    the media owe me an apology for sensationalizing everything to the point that I have become numb to it, and for forcing me to dig to get real news.

    Now if there is a necessary apology out there by the media, this is it.

    Seriously, what happened to news broadcast that went like this

    "This is what happened today, and this is all the facts that we know"
    The end.
    Make up your own damned mind on what to think. I could care less what some "expert" the news channel brings on has to think.

    No, the press would have gone there anyway, but I agree the sheriff is stupid.

    The sheriff and Paul Krugman were the first out of the shoot. You're correct. That doesn't mean the media had to go with their speculations, but news is news I guess.

    That's what the sheriff should have done.
    The media came out and said this is what the sheriff had to say. So technically, I guess they were reporting the facts.

    from what I can see, everybody is shooting. doesn't matter who's first. when johnny smeared poop on his clothes I didn't do it too.

    "oh yeah, well that blog last year had an insinuation by a guy who seems like a [insert ideology here] saying something that sounded like a sorta-violent-sounding metaphor." all of it is asinine, all of it.

    When was the news ever like this? Certainly not since Vietnam.

    I think you owe the DP community an apology for blatantly demonstrating you never learned that two wrongs don't make a right.
