That is from my Senator, Al Franken, in his book Lies: And the Lying Liars Who Told Them: A Fair and Balanced Look at the right. Also available as a video.

u/MCA2142 · 148 pointsr/Fuckthealtright

Before he was a senator, Al Franken wrote a book called, "Lies: And the Lying Liars Who Tell Them: A Fair and Balanced Look at the Right".

It destroys Ann Coulter, and it's one of the most hilarious books I've ever read.

Nothing spiked sales of Al Franken's book Lies: And the Lying Liars Who Tell Them, a Fair and Balanced Look at the Right like Bill O'Reilly whining about it.

u/snkngshps · 11 pointsr/politics

And from someone who literally wrote a (great) book called "Lies and the Lying Liars That Tell Them"

u/TheL0nePonderer · 10 pointsr/atheism

Thanks, apparently that's reprinted from Al Franken's "Lies: And the Lying Liars Who Tell Them: A Fair and Balanced Look at the Right."

Just ordered!

It's a good read. And funny too. The author is now a US senator.

You can thank the junior US Senator from Minnesota for penning this.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fox_v._Franken
>August 7, 2003. Fox News Channel, the plaintiff, sought to enjoin Al Franken from using Fox's trademark phrase "fair & balanced" in the title of his then-forthcoming book, Lies and the Lying Liars Who Tell Them: A Fair and Balanced Look at the Right.[1] Judge Denny Chin denied Fox's motion for injunction on August 22, and the network dropped the suit three days later.

It's called lying. Reddit admins lie because they are liars.

Here's a classic book of projection that even lies about who the liars are: https://www.amazon.com/Lies-Lying-Liars-Balanced-Right/dp/0452285216

This was written during the Bush administration but seems perfectly relevant to what's happening now: https://www.amazon.com/Lies-Lying-Liars-Balanced-Right/dp/0452285216/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1484770195&sr=8-1&keywords=al+franken

u/gadsdenfags · 2 pointsr/PoliticalDiscussion

Yes. He lies for an agenda discrediting even his valid points. Don't take anything he says as more than just entertainment. Give this a read or just read up on his other lies. http://www.amazon.com/Lies-Lying-Liars-Tell-Them/dp/0452285216

u/Ch3t · 2 pointsr/politics

Al Franken already wrote a book about it.

u/ailboles · 2 pointsr/politics

Just leaving this here for your readership pleasure. Recall, Fox tried to sue him for skewering their tag line.

Damn, that does feel like a lifetime ago.

u/funnyfaceking · 2 pointsr/WeinsteinEffect

>One case has pictorial documentation of groping,

Groping does not cast shadows.

> the perp was a sitting United States senator.

The USO tour was in 2006. Franken was not elected until 2009.

>It happened to be an organic development of the #metoo movement.

Leeann Tweeden was a right wing talk radio host who did frequent appearances on Fox News. Al Franken has been an aggressive and effective critic and agitator against Fox News longer than just about anyone. This was an orchestrated hit by the right taking advantage of an organic movement that developed primarily out of the left.

>The other case has a 35+ year accusation from high school, without any corroboration

Dozens of people attempted to contact the FBI with corrobation, but the executive branch limited the scope of the investigation into it's own nominee .

> it’s a politically motivated Democrat hit job

Sez you. change my mind.

>It’s a disgrace to all those who are real victims of sexual assault and rape.

Don't speak for me.

> Both situations make liberals look bad

That's clearly all you and your mind care about. Bye.

Not for sure on that, I linked the first imgur album from google. Though a quick google search shows that it comes from Al Franken's book Lies: And the Lying Liars Who Tell Them: A Fair and Balanced Look at the Right.

u/borderwave2 · 2 pointsr/BlackPeopleTwitter

The book in question came out in 2004 iirc?

u/EByrne · 2 pointsr/nfl

You're honestly going to claim that this strikes you as the work of a man who would rather express his views in a subtle, nonconfrontational manner than go public and go extreme?

Again, FWIW, I really like Franken as a senator. He cares about the right issues. But that doesn't change his past, and his past doesn't make him a bad or unfit senator.

u/Bob3333 · 1 pointr/AdviceAnimals

Everybody should read Lies and the Lying Liars Who Tell Them. It will give you a lot of real insight into how political conservatives spread misinformation. One of the techniques covered in some detail is making some outrageous allegation and "backing it up" with a citation that doesn't actually support the allegation to draw people into a debate about the citation rather than the allegation. It's a sort of red herring where everybody forgets about the lie and focuses on the citation. The diversion facilitates a kind of psychological acceptance of the original allegation as fact and only opens the accuracy of the citation to doubt.

Lies: And the Lying Liars Who Tell Them: A Fair and Balanced Look at the Right

With the exception of the brief Senate career of the author and the truth catching up to O'Reilly (anecdotes in the book) what's changed? Even the "gospel of supply side Jesus" comes from somewhere.

u/spribyl · 1 pointr/politics

To thing they drumded Al because of a photo from 20 years ago and everthing thing trump has done is worse and more recent.

Lies, Lying, Liars Balanced Right.

u/IAmA_Risky_Click_AMA · 1 pointr/forwardsfromgrandma

As far as I can tell, this is the source.

u/FrankReynolds · 0 pointsr/politics

Just an FYI to everyone, and I hope this doesn't get buried to far:

Al Franken has authored a few political-centered books. My favorite being: Lies and the Lying Liars Who Tell Them.

I strongly suggest picking up at least that one, and maybe The Truth

u/ExcellentSombrero · 0 pointsr/mildlyinteresting

> You just gotta get over this issue you have with admitting when you're wrong.

Still confused, I see.

> f/7.1 is not a shallow DoF by any stretch.

This statement is correct for the OP's photograph, and you know it. It doesn't take intelligence to lift a statement out of context and then discredit your own misrepresentation of it. This is a uniquely conservative approach to debate. There's a whole book written about it, which is very good. I recommend it to anyone. I only mention the political aspect because it's interesting what something as simple as debate style can reveal about someone.
