    Laugh at the left and they go into a snit? MSNBC sucks. I argued that I never watch MSNBC. That's not defending them, that's admitting that even though they are liberal like me that I still realize that it's hardly a great place for news or for any kind of unbiased information. You can laugh at MSNBC all you want and you won't find me coming to their defense.

    Where exactly is that rage? Apparently you think pointing out how wrong you are is "flying into a rage". Maybe I've been around adults for too long and forgot exactly how to play nice with children.


    You insinuated I'm an MSNBC viewer - Wrong
    You insinuated that I think commercials should be fair and balanced - Wrong
    You accused me of sulking or flying into a rage (surprise surprise that you weren't specific) and you were - wrong

    Yes, but only down to their necks.

    Actually I was summing up many of the comments we've heard from critics of Fox News over the years and it was not intended for you personally. It was the generic Left I was referring to. My apologies for being uncear.

    I'm talking about presidential candidates being employed by Fox. I said nothing about O'Reilly or Hannity.

    That potential Presidential candidates are being employed by Fox says a great deal about the quality of their commentators. No one would seriously suggest that any regular commentators for ABC, NBC, CBS, PBS, MSNBC, etc. would ever be serious Presidential candidates..

    Note the "sheik" avoided this completely. I'd say that about sums up his "outrage".
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    I don't find MSNBC to be a credibile news source either. Other than they lean left whereas Fox leans right, I see little difference.

    Don't be ridiculous, if ABC, NBC, CBS, PBS, or MSNBC wanted to, they too could hire presidential candidates.

    Like who?

    If it would help their ratings, as well as their credibility, why wouldn't they do it? Why don't they try to get the best?

    Well, no, it sums up nothing of the sort, other than perhaps, you demonstrating for the third time that you don't understand what I'm talking about. CNN did not hire Dean knowing it was likely that he is going to run for president, which unless you know something Dean doesn't -- he isn't.
