, although, of course, but looking at the transcripts we have, yet again, a case of CMP deceptively editing a video and then the full story being rather mundane.
    No you don't. You have CMP saying that abortion doctors are changing their procedure (meaning the steps that are taken in that particular procedure, which is illegal) when they extract a killed fetus in order to ensure that the parts desired are intact. You then have Media Matters saying that DMP is accusing them of changing the actual procedure itself (meaning the METHOD of extraction), which is a complete and total lie.
    That's what

        Make a case for that then by pointing at the full transcript, because we both know that this is too fine a distinction to parse solely from your recollection skewed by the hack job of a first video

            We have strayed far off topic. But...Republicans don't think you can get rich, but that with hard work you can make a decent living. I know a lady, 4 kids, different dads, could work but she doesn't, the fathers are bums, she gets money from the State. So she gets money for being irresponsible. Not only that, she got ten thousand dollars for her earned income credit last year. She lives with her mom and dad who help with the kids. This sort of thing happens all over. And I know this lady personally. I'm well aware of her situation. Republicans want to cut services for irresponsible people who do nothing.
            As for the Prez, he's a collectivist. He actually believes that If you own a business, you are obligated to pay the State back and redistribute the wealth. And where does a lot of that money go? Not to our vets. They go to people like the lady I described. Able to work but are lazy and irresponsible and we, the money makers of America, are paying for her to have kids from different men and live with her parents paying nothing but still she gets a monthly check and a huge tax return even though she pays zero taxes. Liberal logic at its best.
            I agree we are off topic, and if you want to make a new thread, I will reply to you there. Otherwise, I don't wish to derail any further.
