    Has it has it hit anybody else that's the way the English say charade? Sherrod. Hmm. Just like the lady's name in this. Sherrod.


    i find it odd that he said this, why do you think he did?

    Here is a clip of that snarky Maddow commenting on this. I put her right up there with Hannity and O'Reilly as far as biased journalism goes, however, I do have to give her research department props in as much as their research goes (albeit, ALWAYS reporting what the left wing wants to hear.) But she is, at least, credible. (I still can't stand her though.)

    But in the order of how and the way this issue came to be, is covered by here and it matches with my observations as well.

    she is credible, and always corrects anything she might get wrong.

    I wonder...if Fox news is the vast "right wing" media complex what you must think of the rest...
    When I think of rightwing media, of course I think of FAUXNews. I think of O'Reilly, Hannity, Limbaugh, Beck, and the sort. Is there even a credible rightwing media outlet out there? I would LOVE to learn about it.

    Somehow, I can't visualize a sucessfull "fair and balanced" rightwing media outlet that is truthful and credible. I don't see how it could be sucessful given their viewership, but I digress.

    Anyways, give me some links to some credible rightwing media and I will study and reconsider.

    What is it with some people always quoting Beck and then telling us how he is biased. No ****! He is a talk show host, NOT a reporter, NOT a journalist.

    Provide a link so I can see it in context and I'll be glad to give my opinion. I don't watch or listen to Beck, so I don't have a clue what he was talking about. Other posters have said he didn't buy the story from the beginning.

    I know. But if she wasn't so mockingly snarky, she'd be a LOT easier to watch. I don't recall her doing much reporting of the screw-ups on the left side of the aisle. But quick to jump on the right. Granted, her facts are facts. I'm just saying she is selective as to which facts she chooses to present. She only reports issues that put the right in a bad light, no?

    correct! however, many of the right don't seem to know that, and for what's it's worth, he is also a political activist. a loony one at that.

    These ARE TALK SHOWS, not news. Whine about their actual news if you want, but calling their talk show hosts biased does nothing. Of course they can't be relied on to be fair, they aren't there to report the news!

    By your standards there isn't any credible left wing media either as they all have their biased talk show hosts as well.

    Good point. But they STILL call it "FOXNews." That's kinda decieving, no? It should be called "FOXOpinions."
