    Oy. I still don't understand why people think they HAVE to be part of every single poll. Sometimes it's not all about you.... Just sayin'.

    You know what bothers me? When people make blanket generalizations in threads where they've already been shot down for stupid comments (like hannity being attacked by liberals when it was a conservative that did so).

    I'd be willing to bet that many people on both sides of the isle watch stuff they disagree with, I know I do. Throwing around gross generalizations about how close minded most liberals are makes one wonder why you'd be throwing those stones in that glass house in the first place...

    BTW, Mellie, if honesty had anything to do with ratings, Limbaugh, Hannity, Beck, Olbermann and many other media partisan talking heads wouldn't have tv or radio shows because they're all self gratifying info-tainers..

    I didn't say I had to be part of the poll, nor did I participate in it. I was just saying that your poll wasn't well constructed. Just sayin'.

    Honesty does have something to do with ratings. People like hearing those who aren't afraid to speak their minds honestly. They like to hear passionate voices -- people who actually care about what they're doing and saying.

    When they find out that someone has been dishonest or dishonorable, many stop watching. Of course, Olbermann's ratings are mainly because he's on the far-left fringe and that population isn't very large in this country.

    You mean like discovering electricity, being a Postmaster General, and making a fortune with his printing presses? Those shallow stories?

    I'm not knocking on the guy - Ben Franklin is one of my favorite Founding Fathers. I'm just saying that it seems hypocritical of the people at the rally to use him an example of honor when I seriously doubt that their sense of honor includes promiscuity and prostitution, both of which Ben Franklin participated in with great gusto.

    That would be fine if honesty were part of the equation. But it's not. It's emotionalized propaganda and nothing more. Each side will change their arguments depending who is in office. For example, during most of the Bush presidency, many of the right-wing political entertainers blamed Clinton (and not entirely uncalled for) for many of the problems faced by Bush. But now that people are giving it back, claiming that many of the problems Obama has were inherited by Bush, it becomes a "Oh they're just trying to blame Bush" thing.

    There's no honesty. Rarely is nonpartisan data ever presented. It's emotionalized tripe and hyper-partisan propaganda. These people are entertainers after all, and honesty often has little to do with entertainment.

    You're absolutely right about that. These pundits that affect political opinion so much aren't paid to be honest - they are paid to sell commercials, and they'll say anything they can to do so.

    When you think about it, isn't prostitution just another form of charity?

    Exactly. They need ratings, the way they get ratings on both sides is through sensationalism. People should really understand this point. Apparently, we have no stomach for dry, informative debate and dialog so we mask all our "news" in the form of entertainment. But then we don't do the necessary research to disentangle hyperbole and sensationalism from fact and reality.

    I'd rather play a drinking game watching the Bob Newheart show.
