100,000 Sign up with Attack Watch!?

After altering its original story covering the “hilarity” of the Attack Watch site on “the Internet”, the Washington Post updated their article again to include:

Update, Wednesday, 5:11 p.m.

Obama 2012’s press office just returned an earlier request for comment. According to deputy press secretary Katie Hogan, 100,000 people signed up for the site in the first 24 hours.

“This site is a tool providing our supporters with the facts they need to fight back against lies and distortions about the President’s record,” Hogan said.

Just a little thought… how many of those that signed up did so in order to report themselves or to report something even more hilarious than the Attack Watch site’s internet birth?

As a side note: I personally visited the #AttackWatch Twitter page yesterday. Noticing that #AttackWatch and I both shared in following another Twitter page, #GlennBeck, I clicked on the list of the Twitter pages they follow. At the bottom of their list is of course, #BarackObama. I do not know for the life of me how or why it showed that my account was also following #BarackObama, for up to that point, I had never even visited his Twitter page, nor was his page listed as being a shared “following” page on the #AttackWatch list.

So user beware – even though you do not literally “follow” someone on Twitter, a visit to #AttackWatch on Twitter may end up raising the numbers for the account known as #BarackObama. Which, for all intents and purposes, should be construed as “lies and distortions about the President’s record”.

  2. Thank you, Silas. But I fear things like this will continue to be buried by the regime’s mass media cohorts. The only consolation in all this I take is that hopefully the numbers raise his hopes only to be dashed when differing numbers come in November 6, 2012. On the downside, it could backfire as well. So many people adhere to what they read and watch on the MSM networks that they may believe either 1) all hope is lost so why bother voting, or 2) the others will vote for Obama just so they can say they were on the winning team. Either way, I’m glad I followed my gut on this one, if no other reason than to prove to myself that I don’t imagine an article differently than what I thought it said earlier, and this proves to me that the media does change things at the whim of an elitist.
