Fake Dems made fake documents for fake candidates for a fake Tea Party for fake ballots for a fake congress in a fake democracy.

And every fake faked happyness for ever after. Brings fake tears to my eyes.

Fixed it for you. Odd, isn't it, that the original Fox Detroit report makes that clear, but that Hot Air and you do not? Wonder how that happened??? Quite a mystery.

Actually ... you lied.

That statement is quite clear in the story.

But ... you will give a demokrook a total pass for any krime for the silliest of reasons. You can't help it.

Quite clear, you say?

Then why doesn't it appear on their headline, or in their page one text (before one scrolls down a page), or in the part you quoted?

It doesn't appear at all in the text authored by Hot Air, and only shows up on the second screen quoting from the original source.

If Hot Air and you both knew about this, what was the purpose of omitting that pertinent information out of the lead of the story as they and you did?

The purpose was to say that this was an active Democratic Party effort of likely a far greater extent of involvement than these two former county party executives. For which there is no evidence.

I didn't say anything about these guys are innocent, or shouldn't be prosecuted for the felonies with which they've been charged. You know, the only people in this story accused of anything? While I will now note that not all who are indicted are found guilty after trial, I do presume most are likely guilty of what they are charged with. Let's see the case unfold.

But who has NOT been charged? Anyone actually now in the party leadership in Michigan. If you are charging me with defending them, fine, because no one of that kind has even been charged.

I'm guessing they assumed the readers would be literate.

No, it's an old technique called 'burying the lede.'

Which is putting critical basic information down the page into the later paragraphs, instead of where many or most people would see it, in the headline or the lead paragraph, where many people stop reading.

Anyone just seeing the headline, and/or pulling up the (first) page, would lack this information, as it was distinctly down in scrolling territory. Considering that in the original reporting, it WAS mentioned in paragraph one, this elision is an obvious overt act of burying the lede, for a purpose of misleading on the facts.

More traditional newspapers do this by putting that information after 'the jump' (to another page continuation).

Mentioning it, however much later, allows the claim that we did SO report that, it's right there in the piece, can't you read???

While still making it harder to find that detail, of course.
