    However, you didn't dispute it was inappropriate. You merely pointed to someone else. See my point?

    "Sarah Palin led invasion into Egypt?" Why would anyone even have to check out anything so absurd to know it has to be either satire or nonsense?

    Democracy is two wolves and sheep voting on what's for dinner. Liberty is a well armed sheep willing to contest the vote.

    Someone must listen, or no one would sponsor her show. Why anyone would listen is a mystery, but the foregoing discussion including such as Glenn and Rush and the total nonsense that they spout, gives us a clue: People like to hear nonsense as long as it supports their biases. It really is amusing to read how "your" pundit made some absurd statement, so that makes it OK that "my" pundit is an idiot as well.

    Absolutely. Same with bias. Too many are really agaist bias, they just want their bias to be prevelent.

    No one may sponsor her show. Sponsors which run ads during that timeslot may not need to specify or, due to the number of ad runs required by contract, those sponsor's ads may just be run due to the contract. Also, since this is cable, the cable company runs against those timeslots which may be national, state or local, or the advertiser may be have specifically asked for ad runs against Maddows show. We really don't know.

    All pundits cater to a specific audience. Maddow caters to middle to upper class progressive liberals who are upwardly mobile, feel elitist but may be depressed about it, and who enjoy snark as it applies to Conservatives and Republicans. It's the same audience Air America couldn't support before they filed for protection. Maddow hasn't change. The audience she caters to hasn't changed... the company and financing has changed. MSNBC, GE soon to be Comcast and Microsoft. That's a lot of money to back a biased ideal and to continue to push it over the air.
    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.
