  •  No,its not. its calling out a logical fallacy (6+ / 0-)

    Its begging the "prove it point"

    Which obviously the moderate can't do without appeal to authority

    The speaker has already in this scenario denied the claim as false. He need and can do no more. He can't prove the email doesn't exist.

    In terms of reason, he does the right thing- seeks prove. The proof given was appeal to auturity- a logical fallacy.

    Its fair for him at that point to say "this is a logical fallacy"

    Did he need to do it in a joking manner?

    No, but honestly if that's your beef its not a point at all.

    This is quite clearly something that American media is not used to dealing with. They are used to asserting without question. Assange rightfully says prove it.

    OT Ive seen this for years with the press. They asserted at the time fo the public options - Americans are against it. Yet every poll had support at 60 percent What they meant was DC didn't support it. But they swapped DC political thinking with what Americans said they want. It was a nice shell game, but that's all it was

    No one ever calls them on these games. What people here like is the fact that someo e is calling the m on logical fallaciies

    •  Yes, it is. (0+ / 0-)

      Copy and paste the text that says anything besides "It's not true" and "TIME is not credible." You have these grandiose interpretations that add tons of meat to the bone. Copy and past where he says anything beyond what I said.

      I think YOU made a much stronger case than he did. All JA added was tit for tat.

      Please proceed, Governor.
