Obama impeachment hearings start march 11th. What do you all think of this?

Report as

False
Origins: The claim that Congress is scheduled to begin impeachment hearings against Barack Obama on 11 March 2013 over his use of U.S. military forces in Libya and Syria and his involvement in the Fast and Furious scandal stems from an article entitled "Obama Impeachment Hearings Begin" which was published by the Weekly World News on 5 February 2013.
However, nothing published by the Weekly World News should be confused with reality, as that web site is the online successor to the popular entertainment tabloid whose stock in trade was (and remains) fantastically fictional stories such as "Alien Spaceships to Attack Earth in March 2013," "Lindsay Lohan to Give Birth to Neanderthal," and "How to Sell Your Soul to the Devil!"
Occasionally, as in this case, Weekly World News spoofs escape into the wilds of the Internet, and those who encounter them online in unattributed form (or who are unfamiliar with the nature of the Weekly World News) mistake them for real news stories.

Because they aren't actually a tabloid but a comic/satire publication. Kind of like the onion

Some freedoms are so abused

I think its something to do with being entertainment, not being news. Because I'm pretty sure news editors are liable for false accusations and such.

Look at where the youth of today get their news and opinion. Does John Stewart ring any bells? I hate to say this, but boo is right. But then,this IS the net, look at all of the other wonderful nonsense it allows us to sort through.

Stars Boo!

I agree people should make more of an effort to sort through and examine the information they're given. However, I think the laughing audience and the amount of dancing and ridiculousness both Stewart and Colbert do should be enough for anyone to realize that they're putting a comic spin on everything.
Report as
I LOVE Jon Stewart but he will be the first one to tell you he is a comedian. People just don't seem to understand that topical satire is still comedy.

You mean I shouldn't get my information from somebody on COMEDY CENTRAL.

I did the first time but not the second. The problem is that the candidates we get to choose are so far either right or left that that there is no possibly way they will ever compromise. This country has gotten so side picking that we forget that common sense lies somewhere in the middle.
Report as
So true We really do not have choices..It usually is a vote for the lesser of the 2 evils lol bummer huh..But it is the best any country can do I guess..still pondering that concept..

I like the idea of impeachment. I believe that it is about time the we, as Americans,finally unified and took back out country from the controling money mongers. Obama should be impeached, stripped of all assets, (to help pay down the U.S. debt that he and others are responsible for), and then be jailed. Also, no pension, no C I A protection for him or his family. It's time we sent the message that The United States of America belongs to us and we are at end of being disrespected and stolen from for a debt that we did not create.We also need to do some house cleaning in congress also with the same punishment and fines I proposed for Obama. Think of it, the deficit payed down by money, off shore accounts, and property that was stolen or manipulated from the American people. Think of the renewal of pride, allegiance and prosperity we saw in the 1940's.I love my country and the ONLY reason we are where we are financially and otherwise is because we are not united. Look at the way our veterans are being treated for their sacrifice and service. Our lack of unity is the only culprit with all of this. we have let these people make our country ugly, and giving up citizenship because of outrageous taxes to foot a debt that we did not create is heartwrenching. We can be the greatest country in the world again, if we would just come together and create the change that is needed. It's all up to us, do we pay thieves and liars or do we punish them as they would punish us. I am an American and I am proud to be so, where does your heart lie?
