So what's the argument here Buck? That Touré might be a truther or that he won't be slammed at Little Green Footballs? Is this a critique of Touré/CNN or just a way of rubbing something in our face and LGF?

Gus, did you know he was a truther?

My point is in the post. Did you read what I wrote?

I have never heard of Toure'. I don't watch MSNBC either. But, after seeing that article Lidane posted about CNN and practically everything on Fox News, nothing surprises me about any network or reporter any more.

Well maybe if MSNBC was covered every minute by someone like MM, and you read that site, you wold know.

Here he is (ironically) calling Trump a kook for being a birther.

9/11 Troofers and Birthers are both idiots, and it doesn't matter what network they're on. Idiocy is idiocy.

Agreed. But we need to know who they are...

Buck, you don't seem to appreciate the irony. Fox News presents itself as the voice of patriotic, conservative America. 9/11 conspiracy theorizing was presented for years as the province of the loony left. Even Glenn Beck has said that 9/11 conspiracy people are "dangerous." Yet Fox News lets Napolitano contribute and from what I understand he's either appeared on Beck's show or substitute hosted his radio program. That's rather ironic, to put it mildly.

While it's good that people like Toure are exposed, it seems rather unrealistic for you to expect the people who use Napolitano to attack Fox's credibility to devote the same time and energy to attacking MSNBC for having Toure as a contributor. Those people have many other problems with Fox besides Napolitano, and discrediting Fox has a higher priority for them than discrediting MSNBC.

On the other hand, nothing is keeping YOU from shouting your expose of Toure from the rooftops.

Kid's heads are filled with so many nonfacts that when they get out of school they're totally unprepared to do anything. They can't read, they can't write, they can't think. Talk about child abuse.
