    Your entire premise in this thread is BS, you lack the spine to address that fact and now you want to prattle at someone else about BS and BS sources and claims that have not been made? Talk about naked hypocrisy.
    It's nothing... people see a conservative Republican, it automatically means Tea Party, and as soon as guns come up or they talk historically about Jefferson's quote of Revolution, it's again automatically an "armed revolt". Aren't liberals supposed to be better educated than the rest of us? I gotta tell ya, anecdotal information isn't supporting that claim especially in the WillRockwell post. I'm surprised these quotes aren't from his own blog.
    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    Cute thesis, let's see if Sir L has the balls or intellect to back it up with an actual argument.

    You gotta love how he tries to slag Fox News watchers as being naive enough to think that the "other" news networks are biased, as if this really is not the case. Only Fox News is biased!! Poor Hazelnut and his FDS, and he is talking all about the real world too! Koo koo koo koo.
    Oops -- guess not.

    "as if this really in not the case." Yikes!

    Appeal to Belief / Appeal to Spite ("liberal media") are logical fallacies--fallacious arguments. The fact that some people believe a claim does not serve as evidence of bias.

    If you want to point out a particular slanted story with an overly negative spin on the Tea Party, fine, but to just throw out that "liberal media" shorthand claim as your line of reasoning... Doesn't fly.

    Re: FNC -- the network itself has gone on record to say that its mid-day programming is straight news while its morning and late-afternoon to evening programming are news-based opinion shows--editorial.

    Do you want to debate which side of the political spectrum each of their commentators is on?

    The most-watched shows on the network are editorial programs hosted by conservative-leaning commentators. Do you want to debate that point?

    I watch O'Reilly on a regular basis. Greta sometimes. I listen to Bret and Shep in the car. I listen/watch to get a conservative perspective on the day's events. Based on posts by others, it seems that some don't see the irony in the "fair and balanced" slogan. Fair enough?

    Haz - you have no credibility and haven't on any boards you've been on, sorry to say. You're partisan hack at 101%.

    The Reverend is right,

    You don't need lies to smear the Tea Party movement. The truth works perfectly well.

    I'm sorry Hazelnut, I already addressed one of your idiotic arguments, the idea that Fox News viewers think all the other cable news media are biased; as if other news media are not biased. As all the cable news networks are biased, Fox News viewers are right. That was simple.

    Have you got a peer reviewed study about media bias that debunks those already in the public domain? Do you have some hidden studies and decades of polling and studies from within the media that argues against that which we in the real world know about? By all means then, present them. Otherwise, piss poor job of trying to rationalize the matter, come back when you have something other than just your rambling opinion to offer; that is patently worthless at DP with all but wing nuts. Yes I know, you have goads and jibs and jokes a plenty, but little else. Which avails you not at all in an intellectual debate or conversation.

    Chuckle, I bet you honestly think that your reply is an honest to God airtight case for your asinine insistence that only Fox News is biased.

    Let's see, the more ignorant the poster, the more beligerant their reply. Yep, I get it.

    Who, seriously, who cares what you think? You "thought" the article in your own thread claimed the Tea Party was trying to use firearms to overthrow the government! You have thus far lacked the spine or intestinal fortitude to address the lack of substance in your, shall we say, highly fictional premise. So quite naturally, all that is left to you in the absence of accountability and veracity, is idiotic goads like the above. Bravo, to quote the popular internet cliche, way to fail.

    Does it ever occur to them that Fox just frames the "news narrative" in a way that confirms their outlook?
    Have you ever posted in a thread without mentioning Fox???

    I guess WillRockwell believes that Ron Paul is the president of the United States...cause you know, he won some online polls where less than 20 people voted and that apparently constitutes reality....
