    ... that praises a known racist and antisemitic bigot, who was called principled and honest throughout the comments because he dares to say exactly what he thinks. So yeah, I'm not surprised that ignorance and lack of fact-checking extends to the left.

      The staff at the Post gets paid to be professional.

        I do care that people in that diary are ignorant of what Ron Paul really stands for and think that because he's on their side on one issue, that he is somehow deserving of praise.

        But you're right that the Post is paid for their occasional forays into crazy talk. They should definitely be held to a higher standard, simply by virtue of the fact that they are supposed to be journalists with a certain amount of integrity.
