    It's not a war on free press and free speech -- so long as they're not making stuff up.
    I'm already gearing up for Finger Vote 2014.

    Just for reference, means my post was a giant steaming pile of sarcasm.

    Yes, I support it. The "news" on Fox is a lot too creative.

    And this is different from anything MM has done in the past how?
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    Bifurcating victory (e.g. winning militarily, losing politically) is a useful salve for defeated armies. The "stab in the back" narrative helped take the sting out of failure for German generals after WWI and their American counterparts after Vietnam.

    All the same, it's nonsense. To paraphrase Vince Lombardi, show me a political loser, and I'll show you a loser.

    I dont know...(I mean that...I DONT know...) does Fox go after Media Matters? I know that 'media' doesnt matter to MM...Fox news is ALL that matters. They dont go after CNN, or ABC, or MSNBC. Which is really kinda stupid...Fox has its viewers...they do their advertising, and then MSNBC and MM and any NUMBER of assclowns on this website make it their business to promote and advertise MORE for them by attacking them 24/7. Its no wonder Fox news kills everyone else in viewership...half of them are morons that hate their guts so much they cant stop thinking about them.

    I guess "going at it with each other" wasn't the right expression. My point is, MM is exercising their right to free speech the same way anyone else does, so I don't see it as a "war on free speech," unless MM is actively lobbying or pursuing legislation to regulate Fox or take it off the air.

    I think MMA should change their name from 'Media Matters for America', to FOX NEWS Sucks and that's All We Want to Talk About Now'.

    I note your quote and point out that free speech does not mean, indicate, imply, nor guarantee anything approximating truth. Objective news reporting would be "truth." Perspectives, partisanship, sold to so and so, and any other spin should be openly and previously acknowledged, ergo the show would be labelled entertainment or a commercial.
