    So is MSNBC, so is CNN, NBC got pinged hard by viewers over the last couple of years for exposed biases, CBS and Rathergate, ABC is full of partisan libs. So if you don't trust FOX I guess you can't trust any of them because they do a mirror version of the exact same thing.

I have stopped myself from making quite a few points here at DP over the years because the information I wanted to back up came from partisan sources.
    Almost anything is slanted to some extent. I've actually gone and found the same thing on Fox's website just so that Conservatives wouldn't attack the source. That's pathetic.

    The best you can do is go to different sources to see through the bias. I'm a proud NPR listener, but I know it's slanted, and as a result sometimes I watch Bill O'Reilly just for a different perspective. I can't bring myself to Beck or Hannity (too many crazy theories on Beck, and Hannity doesn't even make an effort to be unbiased).

    Purdy much any rally/protest/assembly that supports, or opposes government policies is political. I know that you know that and you're just being obtuse.

    Totally agree with this.

    Oh yes it is. Government pensions are heavily invested in mutual funds and stocks, when the market takes a hit so does a pension plan. There are plenty of financial regulatory agents in that area all day. And what do you think the stimulus was? That's right, some of that money did in fact get put into those Wall St. companies.

    Not according to the OWS'ers. And, they're not just protesting Wall Street, either.

    They're protesting everything - indeed.

    Actually, if you wanna see some stuff that the lamstream media is actually ignoring, look up the ethnic cleansing of black Africans that is occurring at the hands of the Libyan rebels. Look at the effects of the Libyan "intervention" and how it coincides with US/Western interests.

    The media as a whole has demonized the OWS movement as it threatens the status quo.
