Following Fierobear's post, where's the post saying "Huffington isn't a credible source"? Do we only follow a source when it aligns with our political gain?

EDIT: I didn't quote you, Fierobear, because this question isn't directed at you.

Or, do we look elsewhere for confirmation. I would have to say though, that when a Dumb source outs a Dumb's actions, the act of outing gives credibility.
Actually, since the Huffington Post's and the AOL merger, I see a little more open honesty. Heh, might as well appear legit since it's gonna come out anyway.
In answer to your question weeks back, on if the news media (any side of the isle) lies, yes, yes they do. By not being as honest as they can. If a Mom suspected their child as being impaired, and asked "what's wrong with you, have you been drinking", when in actuality they had been smoking pot, and they said "no, i have not been drinking", to me that is a lie.

I haven't noticed much change in Huffington, but this post DID surprise me because generally I'm not used to them outing another Democrat. So, like you, I found some credibility there.
I agree with you that that would be lying. I actually wasn't thinking of that at first, and now I'm going to look even further when I do my own little "lab report" on the credibility of sources. As it stands, I haven't had much time to really explore, but I think next week I will have more time to look into all sorts of sources and see what I think is the most reliable.
