hey folks: I had a thought.

Books like Al Franken's and Sean Hannity's are probably biased. I would like to believe otherwise, but they probably are. So if you read facts from there, how about not using them as a source? Check out the source yourself. If the book's any good at all, it'll cite its sources somewhere. Look them up and cite them for us. But ol' Mikey Moore holds little sway here.

My two cents for you.
Clap

if you use a reference, make sure that it also has references
like at the end of a wikipedia article the well-written ones have sources at the bottom, and www.snopes.com always includes sources at the bottom of their articles

just make sure that you use secondary sources as well
Sweet, I get applause from Nick. And yes, secondary is good...Wikipedia is not nearly as unreliable as people say, but it is faintly suspect. So yeah, what Nick said, look up the osurces for your source. And by the time you get done looking up all your sources, the thread will be dead...but you'll be smarter.

just beacuase they have a opinion doesnt mean they lie

This has been stated before, but I feel the need to defend my posts!

I have no problem with people's opinions, but with people like Mikey and Al and Bill and Rush, you never know just how fair and balanced they're being. They have agendas up the wazoo, and I just feel that citing any of them as a source ("I heard it on the O'Reilly Factor"Wink is not a good idea. Use a newspaper, use an encyclopedia, use actual government documents! Any of those are SO much better than taking a pundit's word for it.

It seems as reliable as Wiki. Just be prepared to have to do more than just go there. You need to verify what other people are telling you...

"just because they severely screw up their facts to prove their opinion, doesn't mean that these uber-liberals are liars....but of course their conservative counterparts are!"

the substance of your argument should not be a quote from some comedian or political icons because none of them are intelligent when it comes to politics
now, if you're doing something like quoting South Park at the end of your message to try to put your opinion into perspective then it's fine. or if you quote someone famous and build on then it's fine. Otherwise it's just regurgitating shit that others force-fed you and no one with a valid opinion when try to force it on you.
