If your blog is "Truth Handler" you hurt your credibility by citing Colbert and Stewart. These guys are comedians who bend the truth to make thier comedic points.

I hurt my credibility by posting humorous links?

LOL.

Yes.

That was funny!

I stand corrected. My point is that these guys couldn't handle the truth.

Well, if that's true, I plan on hurting my credibility on a regular basis.

I like the picture of Col Jessup to the right!!

Surely in 'The Truth Handler' there is an echo of Sideshow Bob's eloquent courtroom soliloquy on The Simpsons (from the episode in which he runs for Mayor of Springfield):

"You want the truth? You can't handle the truth. No truth-handler, you. Bah! I deride your truth-handling abilities!"

I think a blog that was intending to be a 'fair and balanced' fact presenter would not want to have such an echo. Besides what is a blog without a healthy dose of opinion thrown in? Satire is one of the best methods of social commentary.
