    Guess what, liberals still will not be pleased, and conservatives will have to yet again defend their choice rockstar pundits. People love pundits, they eat them up. Liberals and conservatives are doing it.
    I don't place a lot of stock in pundits except those I find entertaining (i.e. Jon Stewart). I'm much more open to the views of journalists, technical experts, academics, policy think-tank types, etc.

    Ok, Conservative. Time to put your money where your mouth is.

    This'll take a day or two, so that I can gather the necessary evidence.

    When I provide clear "talking points" and obvious Republican/NeoKhan opinions and perspectives pertaining to issues in Hard News broadcasts, then you have to admit it, before your peers here.

    I'll even let you choose the Hard News programs to draw this proof from. Select at least two. Must be Fox News Channel, not local subsidiaries. Must also be daytime/primetime broadcasts. I've never watched their latenight faire, so for all I know they may broadcast objective news in the middle of the night.(I think Shepard Smiths recent statements regarding wisconsin disqualify him at this point, as he appears to be having a crisis of conscience.)

    You up for it?

    I can watch Stewart, but I'm in it for the jokes, nothing more. As far as journalists go....I'm not so happy with them. The rest, definitely.

    So Kane, Just a guess here, but where do you get your hard news from? I am going to take a shot, a guess if you will and say possibly from Amy Goodman on LINKTV?

    So you think that any government having the power to ban any media (news communications outlet) is a good thing. FoxNews is just like CNN or MSNBC or Ch. 2 CBS or whatever. Each has appeal to a segment of the population and regardless of what YOU and YOUR PREJUDICE has you thinking, it's a healthy exercize of democracy.
    It's Freedom of Speech. And you sit back applauding the control and censoring of that freedom. For that you rated my "liberal genius" sarcasm, because in holding to that position and building upon it you'll give ALL OF OUR FREEDOMS TO GOVERNMENT. When that happens you have a fascist state mister genius. Me a "know it all"? Yep. You're right. I know all about what Freedom means.

    Now you can get out your fantasyland death ray and zap me again....oooh! I'm dead?! ..and your still stuck on stupid!

    The question, was it political? I don't know, didn't watch it, just saw video and signage which was political.
