He did, he spouted some baseless nonsense about a subject he knows nothing about. The right wingers not only understood it but accepted it as gospel 'cause its what they want to hear.

You know this.

The truth has always been out there, it's just a matter of what you want to hear.
That's only really true for people like right wingers and, I don't know, perhaps people with Down's Syndrome ...

The truth is what you want to hear so what you want to hear must be the truth.

A curious phenomenon to those who can think.

Al Jazeera English is basically made up from ex BBC guys. In fact the network was started after BBC closed its middle east Arabic network down around the time of the first gulf war. Al Jazerra english employed most of those correspondents and presenters. Right now they have more reporters in all countries than any other network in the world.
The fact that the US military didn't like them because they had reporters filing from these surgical strike sites during the gulf war that all western media was banned from or had no way of getting to.
This of course didn't look good when compared to the video game like images the pentagon released of smart bombs destroying targets full of bad guys. The pentagon controlled the media during the middle east conflicts because it had learn't a hard lesson from Vietnam and the news media's coverage of that. The fact that Bin Laden used them to file media releases too, was he knew it would not be doctored or trashed.
So as a news service it gives a view of stories all around the world not filtered or show bias such as the US networks do.
So it has a different style altogether, for instance say a horrific crime has been commited like the Indian rape case or the Ohio rape case for that matter. It will just report the story and not have a panel discussing how they will execute those charged with the crime. It's a totally different mindset. It's just news without political comment, panel discussions will be on issues of the day and possible outcomes. It works on BBC principles, which is rated as one of the best news services in the world. You can only benefit from that, not these BS opinions like Limbaugh & co. You may not like all the stories but its a true picture of the world as it is including both sides of the argument in the middle east.
Yup, if you want to know what's really going on in the ME, Africa, and S. Asia you go to al Jazeera. Their handlers told them a long time ago that AJE was a mouthpiece for terrorists because they showed the exact same videos that Fox, CNN, and MSNBC showed.

It doesn't have to make sense when you're talking about the terminally stupid.

"One thing I will not compromise over is whether or not Congress should pay the tab for a bill they've already racked up," Obama said in his weekly radio and Internet address.
Borrowing more money to rack up more debt to pay off the debt Congress racked up?
Somebody's head isn't on straight. President Obama's.
I need a liberal to explain this logic.
Its the same thing I've been telling you for years, you have to pay for the government you demanded instead of stealing from future generations. You've been more than happy to sit on your as s enjoying these tax cuts while demanding ever more from your government and deferring the cost to your daughter.

Since I already provided a link to the source of the information along with it, does your question mean:
1. You're not smart enough to understand the link.
2. You're too lazy to click on it.
3. You're too stupid to do a search yourself.
4. You're just a typical right wing moron.

You benefit from all of these things our government and others have done in the past, you live in your nice comfy house with your collection of electronic toys and your nice car that runs on reasonably priced gasoline and you have the nerve to come on here and criticize those who made it possible?
Sounds like ingratitude to me. Do you know anything about world history? Do you think the Ottoman empire was acquired by asking nicely?
So from this post I can assume that you accept with gratitude everything the Dems have to offer?

So now your side is railing against him just as the left railed against Limbaugh ... where's the double standard? Is anyone preventing you from criticizing him?

Y'all are way too sensitive, kinda girly really.(unless you're a girl in which case I apologize and have nothing more to offer)

Oh sure. I have no insecurities like you do old man. Provide a link to a single lie. When you say stuff like my bitch it just demonstrates how immature you are. I have government and experience in a nuclear and fossil energy corporation so I'm willing to bet you are well below my level professionally and educational. So midget, what was your working life like? Were you a professional name caller?
Baaaawwwwaaaahhhhhh!!!!!!!
Interesting, you feed at the public trough? I really do own you.
I don't need to provide a link to one of your lies, the post you just made is a lie.
So, "Baaaawwwwaaaahhhhh!!!!!! " meets your standard for mature?
And working as a toilet cleaner at a nuclear and fossil energy corporation doesn't require any advanced degrees. You're a phony, lying, insecure, psychotic, moron that I treat with all the respect you deserve, bitch.

WASHINGTON President Barack Obama's 2008 campaign has been fined $375,000 by the Federal Election Commission for reporting violations related to a set of donations received during the final days of the campaign.
The fines are among the largest ever levied on a presidential campaign by the FEC and stem from a series of missing filings for nearly 1,200 contributions totaling nearly $1.9 million. Campaigns are required to file the reports during the final weeks of the campaign.

And we trust this administration to handle the debt ceiling and the entire nation's health care?
Did you say "trust"??

Well you're gonna have to do some fast talkin' and high steppin' to pull that one off. You used up all your Magic Negro dust this last election, there's nothing left but to deliver - and that's not in the cards. We now have higher taxes, NO spending cuts, and $5 trillion added to the debt. You're on a roll.
