    It is starting to become clear that at the end of the day both "sides" are the same.

    I just see an example that had the network been switched to "Fox news" under a republican president, we would be hearing an outcry of foul play. But with MSNBC, its just standard procedure by the media. MSNBC is every bit as slanted, and arguably more than Fox news. The real difference is that Fox news has foxy anchors...

    I am starting to see blurry lines when it comes to left and right. My intent is not to stick up for Fox news. It just is what it is.
    I pictured you as that guy Gaylord in Showboat, passing up taxis to walk because he's broke and playing it off as if it's the doctor's advice. - Clmetal

    It goes back & forth to give us an illusion of choice. I love one of George Carlins old rants where he discusses this.

    BW, I wasn't trying to say FOX is better than MSNBC. I was just trying to point out that everyone who isn't a conservative claims FOX is not real news. These are the same people who claim MSNBC is. Not you, just a general statement. If Bill O'Reilly made a video claiming that he got canned because Washington wasn't happy with him, there would be a huge uproar.

    And kr, you're right, most of the news is just a script. I am beginning to find that out.

    Many "journalists" are told what to write & then they just go get the sound bites to substantiate the claim. I mean how hard can it be to be a journalist? Or get a degree in it? All you have to do is PREPARE for an interview....OR NOT....



    Btw Mo Brooks has a Honors degree from DUKE University in Economics...Hello & DOH.
