    [QUOTE=DeanPatsFan;2637922]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?[/QUOTE]

    You've obviously never studied the history of anti-miscegenation laws. The answer to your question is "no."

    [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.

    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.

    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]

    A Long Time Ago-- maybe 1965-66... Radio story teller Jean Shepherd predicted that all news of the future would be slanted to serve some agenda. He also predicted that Politics and ShowBiz would become the same thing-- just look at our Political conventions which are staged events , just like infomercials. He also predicted that all sports would degenerate to the level of Pro Wrestling, with costumes, bragging and posturing for the fans== that too has at least partially come true also.
    News is more important than sports-- so the fact that Mass Media news is so untrustworthy and is aimed at influence peddling to the public is a sad fact of modern life. Just teach your kids to see thru the hype.

    Is there really any doubt that most of the MSM has a liberal slant? It is pretty easy to understand, I think.

    The overwhelming percentage of our universities are more liberal t han conservative. As college educated professionals, they enter the working world with that slant. Unlike the business world, journalists and teachers (I am one) enter a world of entitlement and rights. Furthermore, in the book Bias, the author makes a point of saying how the heads of many of these networks and papers live altogether in their own lilttle worlds that lack the "Pennsylvania types who need guns and religion."

    That said, a smaller part of the MSM has a conservative slant.

    If you don't think this is true, compare the headlines and story placement the NYT (far left liberal), the Daily News and Newsday (somewhat left) and the Post (right wing.) A local paper, (the LI Sun, I think) is rw. Same world events - totally different takes. More often that not, the slant favors the left.

    Just end this thread. You obviously are so out of touch with reality that you will believe the Republican party line. The party of panderers, hypocrites, boy-lovers, religious fundamentalists, corrupt politicians, and RACIST agendas.

    The Democratic party doesnt offer much more in terms of spine, but I'd rather vote for the wimp rather than the crook anyday.

    What has Hussein done to deserve the Presidency of the United States?

    What are his accomplishments?

    He was a Senator for all of 5 months before he decided to run for President.

    What has he accomplished?

    What is his experience, besides listening to hateful speech and hanging out with terrorists?

    About the same accomplishments as GW, except a lot smarter.

    It's an absolute fact that the media wants this....The producers of "24" admitted they cast a black man as President because they wanted to "warm" America to the idea....The media today has a HUGE influence on the way the masses think in this country....We've lost the ability to think for ourselves and we all think we're "geniuses" because we heard it or read it somewhere....Lemmings!
