Either you don't pay attention, or you are being deliberately deceptive (who could possibly believe that?)
George Stephanopolous has already be a stand in as an anchor newscaster on ABC, and is scheduled to be a regular on that network. I might also mention that he has been a reporter on ABC News as the political commentator for quite some time now….

An end of the year gift from Fox. Of all the notables to have died in 2007, they went with the gut on their choice of headline and picture. You can always depend on the kids at Fox to marginalize the important and go with the fluff.

I'm not looking for a secretary. Just an intellectually honest posting standard. I've watched you dismiss a number of member's postings by questioning the funding source. I think you are missing an opportunity to display for all to see how you develop trust in your sources by applying the same standard you apply to others. Otherwise, we just might have to discount the credibility of your information...

Who's Fair and Balanced?: Fox News Channel's coverage was more balanced toward both parties than the broadcast networks were. On FOX, evaluations of all Democratic candidates combined were split almost evenly - 51% positive vs. 49% negative, as were all evaluations of GOP candidates - 49% positive vs. 51% negative, producing a perfectly balanced 50-50 split for all candidates of both parties.

On the three broadcast networks, opinion on Democratic candidates split 47% positive vs. 53% negative, while evaluations of Republicans were more negative - 40% positive vs. 60% negative. For both parties combined, network evaluations were almost 3 to 2 negative in tone, i.e. 41% positive vs. 59% negative.

Is this in dispute?

WTF is everybody getting all wound-up about, it's entertainment, folks. News is just another way to sell soap and cars. You have to be a freaking dumbass to use only one news source. Every bleeding one of them has a perspective. Why? Because human beings decide what to report and how much to report and how to report it.

Don't like these poll results? Fine, fund your own.

The biggest problems we are facing right now have to do with George Bush trying to bring more and more power into the executive branch and not go through Congress at all and that’s what I intend to reverse.

Nice try. You want to see who owns Sourcewatch, Look it up. Post it. Unlike most of the natterings from the "research institutes" who hide their foundation benefactors, their dubious intent and their political agendas, Sourcewatch and media transparency both publish all of their sources.

As I posted above, Media Transparency makes no bones about their interest to out Conservative BS.

Sourcewatch has a complete list of all their funding on their website. You will be VERY surprised with the results of your research.

Either do it, publish it or shut up. I don't do other's research.

If you are going to rationalize broadcast news, at least do so from an independent poll source [commercial poll sources are plenty] instead of a known conservative [or liberal] polling source. Why taint your comments with bogus data. That seems conta-indicative of your science background.

And regarding news vs entertainment. Their is a considered perception that the NEWS does not spin and that is left to the commentators/editorial boards of broadcasts. It is why for so many years there has been a specific break in the broadcast when a station does an "editorial". It is an FCC rule.

No, I got really sidetracked when I fired everyone except the paint guy. I need to get that process restarted next week.
