On Partisan Stooge, Thom Hartmann, Suggesting that a 2-Time Winner of the Peabody Award and an Individual Who Has Consistently Criticized Presidents From Both Parties Would Risk His Entire Career and Reputation to Create Out of Whole Cloth a Quote Simply to Tarnish a Fellow (Lyndon Baines Johnson) Who Everybody Already Knew was a Racist

Exceedingly bizarre and yet par for the course.

Hartmann is one of the legion of those on the left who match Limbaugh, Hannity, etc in quality and veracity of argument.

Yeah, now that Olbermann has committed the unpardonable sin and gone back to sports.

Hartmann comes across like text from a Democratic party campaign ad.

You know, those whose job is to make the Dems look good, even if it includes lying. It's certainly not principled, what Hartmann is doing and it isn't any more journalism than what Limbaugh (identical to Hartmann in quality of content) does.

And yes, the same is true of Republican campaign material.

One goes to Hartmann, Limbaugh, and their ilk not to find out what is what, but to find out what hardline idealogues and partisans think.
