rightsided asked: Betcha a nickel you won't see any fact-checking/criticism of either Bill Clinton or Sandra Fluke featured under "politics" or "election 2012."
Well, are you going to fact-check or criticize them?
I saw an awesome fact-check/critique of speeches by Julian Castro’s and Michelle Obama today, written by some right-winger I’ve never heard of … but I didn’t write about it or feature it because it’s awesomeness came from how ridiculous, petulant, and baseless it was in its criticism and “fact-checking.”
So … if you do a good job of it, maybe I’ll even feature what you write. But that means you have to write something and it has to actually offer a serious critique or point out a serious flaw in an argument you heard tonight. It can’t say “Bill Clinton talked for a long time” or “The Clinton/Obama hug was pretty short” or “Fluke is wrong to say that the GOP would limit women’s reproductive rights.”
I don’t really understand this fascination with playing the victim of some sort of blogging conspiracy. If you don’t think there are enough conservatives with Tumblr blogs, tell your conservative friends to start using Tumblr. Tumblr’s liberals would probably love to have more people to yell at.
I have pretty much one rule about the content I feature in the limited amount of time I spend helping to curate Tumblr’s politics tag: If you post interesting or unique content, people will pay attention to it. If you post weak sauce, people will ignore it.
Go write something interesting.
