    Access.


    So you got nothing but paranoid ranting, gotcha.

    No, I have common sense, and the ability to read.

    Well, allow me to turn it around....I am not saying that Reuters is the Huff Post or anything, just that their sympathies of some of the Photogs, and Editors that they employ are with a side in the fight. For that their own credibility is at stake with a segment of the population they are supposed to serve. To dismiss any acknowledgment of that, is to be blatant in ones own bias.

    Nonsense. The only reason to attack Hayes when we are talking about Reuters cropping photos, is to deflect, and distract. That you don't agree with Hayes is well known, but then again I don't agree with Daily KOS so we're even.

    Again, nonsense. Do you or don't you care when conservatives are dishonest?

    And I'm still waiting for you to support your claim BTW.

    In that I see your assumptions, largely informed by your bias. But the fact is you have not proven or even supported your claim. Remove your assumptions, and objectively try and support your claim.

    I think you may be projecting here. I value honesty, which is why I get my news from FOX among others.

    And yours are not.......HA!


    But the fact is you have not proven or even supported your claim. Remove your assumptions, and objectively try and support your claim.

    give me the parameters. What is it that you would accept as proof of the claim that Reuters is Pro Hamas/Hezi?

    Wasting your time? how about you get off the couch, come up out of the basement, clean and shave, and put on something other than your Scooby Doo Footy PJ's and we can talk about wasting time.....?

    Seriously man, your on a message board, it is all about wasting time.

    When someone relegates to personal insults, it's almost an assured assumption to make that they are not approaching a discussion from a solid position of strength and that this is a failing they are aware of and attempt to compensate for by namecalling and insults to detract from the weakness of their position.

    Feel free to come back when you have an actual point.

    Im sorry, I think he ASSumed you were capable of reading what he posted "Access" and determining what he meant.

    Its clear he is talking about Reuters getting access to the information that can be obtained from the IHH side of the struggle as long as they agree to report for them, this way Reuters gets stories with info that other news sources get, and the IHH gets some of their information put out there under the guise of a "credible" news source.
    "I condemn the ideology of White Supremacy and Nazism. They are thugs, criminals, and repugnant, and are against what I believe to be "The American Way" "
    Thus my obligatory condemnation of White supremacy will now be in every post, lest I be accused of supporting it because I didn't mention it specifically every time I post.
