    Oh, are conservatives trying to shut down liberals?
    Liberals can't bring all over to their side by persuasion so they choose to use their right to free speech to silence the other side. Typical liberalism. They are anything but tolerant. They are oppressors.

    Whoa! That's going to bit too far there buddy. I am all for jostling around, but saying someone has certain diseases in what not just ain't cool with me.

    It's not like the left hasn't suggested the idea.

    Jonathan Zasloff, a law professor at UCLA, suggested that the federal government simply yank Fox off the air. "I hate to open this can of worms," he wrote, "but is there any reason why the FCC couldn't simply pull their broadcasting permit once it expires?"Liberals on 'Journolist' Wanted Government to Shut Down Fox News
    But while Zasloff did make those comments, it's fair to also point out that they did not go unchallenged:
    And so a debate ensued. Time's (Michael) Scherer, who had seemed to express support for increased regulation of Fox, suddenly appeared to have qualms: "Do you really want the political parties/white house picking which media operations are news operations and which are a less respectable hybrid of news and political advocacy?"

    Guess what? That's one person.

    Please tell me, how the hell does one person suddenly represent all liberals?

    Are conservatives trying to "shut down" liberals? You serious? ACORN? You telling me that wasn't shut down because of it's campaign to get people voting for Obama? Have you even begun to read the attacks against NPR? That's quite a hilarious statement you made there.

    The day conservatives aren't attacking liberals is the day that conservatism or liberalism dies.

    *Edit to add:

    And the fact that you associate Fox News with conservatism is also sad. Why would you want to associate with such an unethical entity?

    *Edited to add again:

    Also, your link says "law professor", not liberal. Someone thinks the obvious, that Fox News is misleading, useless garbage that airs programs that are labeled as "news" is misleading and that makes him liberal? My guess is he has a brain... if that makes him liberal we'll take him.

    From that perspective, I can certainly support this 1-on-1 battle of the partisan news entities. Essentially, what MM is saying is FoxNews has supported the GOP for so long and few media outlets have called them out on being the machine they are for the Republican party. Of course, there's sure to be a liberal slant to their news reporting just as their clearly is a conservative slant to FoxNews, but as long as what MM reportS is true and accurate, I don't have a problem with it.
    Then MSNBC is the arm of the Democratic Party and Unions. Have you been watching since the protests in Wis started? I bet you can't find one person all this time who has been Pro-Walker on MSNBC.

    LOL, it was journolist. You had to be a liberal to be a member.
    ACORN and NPR are about federal funding, not about silencing someone. Conservatives don't try to shut people up just because they don't like what's being said. Liberals don't want any competition. They want to peddle their propaganda unchallenged.
