Americans are so enamored of equality that they would rather be equal in slavery than unequal in freedom.
Alexis de Tocqueville
The networks, whether it is FOX or MSNBC, depend on advertising dollars to stay in business. Advertisers would rather play their propaganda to a larger audience than to a smaller one. The name of the game, therefore, is attracting an audience. The news networks, therefore, play what will attract the largest number of viewers, period. If a showman like Glenn Beck, for example, attracts an audience, then he stays on the air. If he fails to entertain enough people, then he's history. It is not a matter of ideology, or of reporting reality or facts, or of any spin one way or the other, but about advertising dollars.
Just like any other corporation, broadcasters are driven by the bottom line.
Can't we just turn Congress off and then turn it back on again?
Obama won the 2008 elections with 52% of the vote, he has lost much of that support due to performance and results. To make it any other issue is just a diversion. The people that supported him who now won't vote to re-elect him are seeing the results. Those that continue to support him still hear the rhetoric. Notice the difference?
Much of the Debt and Deficit that you whine about was caused by Bush, you just can't legitimately blame it all on Obama.
Jobs, Jobs!!! Where are the jobs Mr. Boehner????
