    Thus my obligatory condemnation of White supremacy will now be in every post, lest I be accused of supporting it because I didn't mention it specifically every time I post.

    So basically, what this means is that this is the new democratic party platform since a few idiots in DC said so during a walk up interview?

    ... to add a bit more on the subject of selective editing, you know that I could walk into conservative populated areas and find at least some people who support the death penalty for homosexuality or nuking x (China, Middle East, etc). Then all I would need to do was omit footage of conservatives who remonstrated such point of views and I could create that executing homosexuals or nuking countries we have troubled relations with was a common belief among the right.

    This thread is an example of zimmer's self-ownage. Because of his absurd desire to attack liberals at all costs, HE was fooled into believing that the guy in the video was a liberal. If there was any question as to whether zim is a hack, this seals the deal.

    A serious way to handle this problem is take the term 'News' away from any news site if they so choose to pass off opinion or commentary as news. The total broadcasting must contain 80% news programs/stories in order to use that name. If both news and opinion are used, then both must be used in the station name.

    All news must follow a strict reporting format that is empty of charged terms. It must be stated in an organised way based upon the subject matter, not in a selective way that pushes insignificant points out of context of significantly related points. The name News or Commentary/Opinion must be clearly seen on screen during the entire broadcast. Violation of this format would be cause for fines, as it is a misrepresentation of the product being sold or given in mass to the public. A public display of their point violations would broadcast on their station as the show is running. Fiction has a rating system, now why not non-fiction?

    It also could test for symbolic logic and conclusion for story coherency. A thesaurus could be used to help link terms from statement to statement.

    If a station falls below 80% too many times, then they loose the name news for a suspended period.

    A website would tally the level of charged terms any news source made as well as other scales of objectivity. Simple computer programs could be made to test for this. Viewers could view a integrity rating based upon that rigorous criteria. Maybe someday we could watch this integrity rating in real time as a politician speaks.

    This would be a great thesis for a university student. Possible make them a millionaire if they do a good job. I bet there were people that said they'd never put a label on food. Why not information?

    It is intended to mean "don't take it personally." I'm "just saying" or stating a point, don't take it as anything more than that. Just basically means only in this context. Like "just a scratch."

    Gee... if you want to micromanage the airwaves, perhaps we could have a similar rule for music television... MTV would have to change its name, too...
