    Looks like Olbermann just got suspended for making campaign contributions to liberals. So called news anchors aren't supposed to do that because it shows that they do favor one side over the other and makes the network look biased. Good for MSNBC. Even though they are obviously biased, at least they did the right thing this time. Here's the link.

    Economics in One Lesson (Seminar for High-School Students, Sponsored by Anastasia Thiele)

    Amazon.com: Economics in One Lesson: The Shortest and Surest Way to Understand Basic Economics (9780517548233): Henry Hazlitt: Books

    The Ludwig von Mises Institute was founded in 1982 as the research and educational center of classical liberalism, libertarian political theory, and the Austrian School of economics. It serves as the world's leading provider of educational materials, conferences, media, and literature in support of the tradition of thought represented by Ludwig von Mises and the school of thought he enlivened and carried forward during the 20th century, which has now blossomed into a massive international movement of students, professors, professionals, and people in all walks of life. It seeks a radical shift in the intellectual climate as the foundation for a renewal of the free and prosperous commonwealth.

    "Everyone carries a part of society on his shoulders," wrote Ludwig von Mises, "no one is relieved of his share of responsibility by others. And no one can find a safe way for himself if society is sweeping towards destruction. Therefore everyone, in his own interest, must thrust himself vigorously into the intellectual battle."


    It is the mission of the Mises Institute to place human choice at the center of economic theory, to encourage a revival of critical historical research, and to advance the Misesian tradition of thought through the defense of the market economy, private property, sound money, and peaceful international relations, while opposing government intervention as economically and socially destructive.



    Mises Circle at Furman University - The Coming Currency Crisis and the Downfall of the Dollar

    FDR followed up on Hoover's attempted inflation by closing the banks and plotting an unprecedented inflation that ended in the paper money we use today. So strong was the faith in inflation that his administration even mandated turning in all gold to the government. It was a desperate move that only made matters worse. So it is in our own time. Chronicling the actions of the Fed since the onset of the 2008 meltdown and following has been harrowing, for it reveals an amazing parade of folly. It's as if we've learned nothing from the long history of inflation and hyper-inflation.

When it comes to cable news cnn and msnbc lean far left, much further left than fox news leans right and its not close. I was watching msnbc and fox on the Tues and the msnbc bunch of Olbermann, Maddow and Mathews were disguting and they were very disrespectful to the conservatives they had on. I cant stand them.
    You are so right Ugly, (no pun intended!) Olbermann & Maddow were just their typical jerks. Maddow couldn't help herself from dissing anyone from the GOP or any of their wins. She kept trying to figure out ways to downplay the GOP victory esp when a Tea Party figure was involved. Actually to his credit Oblermann was less obnoxious then usual. Matthews was also just an idiot. And that guy on the far left, what was his name? He was DETERMINED to undercut any Tea Party member's policies.

    Oddly enough on CNBC, they were MUCH more receptive to conservative guests and people with different viewpoints. Oblermann, Maddow & Matthews were nearly fascist in their demeanor. It was like NBC was thinking "No one is watching this channel except business people (conservative by nature) so let's have on a few republicans!"

    However FOX sometimes is not much better. Sean hannity is not only unwilling to hear any liberal viewpoints but he cannot hear anything that does not agree with his narrow conservative agenda & tries to make anyone who does not agree with him a kook. I do give FOX some credit for having on Combs but he is also a complete liberal idiot as much as Hannity is a conservative idiot.

    I agree, Hannity is narrow minded and far right. Which is probably why Fox didn't have him cover the election. They were at least smart enough to keep the news anchors on during the coverage instead of having opinion based people like Hannity or Beck do the coverage. This is probably why Fox had much better ratings and Olbermann has been suspended. Fox is just a better ran station.

    It is hardly unusual for media companies to support candidates and political parties. General Electric, which owns NBC, has given $245,000 to the Democratic governors and $205,000 to the Republican governors since last year.
    Disney, which owns ABC, donated $20,000 to committees associated with Republicans and $11,000 to Democratic committees. CBS gave $13,000 to Democratic PACs and $1,000 to Republican ones.

    That is right from the link you provided. Surely you can see the difference in a company giving money as opposed to someone who is supposed to be an unbiased news journalist. Obviously even MSNBC can see the difference.
