LOL! The days when reporters could write biased and misinformed stories without being called on it are OVER. Ms. Hunter acted like a kid caught with her hand in a cookie jar coming up with an incredibly LAME excuse. Sure, Jennifer. Blame it on your headline writer. BWAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!

The final kicker for all you Republicans who read my column with a magnifying glass is a press release issued Wednesday: "One of Chicago's key Republican fund-raisers, CME Group Executive Chairman Terry Duffy today announced that he is endorsing Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton for the 2008 election."

Hasn't it also been shown that this "key Republican fund-raiser" also donates to Democrats and only supports RINO's?

Oh no...not the old lifelong Republican trick again!? It’s getting about as cliched as the Nigerian bank scam these days.

Liberal media: The story is true, even though the evidence is false.

How does a writer based in Chicago get access to, or even alerted to, a "staunch Republican" in Philadelphia who wants to advertise that he is supporting the Democrats, anyway? Did a little birdie whisper Jim Ronca's name into Hunter's ear at some point?

The "staunch Republican" is probably a professional "man in the street" the Dems keep around for interviews like this. Like that guy that kept popping up as a "regular joe" in interviews in New Yawk, when Hillary was going around lying to everyone and doling out pardons to terrorists when she was trying to trick human beings into voting for her.

she is being "harassed by a group of irate Republicans" because of her badly researched column.

Excellent!! Free exchange of ideas. She can write her not-at-all-researched-crap, and we can inform her and the public of The Truth. It just goes to show, if you do your homework and aren't afraid to be a little aggresive, liberals are easy to slap down like the pedantics they are.

claiming she is being "harassed by a group of irate Republicans" because of her badly researched column. (The interviewee in her piece claimed to be a "staunch Republican" even as his cash donation records prove he almost exclusively supports Democrats)

It would have taken 30 seconds to verify the contributions of this "staunch Republican".

LOL... Yet another example of the layers of editors and fact checkers at the MSM that the Internet users and Bloggers just don't have.

Reporters need to made to understand that printing lies is not just a little thing: It is a grave offense that should have grave consequences.

Peter Arnet, Mary Mapes, Dan Rather and a hundred others have inflicted outrages on the public that are far more serious than any of the the lies Ken Lay and the Enron types have answered for.

We need to keep journalist's feet to the fire: The battle for the media is the most important struggle we are fighting.

One of the men I interviewed, Jim Ronca, identified himself as a disgruntled Republican, fed up with the Bush White House, who was going to give his vote and money to Democrats.

In my story I called him a "staunch Republican." His wife was standing by his side, and so was a friend, a Democrat from New York, Ted Oshman, neither of whom disputed Ronca's description of himself as a Republican.

Dear Al Gore,
I luv your Internet thingy. It's amazing what one can find...

James Ronca Contribution List in 2000

James Ronca Contribution List in 2002

James Ronca Contribution List in 2004

James Ronca Contribution List in 2006

I don't know, but I don't believe giving $500 to Arlen and a measly $250 to some Greenleaf guy makes one a "staunch Republican" while giving THOUSANDS to Demoncrats of all stripes.

And if I can find this in two minutes I would think Jennifer Hunter could too. But that would ruin her 'See, everyone hates Bush' story now wouldn't it.

Wait ... I know ... it was in her article but the editor deleted it. Yeah, that's the ticket!!

Ms. Hunter says she is a “journalist.”

I have yet to see any evidence of such. She has a job at a newspaper, and writes, but little else.
