    McCain's wife is a butter face, although the millions make her better looking as well.

    You would have to read it on snopes because the criminal liberal media is all but ignoring it.

    Meanwhile they make Hussein's militant wife out to be the next Dolly Madison.

    [QUOTE=Warfish;2637581]While you and I disagree how much "drumbeating" there was, it DOES shine a spotlight on one distatseful reality of modern media:

    If it bleeds, it leads.

    If it's going to get a reaction (i.e. more viewers/readers) it will get issued, likely with top billing, theme music and a great little logo to go with it.

    [B]Media for Profit is proving itself to be a very bad concept. Ironic as it is, media (i.e. the News, not the rest) may be better for us all as a non-profit-mandated business sector.

    I.e. Want a News TV network? Great, no profit. And No "opinion" shows. Just report the news, and do so in an unbaised form. Get too baised, and you loose your broadcast license and some other group will get THEIR shot to give us fair unbiased news.[/B]

    And while we're at it, how about we actually hire some reporters, instead of using the friggin AP for every ounce of news. Thats far too much power in the AP's hands IMO.

    Oh, and Want an Entertainment Network? Great, good luck......but no news shows, only "opinion" shows, and make all the bank you can with yer American Idol, Rush Limbaugh and Air America. No fairness Doctrine, it's all entertainment. If folks want their news from it, thats their choice to choose who to watch.

    Sounds extreme, I am sure, but a Nation without a reliable trustworth media, or worse with a media filled with what we have today (opinion and sensationalism masquerading as "news") is the first step down a very unpleasant road. And I simply don't think ANY of our media can be trusted today. Maybe it's a part of the ongoing UnCivil War, and maybe it'll only get worse, and maybe it cannot even be fixed now......but we ought to try.

    I have to admit, I am at a loss at this point. But I know what we have today is very very bad and horrdily untrustworthy.[/QUOTE]

    To your point about having a "non-profit" media, my only question is: "How would they be funded?" Federal? State? Private foundations? You see the problem, I think. It would just be a different spin on what we already have... media influenced by its purse-strings.

    Bias in media is virtually guaranteed, and always has been. Some mitigate extreme bias by building in factual checks and avoidance of excessive editorializing, but even the choice of news itself can be biased. I like some of the stories on NPR, for example, but I have to say that 80% of their choices for news are patently far-left, globalist trivia. And they are not for profit! I think I'd rather have the media remain as it is and let it show its colors over time. Just look at this site to see how biased WE are in our choice of news venues. One man's NYT is another man's poison. Why? Because the NYT doesn't somehow reflect our ideological agenda, not because we expect the NYT to inform us in any real sense. Too many people have made up their minds concerning their "truths." The rest is seeking validation or dismissing contrary opinion. Sadly, that's how the majority of us our built.

    They're probably covering his world tour of Afghanistan and Iraq because it is such a rare event.

    Explain to me why mocking McCain's age is perfectly acceptable, while mocking Obama's race is not?

    mocking anyone isn't acceptable but cmon Shakin, it's not like Old White Men have a long history of being oppressed. as Carlin said White People's job is to give the blues, not sing em.

    Hussein is not black. He's half black and half white. He's Halfrican.

    If all previous Presidents were black and Hussein wins the Presidency this fall, would he be considered the first white President?
