    Where did I ever claim to be the original author? I think your "criticism" comes off more like "desperation"

    In case it wasn't clear, I'm pointing out that your tired attempts at humor were completely off topic and added absolutely nothing of value to the discussion. There are 500,000 threads other discussing Fox's bias - if you don't have anything to say about this topic, why post?

    Can someone please tell these people to stop saying FauxNews? Anyone who says it looks like a damned degenerate.

    Or, are you saying that MSNBC leans right, and was simply bowing to pressure from the left?
    Seeing as no one knew how long the suspension was going to be, or whether it would lead to a firing, I would say that is was less important initially.

    Scarborough got the same treatment. Good for MSNBC...showing 'integrity.'
    He only got the same treatment after the fuss with Olbermann. Scarborough had made earlier donations and had not had the same issues over them as this. And please stop with the trash talking, try to have some respect.

    So...lets see if I understand your perspective. MSNBC is actually a CONSERVATIVE leaning program with conservative leadership that only punished Scarborough to even the score. They actually ARENT a program loaded head to toe with liberals and liberal programming (and the occasional pinkie toe like Scarborough). And they dont DAILY broadcast liberal rhetoric. They 'attacked' Olbermann...then threw mornin Joe under the bus as a sacrificial offering. Because after all...they CARE about presenting news in an unbiased manner...

    I know its just a trivial matter...but if the OP story is factual...Scarborough himself went to the NBC administration and told them of his donations on Friday. And instead of being a whiney bitch about it he apologized and took his punishment like a man.

    It must be fun to put words into people's mouths. But I do ask that you stop it- it's rather obnoxious. I haven't commented a single word about the lean of MSNBC, so you're just making stuff up. I don't know how they lean other than hearsay. I haven't had cable television in 5 years, and I don't really pay attention. I really don't care. You are definately reaching for facts not in evidence if you somehow get the idea otherwise. All I know is that, according to the facts, Olbermann was given an indefinite suspension, and only reinstated him after much noise was made. For the same sin, Scarborough was later given 2 days suspension. Do you see any factual errors here?

    That and teabagger. It says a lot more about the people who use these childish expressions than the people they're trying to slam.

    I think it's more of an issue of NBC trying to repair its long tarnished reputation as a liberal mouthpiece incapable of serious journalist integrity (us old timers remember there actually used to be such a thing). Of course they went about it without much thought and went after their biggest star first. No doubt that was done in attempt to get a little press for their new and improved position on bias (more likely the appearance of a new position). I think they learned from the Olbermann example that the suspensions need only last a short amount of time in order to cause less inconvenience at the network and the most PR. It could also be that in an attempt to appear unbiased, they go harder on the liberal. Make no mistake, though. NBC is attempting to jiggle the toilet handle of reputation, and we're all being a little manipulated here.

    I prefer when people use those terms, as well as stuff like libtard, moonbat, etc. It sets off my idiot radar and lets me know who to avoid.

    Its useful.
