    What news source is not biased?

    The fact that they may be biased does nothing to discredit the idea that they are able to play an independent role from regional governments, who rely on controlling information to keep their people down.

    Fair enough, Zyroh, but do you feel others will do the same?

    How can you be certain others will 'live and let live'? That idea runs contrary to all human experience.

    Well, the longer Mubarak hangs around in Egypt, the more power the Muslim Brotherhood is gaining. The time for the White House to drop its balls was last week so that we could maintain a sense of future for Egypt (and the rest of the region). Now the situation has become more volatile and mirky.

    The religious right elected Barrack Obama?

    It must be the religious left you were thinking of.

    Was Barrack Obama not expected to pander to the religious right by showing that he was a church-attending Christian during the campaign? Oh wait. Yeah, he was.

    You can call that "christian privilege." In other words, the ongoing pandering and accomodation that the religious right expects to see from anyone who wants to get elected in this country.

    The "religious" left doesn't get pandered too?

    What is the official conservative position on this crisis? Half say we should stand by Mubarak because the alternative will be worse and the other half say we should support the protesters and their quest for democracy. You guys better see what FOX wants you to think so you can all get on the same page..
