Great. Maybe he can double check his sources this time before telling lies about the president weeks before an election.

Good grief, another network going down the liberal tube. I guess that this shows Mark Cubans politics. I wish there was some where to turn to get balanced news. Brokaw blamed everyone else for his mistake, but you know that he realy wanted that letter about Bush's guard duty to be true.

Cuban is in pretty tight with George Clooney and that group so you can tell to what side he tends to lean. Also, if you ever watch HDNet World Report you can catch that drift as well. Nothing ever over the top though so I credit him for that.

Instead of the 'president' who tellls lies every time his lips are moving (Or not).... Sieg Heil!

I think you meant to say Rather.

And none of you was ever in a situation where you knew something was true, but you couldn't prove it? Not being able to "prove" something does not automatically make it untrue.

Yes, I know exactly what you mean. We know that Saddam wouldn't voluntarily destroy his WMD so what happened to them? My vote is that they are in Syria, but that can't be proven either.

Believing something is true and not being able to prove it should lead to judiciousness.

Relying on unsubstantiated "evidence" should get you what you deserve (well, in this case you get to be a host of a TV show even if you have erased your credibility).

This thread is moving dangerously close to being a political discussion, which I think is a NO NO on the forum. We should all be glad that comrade Rather has a job and leave it at that.

It would be better if political discussions were taken to political forums, which there are many. If so inclined, you can get into heated discussions as much, perhaps more, than you want.

I have participated in posting on several myself over the years and have seen the discussions get very personal because many people can't argue without attacking another poster. Hell, we have some of this sort of thing here about high def subjects even. Eventually it will deteroriate to a point where people are banned and hard feelings abound. I think it would be better if, for the most part, this forum remains apolitical and we just discuss the main topic of our forum.

With that in mind, I think all of the high definition aspects of this thread has been covered and I am closing this thread.
