    Fox News denotes the Obama Administration as being unamerican. Among their personalities they present PBO as a Communist, Marxist, Stalinist, Muslim, whose political policies are going to be the death of old people and the historical legacy of the US. Pelosi is considered a prime figure under this administration. If it weren't for slanted commentary by Fox News et al., then Pelosi would not be such a prime suspect, and the Obama Administration would not be seen as an enemy of the people.

    That would be your opinion, and does not constitute proof.

    So you are arguing that media had no influence on this person's actions?

    Just to clarify your position.

    My position is that your initial quote in this thread is completely off-base and wrong. Feel free to try to prove you assertion.

    Here it is in case you forgot.

    Your position is that media does not influence political identity among its viewership.

    My position is that media, including Fox News, does bare responsibility for the actions of it's viewership when they use exaggerate claims about public figures, and the viewership reacts accordingly.

    It is apparent from interview with his mother that this man watches Fox News. The claims that Fox News made since the beginning of the Health Care debate has been one that favored exaggeration and emotional stimulus. It's call entertainment.

    This man has a criminal history and issues with discretion.

    I do not think anything should be done to Fox News, or any media outlet for the responsibility of it's viewership, but we must not let it go unnoticed. And saying that there is no responsibility Fox News has to the emotional responses of its viewership is like saying a rapper whose listener commits a crime, as advertised in his/her song bares no social responsibility for what they put on the airwaves. They do bare responsibility as it exists in a social sphere, but they do not bare legal responsibility.

    Um, okay. Let's make sure we understand each other first. This is what you claimed is bull****:

    But, as we have seen in the last year plus, there have been violent acts carried out by the right.
    So if anyone posts an example of violence committed by an arguably right-wing person or group in the last year (last 12 months), you're wrong.

    Here's some more Chappy, since I'm bored:

    Tea partiers condemn harassment - Kenneth P. Vogel and Jake Sherman - POLITICO.com

    Black Tea Party Member Refutes Claims of Tea Party Racism..... by Being Racist. - Worldnews.com

    Feeling The Heat, Tea Partiers Denounce Violence | TPMMuckraker

    Now, I fully expect you and Gina to ignore or shrug off these examples because they don't fit your neat little paradigm. I have taken away the thin veil of ignorance you both have claimed up until now though, so carrying forward the false meme of "tea baggers tolerate racism" will simply brand you as liars.

    You're welcome.
