Obama is definitely Jimmy Carter.
Just putting it out there.
It is pretty funny hiow much hatred and disdain there is amongst the left for FOX, which is materially no different and no more or less baised than their competators. Their only sin, leaning right instead of left.
And for that, we get endless posts, images and pure undistilled hatred for anything related to them and anyone who watches them or (heaven forbid) anyone who uses their news (even though so much of their news content is sources from the AP).
It says alot in my view, how intolerant some are about allowing opposing viewpoints to exist.
CNN, ABC, NBC, NPR are not as biased as Fox or MSNBC. Fox and MSNBC are party shills under the guise of News.
CNN, ABC, NBC, NPR might have left leaning folks working for them, but the mission of their network isn't to put forth an ideological agenda.
And if you're wondering why Fox is hated more than MSNBC it's because MSNBC is irrelevant whereas Fox is he #1 news network (for douchebags).
All of them.
That does not preclude them from a right-leaning piece from time to time as events dictate. But as a whole, they lean left. Not as far or as obvious/strong left as MSNBC, but left none-the-less.
I am aware we disagree on this point.
Or should we just accept it all under the guise of 'we'll yeah they all lie, but your side is just a little worse".
No thank you.
Using our clown media as a barometer of whether we are tolerant towards others is a little much. Having a good conversation over a pint with someone with different views is a much better indication. Swallowing all or some of what Rupert Murdoch/Roger Ailes (Fox) or Steve Burke (NBC) deems to be "news" is not.
It is, when an equally dumb as **** Joe Biden, or a crazy extremist like al Gore, escapes similar treatment.That to me, is different than CNN ripping Palin for being dumb as f*** because she's obviously dumb as f***.
Once could, if so inclined, also point out the rather obvious sexism involved in how Palin (who I persoanlly hold in very low esteem) was treated by these media providers on issues beyond policy.
But as we both know, it's only as -ism when a liberal complains it is.
