Getting the "news" from Media Matters is like eating the bolus of a catfish.

A nonsequitor? I didn't get that from media matters.

The distributor of the video, it being a mere snippet of Robertson's show with no context, was from Media Matters. I'm just pointing out that a Marxist organization felt this particular snafu - if one insists on calling it that - was important; perhaps it was to draw attention away from one of Haiti's obvious problems: decades of Marxist economics. Poverty follows socialism.

All controversial comments are taken out of context, be they from the right or the left (we on the right have our own "Media Matters", the MRC, which I cherish).

I agree that poverty follows socialism - the Massachusetts Bay Colony figured that out pretty quickly in the 17th century - and that Robertson's comment was a distraction.
