FoxNews isn't 'fair and balanced'; it's just different from the leftist sources, and is what the majority of viewers agree with, according to ratings of the past umpteen years. If it was fair and balanced, you'd see way more leftist opinions presented in non debate settings, but you don't. And you won't.

Right wing talk radio is right wing; nothing wrong with that; except that leftists constantly try to silence them with hypocritical bs pc tactics that they have no problem holding as sabres when they sniff out the same injustices in the world.

Bottom line is that if you think your news is the 'correct' news, you're an idiot. Just like it for what it is, have fun debating people who don't agree with you, then shut up.

Not true, just look at MSNBC they do completely original stories. Look at the recent tirade against Sarah Palin.

:face:

The American public gets exactly what they want and what they deserve.

Has anyone in the national media interviewed an actuarial about what to expect from the ACA? Nope. Why not?

Took me 2 minutes to find this:

Also, what point are you trying to make about MSNBC? I think all previous posts in this thread have stated that they like FOX are not news but opinion.

LOL, a blog buried deep in CNN's website isn't exactly "Mainstream Media" coverage is it?

There are stories and then there's political slant.

Show me evidence of this being covered in Primetime or by the Wash Post, NYT, or one of the big Four.

Paraphrase:

There is no "objective" news so it's stupid to talk about it.

BTW, 90% of the media is leftist-biased despite America agreeing with FoxNews. And the bs hypocritical leftists are always trying hatchet-jobs against right-wing radio.

Like I said, it's stupid to talk about it. Now shut up.

Yesterday was Rush's first day back from his Christmastime hiatus. He spent 10 or 15 minutes on Conan and this topic that his discusses often

http://www.rushlimbaugh.com/daily/2014/ ... ia_montage

We put together a montage of at least 20 different media people all using the phrase, all using the word, and whenever we have found it happening again, we've put together another montage. Well, I guess last week sometime Conan did the same thing, as though it had never been done before, and the media is talking about what a brilliant comedic bit it was, and the media's talking about, "Oh, my God, look at what Conan's discovered!"

The media is out there, "My gosh, this is incredible what Conan's discovered about the way the media operates," and I will bet you that the 20 writers that Conan O'Brien has will each win an Emmy for this

If this was done on Conan's show at the time this was posted here (around 12/24) it definately isnt the first time Conan's done it. I've seen it several times.
