    The most egregious is the loss of our free press. Seriously...WTF happened there? Most of our press is nothing more than a government mouthpiece in some way.

    Second and third are bias that are unacceptable regardless of who does it. But there is again a difference between being openly supportive and directly promoting propaganda from the administration.. both are bad, but the latter is far worse.

    Fourth is extremely unacceptable. No owner of a news organisation should tell what can and can not be published or direct an editorial line. There is only one thing worse than direct censorship.. that is self-censorship based on fear or economic/political ramifications.
    Hell just froze over. I agree with so much of your post

    Well put. It's truly sad that you cannot rely on a single MSM news outlet for reliable information. I have to cross reference far too often.

    They were covered.

    Americans don't feel a lot of sympathy for the terrorists the Isrealis were fighting, so the sympathetic coverage you desire wasn't going to go anywhere.

    Besides, it's over there, and who really cares?

    There are all sorts of other protests, and bigger than these whimperings,
    No actually there's not.

    that don't get covered by so much as the local paper. To pick a recent example, protests during the Israel attacks in Palestine.
    The protests in the U.S. were not even 1/10th of the size of the tea parties. Furthermore; they were in fact covered I distinctly remembering seeing numerous videos of the Islamo-Nazis and their fellow travelers shouting "kill kill kill the Jews" and "death to Israel" and mobbing peaceful pro-Israeli counter-protesters like the fascist scum that they are.



    Whether you like the links here or not; whatever, they're biased, but there's a speck of real journalism at least being referenced here, and what they say is at least partially true.

    The Washington Independent Tea Party Activists: Tax Day Events Will Attract ‘Silent Majority’

    It's not grass roots, it's not some uprising, it's part of the conservative machine (I consider Fox to be a part as well, for truly obvious reasons).

    Anyway, you can keep your delusions on this particular topic as far as I'm concerned; I have trouble giving a damn.

    First of all Fox News did not promote the event they covered the event only their op-ed guys openly promoted it just as Chris Mathews and Keith Olbermen jocked Obama's cock.

    Second of all you try to prove that the protests were somehow part of the conservative machine by posting leftist mouth pieces and talking heads, a bit ironic, don't ya think? Of course conservative organizations promoted and organized the event how the hell else are you going to organize a national protest? It's no different then what Moveon or ANSWER did with the anti-war protests no matter how much your articles lefty articles would try to dispute it.

    Sorry, buddy, but blatant denial of the facts of the case don't pass for debate around here. We can chat when you've got that figured out.

    Of course you did. Why did you feel the need to inform me? Did you think that I'd care or something?
