I attack no one. Saying that someone is whining isn't attacking them. To complain about Fox turning the free press into a joke without even mentioning the completely fair, balanced, and accurate reporting of CBS invites a response. By the way, intelligint peeple kan spell Pravda.

I'll condemn the entire mainstream corporate media if you like. Would that help? I really can do it. All you have to do is ask. Please ask.

RE: The New Pravada: Fox News

I think it would be a fair comparision if CBS was actually an adjunct to the Democratic Party - but it is not. Fox on the other hand, directly coordinates its activities and its spin with the GOP. Whatever is in the GOP Daily Talking Points, becomes today's news story on Fox. I also don't buy this "they are not journalists" crap, which seems to be some kind of argument saying it is ok for these people to lie.

Recall that earlier generations faced down fascism and communism not just with missiles and tanks, but with sturdy alliances and enduring convictions. They understood that our power alone cannot protect us, nor does it entitle us to do as we please. Instead, they knew that our power grows through its prudent use; our security emanates from the justness of our cause, the force of our example, the tempering qualities of humility and restraint.

-President Barack Obama, 1st Inaugural address

I'm glad you don;t see it as a prejorative term, you little whiner.

I second that. We've got two Pravda's; the right wing Pravda and the not quite as right wing Pravda.

RE: The New Pravada: Fox News

Clueless, I said you were whining. I didn't say you were a whiner. Keep it up, and you will be a whiner. You're the one bitchin'. I don't know why you complain so hard anyway, you post in a public forum and expect no one to have an opposing view?
