    Nice allegory. You do realize you're wrong of course. The highest purpose of the press is to call the bastards on their bull****. The mainstream press isn't doing that. If it weren't for the fox network we wouldn't know about the acorn scandal, we wouldn't know about that idiot van jones, and we wouldn't know about good ol' anita's dunns speech to those high school kids where she called mao tse tung a great philosopher she thought of on a regular basis.

    All this Libbo whining about FNC is just funny. Especially after the crap that the other stations have reported in the past.

    I especially like this one:

    source

    Newsweek editor Evan Thomas brought adulation over President Obama’s Cairo speech to a whole new level on Friday, declaring on MSNBC: “I mean in a way Obama’s standing above the country, above – above the world, he’s sort of God.”

    Independents are highly overrated and did not prove to be decisive in the last election. Obama was elected because he was able to pull out unprecedented numbers of his base. For instance: Indpendents were going to make Pennsylvania a close race and the state could actually go to McCain?Palin; and this was McCain's only road to victory. The 2nd Battle of Gettysburg etc. etc.

    As we know now; McCain/Palin got slaughtered in PA. It wasn't even close. The media simply attributes to much power and too large of a vote to Independents. In reality, if we have a good candidate, Democrats can overwhelm both Republiccans and Independents put together. That was the real message of the election of 2008.

    Are they "big boys" or just a little fringe network?

    I think you're mistaken, when you consider that the Republicans and the Demcorats, together, make up less than have the registered voters and both are currently hemoraging members to the Independents.

    If I were Krewe Obama I would completely terrified of the independents and the Blue Dog Democrats, in 2012.

    I think those independents are Republicans who have left the party in droves.

    Oh Yeah!!! Those are the real important issues facing America right now. I lose sleep every night thinking about that notorious Anita Dunn speech to high school students and we all rest a little easier now that the "green-jobs czar" has left Washington. This crap is utter nonsense and I'm glad the WH called their butts out on the carpet. Now Fox will be under scrutiny for bias reporting. They will either conform to some degree of journalistic integrity or show the world their dirty underwear. This was a brilliant move by the WH.

    The Dems are losing folks, too. Not as fast as the Republicans, but losing numbers just the same.

    I wholeheartedly agree.

    If it weren't for the fox network we wouldn't know about the acorn scandal,
    Not true, the story broke in a blog. Amazingly enough I watched it originally on the evening news on another network. Crazy...

    we wouldn't know about that idiot van jones,
    and we wouldn't know about good ol' anita's dunns speech to those high school kids where she called mao tse tung a great philosopher she thought of on a regular basis.
    Because we do not know context there is zero way of determining what she was really saying. Was it, like you claimed about the two headed snake, an allegory? We need more facts to ascertain exactly what is up here.

    Don't get me wrong, if she meant it directly like it sounds - this is a big issue.
