Oh those Tea-Pee-ers! Feed them a story, any story, and they'll believe it!



UPDATE BELOW


Just like they believed the story that John McCain's VP pick was a pitbull with lipstick and that she was qualified to be VP of the USof A!  They actually believed that load of horse manure.

Now another pile of horse manure is being passed around Tea-Pee Land and the usual gullible suspects are lapping it up like honey on a pile of garbage.


Here's what they've been told:


(Reuters) - U.S. Army Sergeant Bowe Bergdahl will be charged with desertion for disappearing from his base in Afghanistan in 2009, NBC News reported on Tuesday. Bergdahl, who was released from captivity last year in a controversial Taliban prisoner swap, could be charged within a week, the television network said, quoting senior defense officials who were not identified by name.

 However, senior Army and defense officials contacted by Reuters could not confirm the report.



From Addicting Information:


 On Monday, The O’Reilly Factor put on retired Lt. Col. Tony Schaffer who claimed that he had inside knowledge which told him that the former Prisoner of War had been charged, with his lawyer already having been served with the paperwork, for desertion in the events which led up to his capture by the Taliban on June 30th, 2009. 

This of course spread like wildfire across the right-wing media landscape. Problem is, it’s not true. 

This morning, Forces Command spokesperson Paul Boyce stated that the entire claim was false. 

No papers had been sent, no charges filed, none of it was true, and that the Fox News broadcast “seems to be speculative in nature.” In short, Fox News lied, once again. 

 Instead, the military is calling the case still under investigation, with no timetable for a resolution to be filed. As it is an active investigation, no further comments are forthcoming, which means that Fox News created a false narrative to push, and ran with it, once again. 

 The right wing obsession with Bergdhal began as a way to attack the president, for leaving him a POW. But once his freedom was secured, they began to attack him directly, again, as a way to attack the president.

BENBERGDAHL! BENBERGDAHL! BENBERGDAHL!

This is just one of the right wing blogs where the Tea-Pee-ers get their WRONG information.

There are so many others out there and so many more Tea-Pee-ers who fall for it every time.

UPDATE


From Army Times:


The Army says there is no truth to media reports claiming a decision has been made to charge Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl with desertion. 


 The Army continues to review the case against Bergdahl, said Paul Boyce, a spokesman for Forces Command, on Tuesday morning. "Sgt. Bergdahl has not been charged with any crime," said Pentagon Press Secretary Rear Adm. John Kirby during a press briefing Tuesday afternoon. 

 "No decision has been made with respect to the case of Sgt. Bergdahl," Kirby said. "None. There is no timeline to make that decision, and Gen. [Mark] Milley is being put under no pressure to make a decision."



Pentagon slams Bergdahl story as 'patently false’ 

 Fox News and several other media outlets reported overnight that he would be charged with desertion, but the Army denied the claim and the head of Army public affairs said the story is flatly wrong. 

 “The reporting from Fox News and NBC on Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl is patently false,” Maj. Gen. Ronald Lewis said in a statement. “To be clear, there have been no actions or decisions on the Sgt. Bergdahl investigation.”

I watched O’Reilly, so you wouldn't have to, when this first aired and thought that I’d puke. I was that irate again by FUX NUZ and its lies.

So, what you're saying is the Teapot Tea Party us void of any ability to appply reason, critical thinking skills, and is seriously logic challenged.

Obama derangement syndrome must be a painful affliction methinks.

We have come to expect that sort
of reporting from the GOP's propaganda arm. And so do that network's unthinking minions.
