Lately I have been spending a lot of time perusing stories at the Yahoo! News site.
I am not providing a link because anybody literate enough to read these words ona computer should be able to find it.
And all you gotta do is go there.
if you can stomach it: it's definitely not for everybody.
Because I have worked in mental health for 30 years and have listened to endless tales of sexual and physical abuse, amazingly crazy delusional schemes and the conspiracies of paranoid individuals, I feel both qualified to review the massive delusional outpouring one sees at that site as well as 'protected' from that crap because long-ago I developed the ability to tolerate such sheer sustained madness.
My actually serious point is that Yahoo News IS a wholly-rightwing site.
The stories are written with rightwing bias: There's way too many to list but this morning's gem is here:
It would have been "Rmoney Sweeps Series".
Obama kicked Rmoney's ass all over the stage, while Rmoney CHOKED, so Obama 'won' but the debate doesn't matter.
The comments there are just unbelieveably stupid. Droolingly stupid. "I need assistance to wipe my ass" stupid.
They are also absolutely delusional: Birtherim, Kenya Conspiracy kooks: The debate moderator was set up by Obama, the questions were all targeted for Obama": it's a freaking circus over there.
Another telling detail is when I DO point this out
More rightwing horsehit from Yahoo News's massive wingnut bias.Not just because it is foul, this gets hidden because they have this HUGE delusional about the existence of something called "The Liberal Media" and they are unshakable in their stupid faith in this laughable topic.
Jesus God Almighty - Not the debate that mattered.
TRANSLATION: WAAAAAAAH! Obama won the debate.
If "Rmoney had won the debate" we'd not here this horsehit about "not an important debate".
God the sour grapes with these whiny anti-American nutbags.
Did I say topic? I meant DELUSION.
mention anything about Yahoo being a rightwing site or the right having major control of content and they simply have a spasm. It's sort of like cow-tipping, only more fun and no cows are injured.
There is, as most readers know, no such thing as a liberal media. 3 hours a night on MSNBC + Jon Stewart do NOT equal "liberal media". it just doesn't come remotely close to balancing the the totally unfair, outrageous over-representation of rightwing talking points and ideology that pours forth daily from the wingnut media: hate radio, ALL television stations, most print media outside what we know to be left-leaning.
If there were such a thing a a liberal media, especially as these numbnuts envision it, marijuana would have been relegalized in the early 1970's, anti-war protests would not be downplayed, denigrated and befouled by every last tv station; Reagan might never have been president. We probably would have avoided the illegal attack on Iraq.
it's not without bright spots, though: from the link above:
Camano Is. Artist • 7 hrs agoI treat this largely as sport - there is no actual ability to debate people at Yahoo. Wingnuts have this pervasive fantasy they are somehow master debaters with a firm and exhaustive grasp of facts they want to find in each stoy and which they 'use' in their 'debates'.
I will gladly take a smart nerd over a slick liar.

yahoo must have written this
Another thing that yahoo does that betrays it's wingnut alliances is it forbids any sort of hyperlink: there is no way to provide any supporting information from one's points and it really and truly is just a shouting match over there.
Finally, they post polls showing Rmoney ahead of Obama, which I don't think is really correct, but, again, this is not a 'news' site: it's a propaganda septic tank.
Wingnuts are simply too delusional to participate in actual debates, they are too anti-intellectual to have anything like a 'command of facts' and anything that one would link would be shot down immediately as "liberal media junk".
They really are impervious to reality and they have zero credibility.
And .....they're just so stupid.
