View Diary: Battle for the soul of a blog: Can Jeralyn turn TalkLeft around? (60 comments)

  •  I think it's highly ironic that her blog... (6+ / 0-)

    ... is devoted to justice and legal issues (and, one would think in that context, fairness), yet she continually cited some of the most vile, whacked-out anti-Obama hate pieces from NoQuarter as fact.

    Doesn't that just destroy her credibility on issues of justice and fairness?

      But despite being so aware of the "whitey tape" smear that she's had to specifically warn commenters away from mentioning it, she still has No Quarter listed as among the "Blogs We Like".

      Threatening to ban people for spreading a rumor - while enthusiastically endorsing the site that started that rumor - does have more than a whiff of hypocrisy

      •  She only bailed on the "Whitey" smear (2+ / 0-)

        ... after it was clear Clinton would concede.

        Prior to that, Jeralyn repeated and touted the most shameful smears emanating from NoQuarter on the front page of her blog.

        Like Taylor Marsh, many of the smears were lies, only to have so-called "credible" progressive bloggers repeat these lies on their (formerly) respected blogs.

      •  Here's an example of classic log-rolling (5+ / 0-)

        ... of an outright lie between NoQuarter and TalkLeft:

        Jeralyn Nails Obama for "Vote-Stealing"

        Right.

        And she has a blog on "justice" and the law? And she makes up the charge that Obama was caught "vote-stealing" and she never offered a shred of evidence that it was true?

        And there's SusanUnPC, backing her up.

        Pathetic, sad, sick and disgusting.

        Jeralyn is a fraud.

          how long have you been posting at No Quarter and what's your handle?

          The greatest trick the devil ever pulled was convincing the world She didn't exist.

          I don't care if they are all pretending to support Obama. It's obvious from their diaries and posts that they are putting forth an effort to undermine the Democratic nominee and his supporters.

          Also, anyone that links to No Quarter still, and promotes it or has promoted the racist garbage there, has no redemption without a Mea culpa.

          At least for me that's the case.
