It's amazing that educated people like yourself cannot (or choose not to, perhaps) see the double standard in the media, Dimbee.

Great shot by Meeks, eh?

why not?

I suppose they could have walked her to the parking lot and asked her to point out which car she was sleeping in.

I know there is a double standard, but I think PL is reaching quite a bit...

Why is it reaching? She asked the president a question, told her story, just as Joe did. Why are we taking her at face value? Why is the media not asking simple questions, at least, about her and her adult son and their circumstances? Was their house in foreclosure? Why didn't they apply for public housing a year ago -- I know there's a 2-year waiting period, they said, but they'd be another year closer (maybe they did, but the implication is that they didn't)? What has the son done to try to find a job? Why is the media taking everything she/they said as gospel? I'm simply asking why the media (and you, apparently) is taking a different view of her than they did of Joe? It is, in fact, a double standard. You admitted it, but it's ok with you why?

No, I think it's different due to motivation. Joe the liar, I mean Plumber was doing his song and dance as a politically-motivated piece of propaganda.
