closedSince the orbit of The Planet periodically brings it close to the wormhole that is The Huffington Post (mainly after full moons), I think it is high time that I made an oath here and now to stop talking about the trolls and personal conflicts at Huffington Post.

After all, the whole point of being at The Planet instead of HuffPo is so that I don’t have to be bothered with and distracted by all that petty, unnecessary stress and soap opera over there. I can get back to what I set out to do by joining HuffPo originally, blog about issues and events that really matter to me.

And by continuing to talk about all that HuffPoop  here, it’s like I’m working against my own desire to escape it. So, I vow not to talk about the inter-member bullshit at HuffPo ever again after the period at the end of this sentence.

There! That feels good! Very freeing!

No more will I talk about you know who and that other guy and “her”, not to mention “she” and the other one, you know who I mean.

In fact, I think talking about not talking about HuffPo is worth talking about often and in great detail.

And, I think anyone not talking about not talking about HuffPo is not talking about what shouldn’t be not talked about.

If we’re going to try to shrug off the HuffPo insanity, we need to start talking seriously about not talking about HuffPo.

And what better way to do that than talking about how we should be talking about not talking about it? And we can’t be all talk about not talking about it!

Know what I’m talking about?

Good night all. And Kalima, don’t be doing any painting the walls today. I may have nightmares about your story. You are needed here!
G’nite.

You mean you can even talk to each other about simple life chores like painting the walls and no one’s going to wipe your comments away like spilled coffee on the counter top?
How silly that a simple thing like that can make me feel happy, like I’m talking to real people and not just some alphabetical ruminations.

No one will wipe your comments or leave them pending for hours, days or eternity as some of mine ended up doing.

I’m working on it, because it went so much further than I can even imagine and ended up with conspiracy gang related charges and a young man losing his life for not doing what the jail shot callers asked of him and hours of court proving the police and sheriffs conspired against my son, who is one of the few black men in the town…I’m working on the mother’s perspective and now I know where I can post it….

A hard to fathom story about your son, I’m still shaking my head and picking up my jaw from the floor, it must have been a very hard time for you both and it breaks my heart to read about it. So sorry that you went through so much unnecessary grief and I hope that you will consider doing a post about the prison system, I and I’m sure many others would be very interested to read it.

Ok, when you can make it over, if you just scroll down a little, I left a link for some Christmas recipes that looked quite delicious.

No, not until recently, before that it was a picture of my African American son, talking on a jail phone wearing orange and white stripped jail clothing.
Fighting for his freedom and rights has been a big part of my life, when he was finally released, I took his pic down nand put up my own.
I’m still fighting the system for him and others.
He did 1 year in county jail for graffiti.

So this is where everybody went…So glad be find out I wasn’t just thinking negatively and paranoid, thinking that HP was getting foxier by the moment and AH had pulled a fast one on us.
And ok I won’t talk about it any more than to acknowledge that I’m glad I’m here. My brain feels lighter and smarter already.
And while yes, some snarky remarking was kinda fun sometimes, it really has mucked things up over there and is just plain boring..
I’ll try not to mention it again but I do think it’s just as important to call HP out about their erroneous reporting, as it is to call out Fox for their misinformation, both are committing a crime against the masses.
Ok, I’m done…good to see everyone

Welcome, Hopeington!

And, I have to add, I think that the vast majority of folks here are totally OK with discussing how biased and sensationalized things have gotten at HP. That’s a completely legit issue! It was just the matter of bringing personal, individual battles from that place and making overt or veiled references to them here that was getting to be a bummer. (To be perfectly candid, I was bummed often because I didn’t have the foggiest notion of what people were talking about! I don’t spend 10 minutes a day at HP any more, so I’m totally and happily out of the loop.)

Thanks for the welcoming..I’ve been telling folks that I thought we should be wary of Huff’s tactics, and felt we were being led to the same place that Fox leads it’s viewers, the propaganda was just skewed differently, but it still was the same end result, negativity, dissent and distraction. And while I don’t always agree with the President, the nonconstructive Obama bashing was wearing me out. Glad to be here with ya.

Welcome the the other planet, Hopington. I know I will not stop calling out HP. With Fox and Drudge, I know what they are and don’t expect anything but the worst. But HP is still posing as a progressive website — which it isn’t. That makes me mad!

Hopeington

I’m just glad there is a place to call them out, of course, I was scrubbed almost everytime I tried to raise the cry that we were being hood winked and high jacked by the false appearance of liberal media, and it seemed like everyone excepted it for that, without even noticing the subtle changes that were occurring.
It made me mad too, in this instance, Fox has more integrity and don’t pretend to be something they’re not

boomer1949

See, I stopped reading all that garbage because it was a waste of time and more important the more they’re called out, the more attention they receive. It’s how they make the $$$. The idiots who believe their diatribe will believe it until the day they die and trying to change those minds is like trying to “talk to the dining room table” (Barney Frank, Town Hall Somewhere, 2009).

I really want to say ONE thing. This morning, Dec. 10, Huff posted a headline that the public option in health care was RIP with Speaker Pelosi caving. I wrote to her Senior Health Consultant whom I know, and she said NO WAY!!! Not only that, but there was a public press briefing this morning in which Speaker Pelosi said to the media that she had told the Senate, “show me the plan”. She said the House of Representatives is devoted to the public option and would back down IF and ONLY IF there were something as good or better from the Senate and Congressional Budget Office. So – the story was NOT TRUE, and HuffPo totally misrepresented the information. That is serious because it was a total fabrication.

bito
Member

This is the kind of thing that have no more use for that site. I read a head line and story that was completely false from everything I had read or seen (and completely un-sourced). No more!
Anyone want to see Leader Pelosi’s briefing May get it at C-Span. (they are tight about their links, sorry)

Pepe Lepew

I pulled an e’cat and went to a bunch of news sites … not one of them — not one — had a headline even remotely similar to the HP one.

Any HP propaganda is fair game choicelady, they should be shown up for false claims. Their goal seems clear, they want to undermine the President, they might as well proclaim themselves as a RW blog, that is where they are heading.

nellie

I think that kind of comment on the site is completely justified — and should be made whenever misinformation is published. Just like it should be pointed out at any site.

choicelady, I would love for you to write something about Obama’s DOJ strategy that could be posted at AlterNet. They’re going crazy over there with the decision re John Woo. I posted something this morning to refute the claim that the administration has accomplished nothing — I’d love for there to be something else posted for those whiners to think about.

choicelady
Member

I will work that up. I’ve not posted before, only replied, but I think – think – I have the hang of it. All your great help has made this less awesome. However, that said, can y’all wait a bit? I’m in the thick of the health care issue for our organization’s members, on the road several days next week trying to stomp down the hysteria bred by Ms. Huff and others, and moving people to speak intelligently about what they want from health reform. In other words, I’m overwhelmed. By the end of next week, I will come up for air, have some time off, and will do this reflection on Obama’s use of Bush court pleadings on torture with and for you.

You all have NO idea how much I love this site! It’s the BEST conversation going on in America, and I trust all of you – what intelligent, kind, thoughtful people! KQuark – thank you for leading me here!

Now I’m off to get ready for bed because I have to get up at 5 am tomorrow to drive four hours in the rain for a 2 hour presentation on health care then drive four hours back again. Also in the rain. Thinking about reading what funny, insighful, awesome things you all have written will carry me down and back. G’night!

Nellie, C’Lady, is not the DOJ obligated by law to defend laws that are already in effect? How vigorous they do it is up to question. The DOJ (Holder) entered just an Amicus Brief, not a formal defense, did they not?

choicelady
Member

bitohistory – some of the first cases had indeed to be carried on as Bush entered them. DOJ had no choice, which is something people don’t understand. When, in one case, they elected not to ask for a delay, it was because they KNEW the courts would rule against the Bush doctrine, and they were right. To my knowledge, which is not complete, they have pled the cases just as Bush and company wrote them. All because they could tell that the courts would NOT uphold the Bush doctrine. Brilliant, IMHO.

NOW I’m headed to sleep!

Good point, Nellie. The rightwing has its disinformation generators in Sarah, Beck, Limbaugh, et al. But on the left, there’s plenty of it to go around as well (HP for example). And I’ve noticed that there’s a certain sort of leftie — the kind you have been talking about — who are easily swayed and overwhelmed with righteous indignation –against his own party. The Disappointed Dem. That “Public Option RIP” thread is crawling with them right now. Is there something in the progressive personality? I’m thinking it’s expectations — they allow them to go hogwild and then the inevitable disappointment comes.

choicelady

While I think I agree ( my head is spinning ) because the other blog is what it is, and it’s boring to talk about it, there is an Voldemort-ian quality to She Who Must Not Be Named. I guess I’d prefer NOT to belabor the weirdness over there, but when something egregious occurs, may we discuss it as an issue of free speech, trying to understand the framework, etc? Otherwise it’s giving an awful lot of power to SWMNBN. There are concerns such as this morning’s post that the public option is DOA (it’s not – got that directly from senior health care staff in both the Senate and House) which is very misleading. So can we talk about that?

Pepe Lepew
Member

I think AdLib is OK with talking about HuffPost’s outrageous inflammatory headlines and poor reporting. It’s the venting about the history of feuds, personal slights and trolls on the HuffPost forums that he — and a lot of us — feel it’s time to let go of.

I agree, choicelady. I am very much interested in media issues in general and consider them of prime importance in a democracy. It’s important to critically analyze all the media and how certain issues are being presented and/or slanted. This is particularly so for HuffPo because it is still considered a “progressive site” and has a great influence on how many progressives view the issues and the president — while many of us feel that this really is NOT the case, that it is, to use an old metaphor, a wolf in sheep’s clothing. I think it’s extremely important to stay on top of that and discuss it and call it out.

I think what we are agreeing to take offline here are the personal issues that arise. Adlib, please correct me if I’m misinterpreting.

Greetings Everyone,

Now this is something I’d like to talk about not talking about. I know many of you (as much as you can know people online) from that other place. I for one am very happy that PlanetPOV is here.

To talk about that other place, only brings that sinking feeling of reminiscing about a place of days gone by. It was a nice place to visit but I don’t post there anymore. I used to go there to check the news every day. I don’t anymore. So I’ve kicked my habit and feel more in control of my blog life. Finally.

Adlib, I know what you’re talking about! But, I do think there’s a need to vent a bit, sometimes. To me it’s like being betrayed (too over the top?), having your hands tied and mouth taped shut (heavy moderation, comments and full pages disappearing), and speaking of the under bridge dwellers, can’t take that anymore. Not good for the BP.

Anyway, HP can’t touch PlanetPOV because you can swear your ass off here. That is if you choose to do so.

Hello BDM, Poppy is at the vet getting spayed and teeth cleaned. Two nights of peace and quiet and clean up! I’ll pick her up tomorrow again.

Say you dog lovers have you checked out dogster.com ? Oh, there is also a catster.com
for the *cat* people, I only say that because cats seem to own the people whereas dogs are loyal subjects…. Ha Ha ! :-}

I have our dogs on there.

Thanks for the ‘headsup’, PatsyT. I love them both! Cats AND dogs are wonderful.

Adlib, I am so glad that you talked about this not talking about that place or that women…I came here to the Planet to get away from that place that we are not going to talk about and her, who’s name we dare not speak.

nicole has set up a place for those who need to talk about what we are not going to talk about here at the Planet.

So, can we talk about something else?

Thank you BDM, for posting Nicole’s link. I completely respect that Planet POV doesn’t want to “talk” about HP frustrations.

Obviously, we’ve all had different experiences at HP, and we all process things at a different pace.

Ironically, this was one of the first times I really wanted to “talk about it”, so I’ve signed up at Nicole’s forum. **smiles**

After last night (I won’t “talk” about it), I really appreciate it.

AdLib and UncleB, I really enjoyed your posts.

P.S. There are some very savvy writers here. Ya’ll never cease to amaze me!

Well, now I know who the nightowls are that stay up talking, or stay up all night not talking, or agree to talk about not talking.

When do you guys get to go to sleep? (I thought I was bad with 5 hours per night.)

I have ADHD, I only need five hours a night of sleep. 🙂
